How do you help someone without letting them take advantage of you?

BROOKLYN WRITES: I have a friend who never talks to me anymore unless she needs something. Whenever I reach out to her, she ignores me and only contacts me when she needs to borrow clothes or a movie. She’s in a tough spot in her life right now, and I want to help her and show Christ’s love, but I feel that she’s taking advantage of my kindness.

My mom even told me to be careful because this friend seems to be walking all over me. I want to help my friend, really, but at the same time I don’t want to come across as someone that can be taken advantage of. So how do I balance this?
