I firmly believe that “friend in need is friend in deed”.Friends are important part of our lives. Friends make us laugh, cry and enjoy.However borrowing money from a friend is not good idea how close the friendshipmight seem to be. Friendship can be damaged if unable to return the money ontime, borrowed money in investing go wrong, and conflicts can occur by simplyborrowing. I strongly agree that borrowing money from a friend can damage thefriendship. I will demonstrate with reasons and examples in the followingparagraphs.
First, friendship can be damaged if unable to return theborrowed money on time. Everyone one has needs and expectations in life.Borrowed money can’t be given in time may cause problems and ruin relationsbetween friends. For incidence, once my friend borrowed money has to travel onemergency to go back home. She said she would return the money after fewmonths. But she never talked about the giving money back even months after.When I asked her after a year later, she was very upset and angry saying that Iremember I would give it to you and never did and eventually stopped talking tome. We lost our friendship.
Second, friendship can be damaged if borrowed money ininvesting goes wrong. In these days it is becoming quite common among friends.One friend borrows the money from the other and investing in business or otherestablishments. As long as the profit comes in there is good relation betweenfriends, but something goes wrong and unable to give back the money that isinvested, friendship can be estrange and can be harmed. For incidence, one ofmy friend borrowed money from the other friend, and started a business.Initially business was doing very good, she was able to return the money, butsome reason business was not doing good, unable to return the money now andthen. The lender friend was very angry and upset, they got into conflict andfriendship was damaged forever.
Third, friendship can be damaged for simply borrowing money.Friends do lend or borrow money occasionally with out thinking consequences.But simply borrowing money even some times still can ruin the friendship and agood friend can be lost forever. The lender might say that in the public I lendthe money when you needed it. The borrower doesn’t like saying publicly. Eventhough it is simple fact the borrower borrowed and the lender lend the money,announcing publicly borrower might feel embarrassed and friendship can beruined.
To conclude, friends are there to share, to help, to beloved, and to have fun. But it doesn’t mean that money can be given just forfriendship. Everyone work hard for money, every one want to be respected insociety. The reasons explained in above paragraphs can put friendship at stakeif borrowed money and damage the relation. If anyone wants the friendship to belasting longer, never borrow the money otherwise you might loose a very goodfriend in deed.
