Derek’s tweet made me kind of sad. Since when is being nice to your friends something to get pissed off about? It comes down to choices. Who you spend your time with, and who/what you spend your money on. I understand spender’s remorse, but it usually doesn’t involve blaming others for what you’ve spent your own money on.
Personally, I love treating out my friends or helping when I can, especially if they don’t have an income or are financially struggling. No one is forcing me to pay for them, nor is anyone coercing me to spend time with them. I just love my friends. And I’d hope they’d do the same for me if needed, with love, instead of broadcasting their disdain in spite via social media, and essentially comparing friends’s monetary worth.
Sorry if this is over the line, it just kind of struck a nerve.
