Ill conceived ideas go hand and hand with unintended consequences.

Those who borrow trouble, as opposed to lending it, likely offer it freely.

Don't lend trouble for neighbors cause when they return it to you, you got a double, triple or more multiple dose of trouble. And even if that's your nature it might be too much to bear.

Who wants trouble--yet that is all we seem to be deeply involved in.

A person with an immature disturbed spirit, that nurture to be an abhorrence to the neighbors - is like a poor soul lost in himself, screaming in agony, trying to be something meaningful in his decayed subjectiveness, unfortunately happening to be an unwelcome and a burden to any individual around.

If you bring trouble on on yourself, don't bring it to others

More for borrow trouble by Henry Ward Beecher

When we borrow trouble, and look forward into the future and see what storms are coming, and distress ourselves before they come, as to how we shall avert them if they ever do come, we lose our proper trustfulness in God. When we torment ourselves with imaginary dangers, or trials, or reverses, we have already parted with that perfect love which casteth out fear.

Why lend your borrowed trouble to your neighbors when you can gift it to them, by hook or by crook?
