I know I’m not the only one who feels this way.. am I?
For some reason I have a huge problem loaning people money and I simply refuse to do it.
This is my thought process on the matter, I figure how can a person learn from their financial mistakes or misfortune if you’re there to save them in the last minute!
The lesson is learned via struggle not success, in my opinion.
Nope, Nope, Nope.. You can’t get a single penny out of me in the form of a loan
Now.. I might give you money, if I have it, but that has literally never happened.
Most people don’t want to have an hour long financial talk with me to figure out why they’re in this financial position and to figure out a long term solution.
I see it like this… Would you give an alcoholic a shot of gin? No? Then why would you give someone who has money problems a loan?
Yes, I know… all situations are different, but I’ve yet to find that unique circumstance that would make me feel better about loaning money.
It’s as if, I’m subsidizing their life and co-signing their lack of financial savvy by giving them a last second loan.. I can’t stand for that.
Anyone else feel this way?
