Would you help out a friend/family member if you thought you might be enabling them?
Let’s say you have the following hypothetical situation: An old friend or non-immediate family member (cousin, aunt, uncle) calls you up and says they got fired unexpectedly for reasons that sound like their fault and can’t make rent 2 days from now. They ask to borrow rent money from you.
Let’s add in that this person had a drug problem many years ago, but as far as you know, that is all in the past.
Would you give them the money?
