Convert bad news to good news.

I am a trained political analyst. I am also Political Science Ph.D. candidate conducting dissertation work on insurgencies, ethnic fracturing, and failed states. This follows the completion of my MA in Political Science where I conducted thesis research on the connections between ethnic fracturing and severity of an insurgency. In this time, I have presented a number of papers on related research and helped author an academic publication. Throughout my career, I have developed a number of skills, including open source Intelligence analysis, statistical analysis, political and conflict assessment, policy analysis, and research.

I hate lending money to friends. They almost never pay you back. I have been burned before so never again.

I have a threshold for lending people money. I usually don't lend more than EUR10.

If it's close family then I'd be willing to lend them. It's the least I can do to help them.

I would only lend them money if it is for life-related needs. Other than that, I won't.

When I was younger I was opposed to lending money to friends and family but now that I am older, I don't mind as much especially if they need it badly.

I will not like to lend money to anyone because it's hard to get back from both of them.

It depends on who's borrowing. Some of my family will never pay you back.

If it's a family member who needs the money, I give more than lending them.

I don't lend money anymore. I don't want them to get used to coming to me for money.

You have to take good care of the money you have earned too so you must make sure that if it's loan, it should be paid. Family or not, they should give it back no matter what.

That came strong for me since I cannot even ask my sister to pay her debts to me. Well, maybe because we have different upbringing and values as well as perspective in life.
