Roy Murray asked 2 months ago

I have a friend who is always asking to borrow money from me and it's really starting to get on my nerves. She never seems to have any money of her own and she's always asking me for loans. I don't mind helping her out every once in a while, but it feels like she's taking advantage of me. I'm not sure how to tell her to stop without hurting her feelings.

It sounds like your friend is in a tough situation. It can be really hard to say no to someone who's always asking for money, especially if you're worried about hurting their feelings. However, it's important to set boundaries with your friend. You can't keep lending her money if it's putting you in a difficult financial situation.

There are a few things you can do to deal with this situation. First, you could try talking to your friend about it. Explain that you're not comfortable lending her money all the time and see if she's open to finding other ways to help her out. If she's not willing to talk about it, you may need to distance yourself from her for a while. Let her know that you're not going to lend her any more money and see how she reacts. If she's understanding, then you can continue being friends. However, if she gets angry or doesn't want to talk to you anymore, it's probably not worth keeping her in your life.
