Roy Murray asked 5 months ago
I have this friend who always borrows money from me, and I'm starting to get really frustrated. I don't mind helping her out every once in a while, but it's getting to the point where she's asking for money all the time. I don't know how to say no without hurting her feelings.

Oh, yes, if there is money involved, it can be difficult to handle the situation. You want to help your friend, but you also don't want to be taken advantage of. The best thing you can do is talk to her about it. Explain that you're happy to help her out, but you can't keep lending her money all the time. Perhaps you could offer to help her budget or find other ways to get the money she needs. Whatever you do, just be honest and firm - she'll respect you for it in the long run.
