I do work for my friends for free. I make a living off of clients. There is a huge difference between friends and clients.
Money wont buy a true friend.
You sir, are a good friend.

Cash in the Karma bank. What comes around goes around. Never loan money to friend or family that you cannot afford to not get back.

You are a good man Big J with obviously a big heart. It's hard for broke folks like myself to figure out how you let 20k go up in the air to ANYONE. I realize there are probably special circumstances to your story as there always is but the friend situation should go both ways. It seems like from just a brief description that the true friend actions are heavily weighed on 1 side. That would be you. If it were you that owed him money I would bet you would find a way to re pay your debt to your best friend by any means necessary.

You did a great thing....AND it was your decision, so own it and don't let anyone make you feel bad about doing it.

it sounds like the guy came upon hard times and as you stated , by no fault of his own.

You may be surprised if it happens, but maybe one day he'll pay you back . That is if he ever gets back on his feet.

If not, then maybe YOUR example will have a positive karma on someone else.....

And if it's any consolation to you....as for human beings, YOU are in the upper crust.

This is a question I have been asking myself for several weeks.
I mean if you could put a dollar amount on it?

I have had this issue facing me for the last few weeks.

I have a dear friend that owes me a substantial amount of money for work I have done for him and thru no fault of his own things have turned south for him in several random acts that I know was beyond his control. Now I love this guy dearly and we have been friends for almost 20 years. One of my best friends.

Tonight I had a conversation with him and wiped the slate clean.
I feel a ton better and I hope he does as well.

So I ask what is friendship worth?

Money is such a materialistic item. I mean yeah I would love to have a bunch of it and especially right now considering I was down to little the last few days!! lol

To put some perspective on it. The actual amount I wrote off today to help my friend was

$20,000

Yes i said twenty thousand dollars.

Yes he is still one of my best friend and I think if it had been 100k. I would have felt the same.

I hope it never comes up again and I pray it gives us both restful peace in our relationship.

Just thought I would share.


And your motivation for posting this is what???
