Questa volta abbiamo cercato una domanda rivolta ai ragazzi.
I'm a 26 yr old American, moved out at 18 and have been doing well, living comfortably. By no means am I rich, but as a single dude, life is good.
My mom called a few months ago asking me for $1,000 dollars, promising to pay back whenever. I didn't mind, so i sent it over. It was only later on that I found out she was paying for some cosmetic surgery and had underestimated its cost…
She still hasn't paid me back, and I don't think she ever will. I got hit with a gut punch today when I found that she wasn't able to pay off a private lender for the place she was staying at. Basically someone bought her a little house and she was expected to pay him back through some sort of agreement. She didn't for whatever reason, and was forced to sell it to pay the guy back.
Now she's staying with a friend until she can qualify for a mortgage, while encouraging me to go with her on a family vacation. It's become clear to me that she's not financially responsible and doesn't have her priorities in place. It's only a matter of time before she asks me for more.
I don't care about the original $1000, and I don't plan on giving her anymore. But I love my mom. She raised my brother and I as a single mom working her ass off in some labor jobs so we could have a chance in the world. The thought of cutting her off breaks my heart. But I know it's not feasible for me to support her like this, but I'm worried she's going to end up homeless at some point. We live thousands of miles apart.
Basically wondering if anyone has come across a similar situation and how they handled it.
