Friends, I had a Friend Like a Brother. we both studied in a same school & joined different companies to work. Once he had a financial Problem & I helped Him when he asked my help. His problem was solved & he returned only half amount after few days & said he will pay another half in next few days. I did n't asked him the money. but, he is unable to pay the money due to his problems & he's too shy to show his face to me. he is not even talking to me on the Phone. What was my mistake ? I dont need money, I need his friendship. But, now he hiding from me.I cant even share this with someone. Beacuse, I dont want to reveal his problems to someone. Please tell shouls i do now?

No money dont affect on real friendship I think but In your case it happends I think U have to talk to him clearly about u dont need money and ask your friend dont worry whenever u got enough money then give me back otherwise dont need to shy to take tension or hide from me

first thing you will do is you will make a letter to him, i am very sure he will read it. tell him that he should not be ashame if he cannot pay his debts. Tell him that your friendship is more important than the money. Tell him that friends should never be separated by anyone by anything. Tell him also that you love him. Plead to him that he should talk to after reading your letter. tell him that you miss him hanging out there. tell anything that way he will not be ashame because of his debt.

Money matters will only break a friendship if you both let it. Just be honest with him and tell him it isn't the money that matters to you but his friendship. Or maybe to make him feel better, set up a schedule of say five bucks a week or something till it's paid off so he can save face. Good luck. Good friends are hard to find and it's worth the effort to keep them once you do.
