I AM AT MY WITS END. I HAVE A CFM(CLOSE FAMILY MEMBER) WHO CONTINUES TO ASK FOR THE SAME THING OVER AND JUST REFUSES TO HELP HERSELF. SHE WILL ASK AS IF WAITING FOR ANYONE TO SAY ILL DO IT FOR YOU. THAT ISNT HELPING HER GET THE JOB DONE FOR HERSELF. I HAVE DONE MY BEST TO GIVE HER ADVICE WHEN SHE ASKS. BUT SHE HAS YET TO FOLLOW ONE SUGGESTION. YET SHE STILL ASKS THE SAME THING. I HAVE ASSISTED HER IN THE PAST BUT SHE HAS AIWAYS NEVER COMPLETED HER PART OF HE DEAL. SO I FEEL AS IF I SHOULD BE DONE WITH IT. I HAVENT DONE ANYTHING LATELY EXCEPT TO ENCOURAGE HER TO HELP HERSELF. THAT IS WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE, I AM SURE. BUT NO MOVEMENT IN THAT DIRECTION ON HER PART. ANY SUGGESTIONS?Answer Question

I would stop doing anything for her. Doesn't seem to be working. Let her live and learn, on her own.

What is she asking for? My sis is like this and it drives me crazy and my mom believe everything she's says which makes it worse, she is always asking for money or help paying for things and when that doesn't work she comes up with a sob story so people will just feel bad for her, its gotten so bad that she will say things like "I don't wanna live anymore" just to get pity and make ppl feel bad, she wont work because to her nothing is good enough and when it is she can't do it because he bf wont let her. so I just don't do anything for her anymore she can do it on her own and when she gets in her poor me's I just ignore it because its just to get what she wants
