I’m 24 years old and will make about 90k this year. Very happy with that and content with where I am now as opposed to this time last year. I understand it’s not all about the money, and I have a VERY good WLB that is non negotiable for me in my career, but I am curious at what point in your life did you stop chasing the money as much? Was it once you hit a certain salary? Or once you reached a certain milestone? Or another reason? Or never!?

Feeling hurt as I saw my childhood friend (who I kept in touch with pre-covid) is out at a restaurant 5 minutes from my place. Used to do monthly zoom HHs with her the first 4-5 months of SAH but have since lost touch as I was being more cautious and she wasn’t due to (her reasons of) being single and not liking living with her elderly parents. I had offered to picnic but she never took the offer (and I haven’t seen her do it with other friends, she only dines at restaurants) (1/2)
