Friendship is the name of sharing joy, sorrow, time and almost every event of life. Friendship is not to help each other but feel like the other. Is the same true when it comes to financial matters? Can friendship survive the monetary impact?
It is not that every time a friend borrows money from the other they break up, but it is because some of them develop borrowing as a habit. Some do it the other way. They lend their money to others and then borrow from others for their requirements.
When there is a real need, there are not many thatwould say no. Humanity is the name of emotional connections. Everyone is there to support. But when money is borrowed in the name of need but spend elsewhere then it becomes disheartening for the lender.
The next time he refuses to help even if there is a real need and even if he has ability to help his friend. Friendship starts ending here and the relations start getting weak, weaker and finally the weakest. Money has been known to spoil personal relations.
Everyone has its own requirements. Money has the valuethat can fulfil those. During student life there are lesser responsibilities so the friendship may go on however there have been instances where the college students have also got violent against each other for money.
A lot can be said about the importance of friendship and its role in making a man successful but when it comes to money, there have been instances when the best of friends broke up. Years of friendship ended over money.
There was written somewhere, “The one, who goes a borrowing, goes a sorrowing”. To borrow money for pleasure always ends in broken relations. The best way is to utilize the resources that are available rather than buying others by taking loans or borrowings.
Friendship is not partnership but about sharing emotions or a bond of emotions. With this basic concept it inspires the friends to stay connected with each other in the worst and the best of times. It is not bound by age, gender and financial status.
