a friend owes me about $500. he talks about it constantly too-- telling me that he'll pay me as soon as he can, etc.
i'm not stressed about it. if he feels obligated to pay me, then pay. if not, then dont. when i gave the money up, i gave it with no strings attached- not expecting money back in return.
but he KEEPS talking about it, telling me that he feels bad that he owes me money, that he'll pay me soon, etc... but at the same time, he's putting $150/week away in his savings.
i tell him, dont worry about it. i dont care for the money- just focus on yourself... but right now, i'm getting frustrated with him bringing it up, even after i tell him not to worry about it.
he hasnt paid me anything since the beginning of Dec (again- i dont care about the money, but if he feels he's in debt to me, i wont turn it away)... i dont ask him for the money-- and i tell him to NOT worry about it.
how else can i tell him to not stress on it? i mean, if he feels obligated to pay, or wants to pay- then do so whenever he can. dont constantly bring it up cuz its never in my mind like that. when he does bring it up, i get a little flustered b/c he'll say that he's saving and in my mind, i think 'if you really cared, you'd put at least $50 in for me, to repay me'.... but any other time, it doesnt matter to me.
(only reason i bring it up now, is b/c he texted me saying that he feels bad about how much he owes me)
