Ex πŸ™„

October 27th, 2023 at 01:47 am

My ex recently called, but he didn't muster the courage  to request a loan. Instead, he went on about needing $300-$400 for a home repair. If he ever decides to ask, my answer is a firm "no."

Since our breakup, it's clear that he hasn't been able to improve his financial situation, and I'm skeptical he ever will. It's unfortunate because he's a genuinely kind and caring man, but it seems he's unwilling to pull things together.

On a different note, I participated in an interview discussing the challenges of repaying student loans. I'm eager to read the article about it.

    I am proud of you for standing strong.

    There are times when someone’s circumstances make it so that helping them with money is a reasonable decision - usually when unforeseen disaster affects them.

    But bailing people out of their bad decisions with money when they are unwilling to learn the lessons that would prevent the problem is not helpful to either side.

    I’m glad you see the difference.

    Good work on not being tempted to loan or give him money.

    People can be nice, but still not be smart about how finance works. Sometimes the nice ones are the hardest to say no to.
