Trust your gut if it’s telling you to say no

  • Lending money is nearly always a bad idea. Anytime you can say no, do so. Even if the person pays you back, you've opened a door that will never close again. You become the bank—it changes how your relative looks at you and how you look at them.
  • The experts agree that there are two cases in which you should refuse: if you simply can't afford it, or if the person has a history of borrowing from you or others and not repaying.
  • You probably won't feel awesome after refusing the loan. Own those feelings. Then tell them, 'For me, right now, this is the best decision.'
