In “Life Quakes,” a viewer is struggling with a close friend who keeps borrowing money but doesn’t pay it back. She needs her money, but fears having that difficult conversation could hurt their friendship. Hosts Jessica Reyes, Patricia Wu, and guest therapist Yehudah Alcabes from Olive Branch Counseling offers guidance on setting boundaries and navigating this tricky issue.

Boundaries are important

Healthy friendships need boundaries. It’s okay to say “no” or to set conditions around lending money.

Plan your approach

Think about what you want out of this conversation and how you can communicate clearly and respectfully.

Empathy matters

Remember this is a friend you value. Frame the conversation as something that benefits both of you
