James has lived on the streets for more than a decade.
He allowed ITV Cymru Wales to film with him as part of our week-long special coverage on homelessness.
James found himself without a roof over his head 12 years ago after his relationship with his family broke down. His home is now a tent in Bute Park, Cardiff.
He says it still hurts when strangers judge him without knowing anything about him or his situation.
Without a family to fall back on, James has formed friendships within the homeless community.
He often catches up with fellow rough sleepers when they queue up to receive a hot drink and some food from local charities.
But tragically, over the years, he has also seen many of his friends die on the streets.
Cardiff is renowned for being a vibrant, friendly city.
But when darkness falls, James says the streets can be a frightening place for the homeless and vulnerable.
Sometimes he is too scared to go to sleep at night.
