I wasn’t sure I was going to post this story. But InvisiblePeople.tv has one goal and that is to present the realities of homelessness. And who knows, maybe Paul’s story will strike a chord with someone out there.
Paul has been sober for one week. When I asked why such a young guy is homeless, he said, “Drugs, man. Sticking a needle in my arm… because of that. ruining relationships.” He’s right. Addiction is a serious crisis. One that leads to homelessness for many people.
Before you judge Paul, look at me. This Aug 24th, I will have 14 years sober. Let me assure you, I was far worse than Paul. But I’m proof that people can change.
I hope Paul makes it. Sobriety is a road less traveled, so he has a long battle ahead. Luckily, there are places like Phoenix Rescue Mission that is there for people when they are ready to change.
