A Heart-Wrenching Dilemma: To Help or Not to Help?

After enduring a childhood of neglect, our protagonist (let's call her 'The Survivor') found herself in a unique predicament. Her parents, who had largely abandoned their parental duties, were now homeless and seeking her help. Despite the emotional turmoil, she had managed to build a successful life for herself and her siblings. But when asked to extend her generosity to her parents, she refused, sparking a family feud. Her husband suggested offering a 'symbolic amount' to ease her conscience, but The Survivor remains firm in her decision. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...🤔
