I have a BIG problem!! I am the one and only person that I know to sabotage my own happiness. I let people walk all over me not intentionally and in turn I get hurt and it’s no-body’s fault but my own. I lend money out, and I need to learn to say no. Do you have a problem saying no to people?
My husband is always saying that I have a lot of bark at home but no bite with my friends or family. On a regular basis whether I am busy or can’t do something, I seem to always find ways to rearrange my time and schedule to help someone in need; in turn always get screwed over in the end.
Have you ever loaned someone money when you really don’t have enough to lend and are promised the money back in a speeding time and then either never get it back or there are 100 and 1 reasons that they just can’t get it back to you until next pay then you still don’t get it. Or they forget to pay you back? Who forgets to pay somebody back money? Makes no sense, but that is what happens to me. And I have no courage to ask for the money back, because in my mind they don’t need the extra stress on there shoulders of me asking for my money back. I just don’t want to cause anyone distress. Yet, it causes me all the stress in the world.
I am maternity leave right now, and anyone that has been on unemployment insurance know that you hardly make any money, so it’s harder budgeting and in turn extra money kicking around isn’t in the books. But I still seem to help people. And for every $20-$100 dollars that I’ve got floating around out there is another dollar that I would have to enjoy time with my children or buy the essentials of life.
Do you have anyone out there that owes you money? How would you resolve the situation without looking like you are broke and need the money back or making the borrower feel stressed about giving you the money back that they may not have? I need your help!
