The first few times I have been asked if I am really homeless, or a business owner, or whether or not anything I blog or post about is really true; I have to be honest with you, it irritated me. I saw a posting on my Facebook Page last week stating that they found me interesting, but doubt what I post is actually true. Again, I was annoyed, but after thinking about why someone would ask such a question, I realized that very statement, doubting that what I say or do could be false, is a huge compliment.
Think about it; what do I post about? I post about what I do on a personal and/or business level. I post about current events in the news pertaining to homelessness. I also post my Moochology; which as you may or may not know, is simply an expression of positivity. A literal reminder to all that you are capable, and that anything is possible.
Doubting what I say or do is a compliment because apparently what I am doing is so out of the ordinary, so impressive, so uncharted that it must be false – right? So now when others doubt me, it gives me an ego boost. When I post about how I landed 3 clients in a week, and you don’t believe me – thanks! When I post about how I will buy my mother a home and you don’t believe me – thanks! When I post about other homeless people being beaten to death by those who swore to protect us, or when I post about celebrities who were formerly homeless, or when I post about how I am helping others anyway I can – seriously, thank you.
I encourage you to continue to doubt me. I also encourage you to ask me anything in the world to help you better understand that who I am, and what I am, is genuine.
