The best thing about treating neighbours well is that we can depend on them at times of need or an emergency, like we have neighbours who often share food, water plants when one family is out of station, keep on eye on kids when they go out for tutions and sports classes etc.
When it comes to money we have to be careful as money always is the root cause to sours relationships. In emergency circumstances like an urgent hospitalisation or illness we can certainly lend money but it should not be a regular habit.
The downside is there are people who would take advantage of our good gestures and often burden us with repetitive requests, regularly leaving their small children at our homes and they themselves go for shopping etc and lastly use our goodwill as emotional blackmail.
"Do not give up, things might not favour you always"
But the main thing we should never give upour relatives.

Even this challenging situation would ease
We never know when we might need help. Sometimes neighbours prove to be better than relatives.
Imagine you ordered something online. Your neighbour can take care of the payment and secure your good until you're at work.
But make sure you keep few things personal from them. You definitely don't want others poking into your family affairs .
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
