Our friends are good people...they just make bad decisions, and then instead of taking responsibility for their actions and learning from their mistakes, they whine and complain about it and continue to act completely on impulse. The wife just got done complaining to me (AGAIN) that they have no money to pay bills...rent included...but yet, they always have TONS of alcohol and smokes and "toys". Not long ago they had to file bankruptcy and it seems like they are headed down the path to financial ruin again. I genuinely feel for them and hate to see them stressed, but I have no real sympathy when they put themselves into this position. Am I wrong to be unsympathetic? I cannot give them money to help, we squeak by monthly, but we go without extras when needed...and I wouldn't want to give handouts to someone that is not going to change their ways. Is that terrible of me? I love them to death, I am just at loss and am confused.
