What do you owe someone?

I just got off the phone with a friend. She loaned out people money long ago and now they are doing better than her. They paid her back back, but never really helped her out or are offering to now. I also thought back to a thing I heard abut someone supporting a boyfriend through med school and being dumped. When he became a doctor, she sued him and won. Do you think you have to help out people who supported and/or helped you? Or do you think once you paid them back, you don't owe them again? I think there's a lot sides to it.

I dont know anybody some money but there are some people (some are friends and some are relatives) that owe me some money. my friend promised to pay me and issued me checks but didnt make it..but now she works overseas she said she is going to pay me, i dont pressure them to pay because i am hoping if they have money they would. so i am just waiting patiently. if i owe some people some money, i think it wouldnt end up the day i paid them. i would still be very greatful always.. my friends and relatives are really very greatful to what i did. they said i saved their lives..

I think if someone helped me out when times were tough I would help them out.When I am out if i see something someone wants and is a bargain or second hand but good,then I will buy it as present for my mate,and she does the same thing for me,She came round with a lovely little white jacket when she was out for me,friends like that are diamonds,I brought her diabetic chocolate from Boots the chemist but had to throw it away after watching a watchdog programme on Tv that said it only caused upset stomache I spent hours trying to find her to tell her to throw it away.luckily she got my message and it was already in the bin,sometimes it works and sometimes it does not,but my heart was in the right place.To get back to the original question no one should keep rubbing it in they helped you out,but if you can you should help them out if times get tough.I always say if they pay you back when able they can borrow again.
