projecting or protecting?

Rabbi, I know I have a hardened heart. I enjoy giving, but don't see the "poor" around me as being worthy of handouts. I've seen too many poor who are lazy, wasteful, and are get things I don't indulge in myself. I'm afraid that I pass up helping many people because I don't trust anymore. I'd love to know my giving was benefitting someone, and am often holding out. I don't want to be stingy. I know HaShem is gracious to all. Should I just give without concerning myself with how it's He does? Maybe I just answered my own question?
