How far can you help your friend?

I know people always say that "when a friend needs help, you do your best." But the real question I am asking here is how far can you help your friend? I understood that everyone has a limit, even for best friend too. How far will you try to bail your friend out? What is the bottom line? Enough to not involve you in trouble? Or less, or more?

I would help them as far as they want me to help them and sometimes most of my friends just want a company but does not really need my help but there are those who really are in need and yes I helped them out but if some of them would say that they can manage it by themselves then I would respect there decisions on that matter specially when it involves family conflict. Well it would really all depend on our friends on how far they want to be helped....... dont you think?

I love my friend who are true to me. I will help her until she'll say that she's fine and I can go on.

i think i am the person who helps my friends no matter what it takes. up to the extent that i bring them back to sanity lol. knock their heads for them to think properly. i became already a sister, a brother, a mom, a dad, a nanny and a guidance councelor. but i cannot be their bank for i am sure i dont have anything to give them. lol.

i'm not sure about that because i haven't been tested with a really big situation yet but i'm pretty much sure i'm the type of friend who tries to help as much as possible. i don't want to make my friends feel that i don't care about them and i don't want to leave them just when they need me the most. i want to be there when my friends are happy and especially when they're down.

hmmm that is a good question, I am always bailing my friends out but I have always thought that is what friends do and I have always be thankful that my parents gave me good groundings and that I am able to think things out and go forth and help my friends but when you think about it i guess there must be a limit there somewhere,.
