Why am I feeling resentment over this?!

Seriously, this is so dumb, and I dont get why I feel this way...but anyway my friend told me last night their bank acount got scammed 400 bux and our bank (We use the same bank) wont return the money for 4-6 weeks. Her husband is a rank lower than mine and I know how tight finances are where we live for MY family, I cant imagine trying to do it on their paycheck. Anyway so I offered her my heros at home gift card and a 100 dollars for christmas...

Soooooooooooooo why am I feeling upset about this?! I know its the right thing to do and I WANT to do it...what is wrong with me?! LOL

  • I haven't told my friend how I feel, she feels bad enough since that was their christmas money. I haven't told anyone how I feel until just now. I also didnt know I would feel this way. I guess its just because we have our own finacial problems as well, I probably shouldn't have given her the money but every kid diserves a christmas.

  • I wouldn't say it out loud to her... I was not bashing you by the way, it was an honest question. I think you did the right thing to help her, and I guess just look at it like you gave them a gift from your heart that no one else offered... ? :0) She probably appreciates your effort more than she can show.

  • I know you weren't. Just trying to give you more insight. She did seem very very very appriciative last night on facebook chat. I guess I just need to get my head out of my butt and get over it. I know my family is better off than hers, and when we go home for christmas I know we will be taken care of. We will survive. I think I just feel this way b/c my husband has been on my case about money lately.

  • Maybe you did it because you felt you should not out of the goodness of your heart.

  • No I really did do it out of the kindness of my heart, really I truly did. I am just chalking this up to its because my husband has been on my case about our own finaces lately, even though we arent even half as bad off of as they are.
