Friendship Over Money?

How can money ruin a friendship? I would never forget the time I borrowed money to a close friend. I was in a hospital that time, and I needed additional amount so I could go out. My mom promised to help me then but she had something to do that she couldnt send me money. So that was the reason why I borrowed money. I said I would return after a day but because of some explainable circumstances I wasn't able to do so. I asked her If she could wait for another day,because I have no money yet.(well, I have a word of honor and she knew it)I didn't expect my mom couldn't send the money immediately. But she replied to me, with all those hurtful words, I didn't expect to come from her.Because of that, I asked my mom in law to find ways on how we could return her money. I had the amount then and I sent her message , If I could just send it via money transfer because I was still feeling dizzy.(I gave birth that time)But she again sent me message that I had never heard from my other friends.As if I borrowed millions from her. She said I should return the money in person...so even if I was not yet healed , (with stitches and all that) I met her. I cried....and realized she wasn't a friend. Would you do the same thing to a "friend"?

Sadly, most people would show their true color over money. In which case the friend you have is not a very good friend because her priority is money over friends. I'm not saying that we should accomodate our friends all the time because the truth is there are also "friends" out there who abuse the "friendship". But if there is love and trust in a relationship, whether it's friendship or even within families things like this should not happen.

yeah, right! She was one of a kind. I mus admit that she was nice. But when she did that to me, I was so frustrated and felt so low. Since then, I just learned that it is better to get a loan from an institution rather than a person...at least , no hurt feelings!

Very sad story :( I cant believe she did that to you :( I would never do this to a friend, and friendship is indeed over money, becouse money is the root of all evil. Real happiness is having a great family, friends and everything you need. Also safety ;)

me,too. I have never done that to my friend. I wasnt like her. After that, she realized that she hurt me and so, she sent me message and said she was sorry.Well, that was too late. i can forgive her but will never forget.

Sometimes people are so insensitive to our needs. They are inconsiderate most of the time. That's fine, at least you've known her true colors.

i will just slap such friend.such people are a stink to friendship.friendsihp is world's most beautiful relation and it requires sacrifices.a person not able to bear such hardships,should never make friends.he not only degrades himself but also break someone's heart.i think such friends should be out of our friends.

I'm so sorry that happened to you. Well, if she's a real friend, she would have understood your situation. It's just a matter of few days that you weren't able to give her money back and you already explained to her the reason. She should have given you a little consideration specially you just got out of the hospital. But well, at least, you now know her true colors.

My dad always says, if you want to keep a friend don't lend them money. I lent money to a friend and never got it back. He is no longer my friend.

At least you know her true color this early. I hope you can find a real friend that would be there for better or for good. Me, I was most likely on the other side of the story. I was being victimized because I would always give whenever I can and this is most of the time abused by some of my so-called friends. Now, I prefer to be alone rather than continuously being victimized by persons who would like to take advantage of other people for their own welfare.
