Okay, here's the dilemma. Normally, I'm pretty easy going and willing to go with the flow just to keep the peace. But I am mad about something that happened at my church and I feel like being a jerk even though I know I shouldn't.
I am on the church council and there is a lady who ALWAYS gets everything she asks for no matter what. We have a benevolent fund for people in need and usually we use it to help people in our church , but sometimes we help people outside our church too.
A few months ago, I asked if we could send some money ($500) to my brother and his family to help them out because they lost a lot of things in their home to Hurricane Katrina. My request was denied. Now this lady is asking for money for someone she knows to put first , last and security deposit on an apartment she wants to rent.( ($1500) Had the council said yes to my request , I would probably vote yes on this. But because they said no, I am voting no. It just feels too much like this lady gets whatever she wants all the time.
I feel like a little kid for feeling this way , but it makes me mad.
