If you were me, would you pay the money back to my family? Watch

    Hi.

    A few years ago I got a full scholarship and I was supposed to study abroad but my family forced me to decline the scholarship. I was broken and really depressed. My sisters promised to help me pay for my studies if I decided to study in my hometown. If you agreed to take the money and study in your hometown, would you pay it back in the future?

    Honestly I don't feel very sorry for my sisters because they hurt me so much and I don't think I can ever forgive them for the psychological damage they caused me even if they pay me millions. I wish I could never see my family again, but regardless of what they did to me, do you think the money should be paid back to them? They gave me like £ 20k

    This comment wasn't necessary.

    OP, ask your family if they offered you the money on the basis of you someday paying it back - only they will know.
