GIRL FEELS OUT OF PLACE WITH HER RICH FRIENDS, CAN’T AFFORD THINGS THEY WANT TO DO

How to not feel out of place when I’m with my rich friends

Advertisements

So I’m currently still schooling and I come from a low-mid income family. I’m kind of known to be relatively thrifty with my money among my friends. Ofc it’s not like I don’t spend la, I still spend on things if I need or rly want to

Anyway I’m doing this gift exchange thing in my friend grp so I asked my friend what she wanted and she wants this expensive watercolor set that is arnd $40.

Ngl it’s out of my budget and I think she knows so she said that she doesn’t mind sharing the cost. But then I feel bad cuz like if we were to share cost then it’s not truly a gift yk?

Then she said it’s ok like you said, it’s just sth she wants not need and she totally understands if I buy her sth else.

I feel like she has no ill intentions plus my friends often joke about how thrifty I am with my money but idk, everytime they say sth like this I get guilty like it’s my fault that I’m not as well off as them.

I just feel kinda out of place when I hang arnd them cuz they are more well off than me. Sometimes they wna go eat out at places that has food priced at $10+ or more and everytime I feel embarrassed to tell them “sorry I don’t have enough money, can we go eat somewhere else instead?”.

Then all of them will comply just bcuz I cannot afford the food. Makes me wna forget abt eating and go home 😭 Also since it’s after Os, a lot of my friends are talking about travelling and throwing super grand graduation parties or whatever.

I haven’t gone travelling in a very long while now and hearing them say all this rly worsens the “out of place” feeling HAHAHA

Idk what really is the point of this post. Ig I just got abit sad after the whole gift exchange thing so I came here to rant? HAHAHA maybe someone has advice for me as to how not to feel so sensitive or out of place whenever I hang out with my friends. If so pls tell me, ty I rly appreciate it
