Imagine being a 32-year-old widow with three young children, living in a small house that's too cramped for your family. Then, your friend Trish asks if she and her two kids can stay in your garage-turned-living-space because they have nowhere else to go. You agree, but remind her that you're planning on buying a new home soon. Fast forward to today, and you've just had an offer accepted on a house. But Trish is shocked and upset because she assumed she'd be moving with you. 😲 Now, she's accusing you of leaving her homeless. What would you do in this situation?
