I am the poor relation
My recent years have hit me very hard financially and emotionally. Try holding it all together as much as I can, through having to leave a house behind and live in one temporary room... I've never been financially well off but now there is not a penny to spare, so no I can't join in the plans for travelling, even just visiting is hard because petrol costs too much. I can't go and do the things other people want to do ....
I can see the other side that it must be hard, making the effort to ask me if I want to go to something.. getting the answer time and time again that I can't afford to.. or that I have to work because taking time off work means losing money and I need the money.
I can see it would be easier just to start taking off and doing things with other people and then telling me all about it after you've been.
There is a good possibility that I've done this to people in my life myself in the past, just moved from one day to the next and done different things.
