Are you willing to support your bestfriend financially since she has no work?

My cousin is supporting her bestfriend financially. Because her bestfriend lost her job. She is doing it for few months now and never really complain at all. I admire how she loves her bestfriend. Not only in of good times but in bad times as well. Will you do the same thing?

There was I time when I did support my best friend. I would dish out money when he didn't have any so he could pay for some meals and other things. I never asked for anything in return except for a little gratitude. Now, I'm regretting doing it because he's ungrateful. There was a time he borrowed money from me when times were hard. He never paid me back when he had his own money again. Maybe next time, I would allow my friends to borrow money from me but not to support then financially for free.

Absolutely not. Why? Well if you support some people long enough, instead of actually treating you like a friend and support system, they're just going to see you as a free ride. One that just is around to give them money so they don't have to work. And because you're giving them money, you'll never get paid back because they're not going to work. I understand that it makes you feel bad when your friends get into bad situations but supporting them financially completely is just a really bad idea. You'll end up getting into a bad situation that you hadn't planned on and will probably ruin the friendship in the end.

Helping out is a good deed. But you are right, there should be a limit.

For me, i'll help my bestfriend too but not that long. Because i think her bestfriend is abusing her. Helping her best friend is not bad. It's a way to show that for better or for worst you're there for her every time. But i think, supporting her bestfriend for months???wow!!!I salute your cousin for doing that. I think her best friend should also find ways to support her self. She should not let her besfriend will support her all the time. There's no wrong to hewlp other people but sometimes other people abuse the good things you've done for them... happy mylotters!

There is nothing wrong in helping indeed. Especially with a bestfriend.

[i]Hi iza, wow..that is very cool! ANyway, when I have extra income I will do it but I haven't tried really! When I was single, have a stable job, I was the breadwinner in the family and all of my friends know that! MY best friend has a wonderful job too! But, we always borrow cash from each other from time to time![/i]
