Compassion for those who are overly needy. What about helping poor people who never seem to get help? Give them what they need not what they want—Set healthy boundaries—suck money and time dry. When they make stupid choices—they will—you don’t stop their consequences—you help when they are facing those consequences. When enough is enough?
