If you enter into some kind of monetary or debt relationship with each other, this breaks the connection between you and puts it on a material basis. You stop being friends.
My Response: Other relationships immediately cut in, like it or not.
Question: With your closest friend and even a relative?
Answer: It doesn’t matter with whom.
Question: Do you think it is better to take a loan from the outside, a bank or somewhere, than from someone close?
Answer: A friend is to love, and a bank is to borrow and return.
Question: Why is this?
Answer: Because these are two different levels of communication. And they cannot exist at the same time.
Question: That is, a friend is just in order to love?
Question: Otherwise, what kind of communication is it? “Borrow money from me, for love, after all, you and I are so close.”
Answer: There is no love here. There is some benefit here. But this is not love.
Question: Do I somehow use our friendship this way?
Answer: Of course. It is uncomfortable for him to refuse, and so on. No, you can’t do that.
