The only time I hear from my family is when they need money..No one ever writes to ask how I am or if I need anything.. Everything is quiet till they have used up their money and they remember me working over here.. One of my siblings told me their phones are turned off and that they wanted help..Never do they write otherwise.. What would you do.. would you be the bank where everyone can get the money they want?

I would not be the bank. If I were you, I would put a stop to this and explain that you will no longer be their bank and I would tell them how it's nice that they don't write to ask how you are but only call when they need something.

It's not just the bank..but sometimes they will tell you all that other people give them..as to make me look bad if I don't do the same..I just don't believe love can be measure by the amount of gifts you give or the money you have;)+

I think that is horrible that you only hear from your family when they need money. I think that is terrible of them to do that to you and would not answer their calls or letters. They are just using you and do not seem to care about you. I would not help them if they needed money in this case or not until they show you some respect and love and start treating you like you are a part of the family.

it is really sad. I do not know what would I do... If I had money I would give, I think. What is it good for if you only hold it on the bankaccount. Help, if you are asked to help. Help, if you can. Do not be selfish. But do not help if you have a little money too. Though, you should think about what is the problem with you. Are you kind enough?
