When does a moral obligation stop being an obligation?? I have always been the one to go to those in need and help out. Usually, I am called by them or another family member to do so. But, I have found that when the individual in need begins to take advantage of you both physically AND emotionally that you have to stop "helping".
Sparks has given me the mental and emotional strength to finally be able to stand up for myself and stop being a doormat! Moral obligation or not, the obligation stops when you are they begin taking advantage of you!!! Then, you should NOT feel any remorse, guilt or shame!! You have to answer to God for what you do (going to help in the first place) and they have to answer to God for what they do (taking advantage)!!!
Answer the call but, don't stay on the line too long!!
