some people tend to hold the view that borrowing money from a friend may do some harm to the friendship while others do not beliea it. As for me ,I think under different circumstances there will be different results.
A friendship can be greatly hurt ,more seriously, broken down if the one who borrows the money breaks his or her promise not willing to pay back the money . there indeed exists a type of people who harness the trust from their friend to collect some money with the purpose of not returning it .personally, I think it is not worth establishing true friendship with this type of people because of their questionable motivation. And also, it is not probable for them to make indeed friends as the time gose by, for the friends around will definitely departure them while their quality is being exposed gradually. in this situation, borrowing money is simply the stimulus of the deterioration of the friendship. Things are sometimes different. friendship can be accumulated continously through transmission of the money between tow friends.Just imagine how grateful will the one feel towards the friends who helpd him or her out.
everyone will encounter difficulty and turning to friends for help is just where the truth of the friendship lies. A good illustration is in my deep memory. It was a friend of mine with not much contact gave me a hand when once I was extremely short of money and even could not stick out. I can claim that he is my truest friend though he maybe was not my best friend then. only in this way can the friendship be developed steadily.
From what has been discussed above we can safely come to an conlusion that whether borrowing money will exert a adverse influence on the friendship depends on the internal chracteristics of the one who involves in the borrowing. A friend in need is a friend indeed, keep it in mind!
