I was walking home from work on a busy city street. I wasn’t looking forward to going home and my friends weren’t able to hang out with me. Then I walked past a homeless person that I hadn’t seen before . He was moving back and forth to keep warm and asking for change (零钱)very gently. He spoke so quietly that I could hardly hear him.
Something made me stop, turn around and walk up to him. At the same time, anxious thoughts appeared in my head like, “What do you think you’re doing? ” “You’re alone , it’s dark out and you’re a woman. ”
With these thoughts, I came up to him and asked him if he had had dinner yet and if he would like to join me at a nearby restaurant.★ He said he hadn’t eaten and he’d like to. So, he walked with me to the restaurant and held the door open for me as we entered. We had a good dinner and a pleasant conversation about everyday stuff like where we grew up and what kind of music we liked. During the whole time, I tried to say the right thing and give him the dignity everyone has. I didn’t want to show that I was better than anyone.
I was so grateful for this experience. It changed my life. It’ll make me think twice in the future before I complain about something I think I lack(缺乏).
