About a year ago I landed a great job in a field that I've been trying to get into. The problem is that most of my friends make much less than I do. Their jobs are near entry level and they don't make much more than minimum wage. Most of my friends also don't have much ambition to get careers and are satisfied with just "jobs". They of course want to make more, but are too ingrained in their current situations to work towards something better. I'm not looking down on them because they work hard. It's just they work hard for very little.
I like to think of myself as financially literate and good at managing my money, so a good portion goes into investing/saving. However, there is still a chunk that I'd like to use towards splurges such as vacation. Naturally it'd be nice to do these thing with friends. Sometimes I front the cost, but if I always did that it would become a burden financially.
I'm not sure how to reconcile the differences in lifestyle my friends and I are able to live. If I want to do something that would be expensive such as traveling abroad, how can I bring it up to my friends that aren't as well off as myself?
