Once we accept that people will not do what we expect them to do life will become less disappointing.
Deciding to help someone whether it is financial or not is a choice. For example, you lend a friend a few hundred dollars with the agreement of them paying you back, but if they decide for some reason to not return the money you may have possibly ruined a friendship.
Never lend money that you expect to be returned or that will place you in a financial bind. Hence, people ask to borrow money because they don’t have it in the first place. Allow them to pay you back in small increments rather than asking for the entire amount returned since showing effort means so much.
Money is the root of all evil-and have ruined marriages just the same. Remember if you don’t have the funds to give keep it in your pockets!
