Does it ever get to you

When you read posts about people struggling. Every time I read a post about we got evicted or we have no food it breaks my heart. I know some people chose to live that way. But my heart still breaks for them. My dh said its because I'm a softie with a big heart.

Nothing wrong with having a huge heart. We need more people like you.

I don't know if I let it 'get to me' or not but I know there is nothing I can do to help them.
I am what you call "working poor". I am soon to be divorced, and I work two jobs but still struggle to take care of my family.
If I am ever able to I plan to help the poor in whatever way I can.

There is a family down my street who lost everything do to a flood. Their pipes burst and it ruined everything. I don't have much but am taking a few things to them today. I just wish I could do more for them.

 I do feel bad as well, I am a softie when it comes to things like that.

Sometimes I do feel compassion for people in tough situations. But then there are times that it makes me angry because of the way some people choose to write about their situations. Its almost as if they are begging for handouts. They seem to be the people that truly have options but refuse to try to help themselves.
