borrowing money from friends

Popularity 3Viewed 705 times 2016-3-24 21:27 |Personal category:life|System category:Life| friends, money

   when it comes to money,  it is sometimes said that borrowing money from a friend can harm the friendship。do you agree with that?

  taking my experience for instance,when my friend asks me for money,it is very difficult for me to say “no”,after all the friendship between us is more “expensive”。on the one hand,i often say “yes” in order to save face。on the other hand,its also awkward for me to set a deadline for repayment after lending him or her money。but when the money is too much for me to afford ,i have to refuse him or her。will i put him or her in an comfortable position?

The final answer to this is do not lend money to friends or relatives. However, sometimes it is necessary and a good thing to do so. BUT with honesty and trust. Why do they need the money? How will it be repaid?     Honesty about your own ability to lend it. If the answers are not satisfactory, then say that you have not got it or an honest answer about your thoughts about it. True friends will not think less of you. And remember that if they betray your trust, never lend them anything again.

If one does not let "face" to come into the decision process, one will be more likely to make the right choice.

A friend in need is a friend indeed.
