Hey people! Its been a very busy week mehn, i saw it coming anyways but i have missed sweetiliving. The good thing about being so busy is that the day ends very fast and right now, i have so many things in my head right now and i don't know how to start.
So yes, i had a talk with a friend about lending money to people, i think it is a good thing to help people in times of need. I have had experiences in the past relating to this issue and i think it is time be wise.
My personal opinion is that you should not lend somebody an amount you cannot part with, i stand to be corrected though, its just my opinion. But really, what can you do if the person doesn't pay back? Nothing! We all know that people can be very funny because it is at the time when they have promised to pay back that your calls will be avoided and your text messages won't be acknowledged and to top it, they give you an attitude. Courtesy here should imply that you should at least inform the good samaritan if repayment will be delayed.
Infact, i try not to lend money to people who i won't be able to ask when it falls due! yes o, i can't shout.
I would advise that we use our discretion because some people would just want to take advantage of you and play emotional which a lot of people fall for including me.
Anf if u really must help, make sure its an amount you can part with so you heart won't be broken. (Its just in case)
