When Do You Give Up On Someone?
September 23, 2017 8:41am CST
As a recovering Compulsive Gambler I know that there comes a tome when you give up on helping someone. My question is when would you give up on a person? Here are three different relationships to consider. 1. A spouse, child or other family member. 2. A close friend. 3, A person who asked for help in one of the groups you are a part of. How long do you provide support for any person when they keep going back? How long do you hold out hope? I ask these questions to get some impartial input. Later today I will write my answer to the question and see what people think of it.

I never want to give up on my child. But I can give up on all others. If I now a friend is with an abuser and won't leave. I won't help her. In this day and age with domestic shelters, I would leave that person alone. I would leave a family member too if they would except such behavior. but my child i have to hold out as much hope as possible.
