Since I started my first job two years ago, I have been sending money to my mother who lives in another province. The problem is she now has a man in her life who lives with her. He doesn’t work and he drinks.

My mother doesn’t drink but she has a job where she works only twice a week. I want to continue to support her, but I have resented the past few payments I’ve made because it means my money is now also going towards feeding her man. I don’t want to stop supporting her so what should I do? ANONYMOUS
