But those points you listed are very valid.
My friend Dean got beat up, peed on, and then set on fire.
The types of people you work with on a day to day basis, most won't talk to you if you end up homeless.
Also, find the line between pride and dignity.
One guy I know was awoken from his sleep by his companions, who were kicking him and beating him with all sorts of things. They tried to kill him for his stuff. They beat him until they thought he was dead and then they put him on train tracks. He spent a half a year in the hospital and has the most deformed abdomen I have ever seen.
He is beyond lucky to have survived.
