I was standing beside the ATM when my phone rang. It was from a Secondary School Friend whom I met during my Army Remedial Training 2.5 years ago. He subsequently became my client by taking up a Shield Plan from me.
He is self employed and I know that his business is not doing that well. He asked for $1,000 and I eventually lend him $500 with a lot of reluctance. I seriously doubt I will get back this money after talking to one of his good friend. He called me because of desperation and he already owned a lot of people money.
I felt so sad that I lent people money again. Everytime they will say its urgent. Everytime they will say I will pay back next month. Everytime they will say no money when I called to ask it. I currently have ~$2k of uncollected debts and some of them are already Uncontactable.
I have a big problem of not knowing how to reject people. I don't know why people will always look for me when they need money. I probably gave the impression to them that I very successful in my career.
