Dear Woman on Gov’t Assistance,
Many people are disparaging you, criticizing you because you’re not independent. I’ve come to terms that we are all dependent in our own rights (borrowed books from the library, free school lunch, financial aid, reduced metrocards, medicaid/care, Sally Mae, bank loans, credit cards, car lease, slept on someone else’s couch, asked a friend for a ride) we’ve all had at least one of them. You did what you had to do for the reason you had to do it – to help your family, to get back on your feet etc… there is NO Judgment! Don’t be burdened with humiliation and oppressed by people’s censure. Take the temporary relief, be unashamed and unapologetic.
p.s. might I add, don’t take advantage of the system though.
