Essay on Borrowing Money from a Friend
It is sometimes said that borrowing money from a friend can harm or damage the friendship.
Do you agree? Why or why not?
To have good friend is necessary in life. Borrowing money from friend could harm relationship. I believe that it could create negative impact on friendship.
Money and friendship are those two words that do not belong in the same sentence. If you're strapped for cash and thinking about asking a friend for money, decide what is needed more, money or friendship. For example, when I was in university, my friend asked me to pay his tuition fee. I paid that, and when I asked him to return it back, it wreaks havoc on our relation. In fact my intention was to help him when he need, but when time came to return that back, he took it to his self esteem. So, might be your way of perceiving relation is different from others.
Moreover, when you ask for favor, they ask that in return. This means that they will always gaze at you as the one they helped. And rather it would seem like they have owe you for long time. In addition, it might be that their response is not intentional. But either or way you will feel “being indebted” to someone.
Furthermore, taking money or giving loan, at the end it depends on how one perceives his relations. Not every one look at money the same way. To some, being asked for money is the same as being betrayed. It always takes relations to mistrust and destroyed the friendship.
Hence, I believe loaning between two people is always harmful. It is not good idea to borrow or lend money in relations. Until and unless there is understanding and bonding between two people.
