Is there a line between being selfless (not selfish) and being taken advantage of? For example, someone asked me for money a little while back and I knew that the reason they didn't have money was because they kept buying expensive jewelry and the next latest phones and so on... To be honest, its so much easier to give to someone that is just simply struggling for money rather than spending it unwisely. Another example is, someone I knew would always ask me for car rides when I live at least 30 minutes away from them. I did for a while then I started to wonder if I was just being taken advantage of or being selfless and helping people. Please don't misunderstand why I wrote this. It wasn't to complain or gossip but to get some opinions on this. Is there a point where you can say no to somebody but still feel like you did the right thing by it? This verse comes to mind when I think of this. vvvvvvvv
