How important the money to us.

years ago,one of my friend asded me to lend her lots of money,i did,but untill now,she haven't paid me the money she owe me.I'm disappointed.I think ,maybe it worth,this thing let me know how weakly our friendship is,the money can be maked but the friendship can't move on.Our relation with others often becomes clearly defined when money enters the picture.you might have wonderful friendship with somebody and you think that you are very good friends.But you will know him only when you ask him to lend you some money or you lend some money to him.sometimes ,it brings something to tbe relationship that seems stronger than ever before,but contrarily,it can suddenly weaken the relationship.this is the real world.People just have the idea of making more and more money,but what is it for?i can save a friend ship,but it can broke a friendship too.so i don't expect she will pay me the money , a clearly understanding of a friendship is more important.

I learned many years ago not to lend money to friends or family unless you expect (or know) that you are giving it away, because friends and family tend to use the relationship to the fullest by not repaying the loan or taking their sweet time to repay. I once let a close friend borrow $400 from an insurance settlement i received with the agreement that I would be paid back when their tax refund came. What a joke, that was nearly 20 years ago and I never received a dime back. Needless to say, with my friendship stretched to its limit, I decided after I ran into a situationw where I needed the money paid back (10 years later) and they simply refused to offer me a dime! I was unemployed at the time and was faced with eviction...they didn't care at all! Not a close friend anymore and I never mix money with friends and family.

I am sorry to hear that ,the person who borrow your money is so bad.this kind of person is not worth your sad or despair.you can level an accusation against him.but not everyone like this.if you are luck you will meet a ture friend when you are in difficult ,he will give you a hand.good luck to you.

u r definately true.many itmes it has happened to me.i feel veery shy in asking money back.a true frnd will have clear understanding bout tihs.if he ask for money he will also make sure that when he has the amt he will return it to u.however many people say they r their ur frnd bt once they have taken money they just forget frndship.money is important bt not at the cost of frndship.however it depends whether frnds r true or not

I would rATE 101% You really are a true friend.... Keep it up... Many a people tend to become loose when money comes in....That's why it's truely said:" MONEY is the ROOT of all EVILS". People grows greedy, forgetting to understand what a relationship truely matters. But these greedy people ends up in trouble always.... They never will be satisfied in life and will live in fears....

yes..it's true..some people give priority to money rather than relationships.but there is nothing to disappoint.all people can't have same attitude.it's good to know one's nature by spending some money rather than trusting them longer without any base.i wish you get less number of these kind of people.
