I would say that I was quite a proud person. I don't like to ask for help, unless I need it. Or should I say that I don't like to take offered help, unless I am to the point where I need to take the help that is on offer. I am this way especially when it comes to money. I am not sure why. But even so, rather than taking out a loan I would rather borrow the money from family members instead. I am less likely to have to pay interest if I borrow money from a family member or a friend. A loan just seems too dire to me. But then if you borrow money from loved ones, you may have to deal with a strained relationship because that person is expecting their money back. What would you rather do? Borrow money from a family member or friend? Or take out a loan?
