Hello! Do you have friends who like to borrow your personal items? what is your opinion about such habits? I don't too like if someone borrow my personal items, for example, my books collections, I look after them carefully, and I will feel very sad if someone borrow them and read them with careless. The problem, that I feel not nice to deny them who want to borrow something from me. Do you ever have similar situation? what do you do, then? Thanks for sharing. You all have a great day. Best wishes,

sorry but i really dont lend any of my personal things. when things are that important to me then i will just say no. its better for me to say no than be sorry that someone lost it or someone broke it. i have such personal things that i even purchased at ebay for it is hard to find items. if they dont understand if i dont lend it its okay for me but that is how i am they just have to understand that. my brother always borrows personal things from me and i know he always lost his own things so i dont lend him anything taht for me is personal.

Hi, thanks for sharing. I think you are right, we must say 'no' directly if we feel things are so important for us. You look very firm, and I think I must learn from you when I face such situation in the next time. Again, thanks a lot for your response. It is very positive for me. Have a nice day. Best wishes,

hello atleya, When it comes to personal things,i won't let anyone borrow it. That is why it is personal...and collections means something to the collector. So,i would directly say "no"...and in a nice way. I will not risks my collection...i earned it from hard way...and i can't imagine it being borrowed by anybody.

I hate to borrow things from others. The same way, I hate it when somebody ask me to borrow my things. My friend used to have a room mate who used to take her things withoug permission. Once she went to her parents' house and once she was back, she was shocked to find that her moisturizer, perfume, face crem, etc. were alomsot over. I hate it. I will never live with a roommate like that.
