Keep your word or go back on it?

I asked some friends to go on a trip. They know and like each other and I initiated it. But now money is tight. I still want to go but would feel a little bad about it (for my budget sake) So should I go with them and tough it up or back out?

  • I'd go since it was my idea & then just not take another holiday for a long time. Tough it out.
