I've struggled all of my life. Worked my butt off, waited tables, answered phones, bathed dogs, cleaned houses, worked in offices I hated, held down 2 and 3 jobs to support my kids. I have nothing to be ashamed of - so why is it that NOW that I've finally gotten to a place of being at financial peace, - why is it that people make me feel like I should be ashamed to say that I'm doing well financially? Especially on CM, the mere mention of 'not struggling financially' warrants a lot of backlash and name calling. I got referred to as a rich bitch today, and that hurt.
Is it my poor (economically disadvantaged) background that makes me feel like I should hide my success or is it really a social stigma to be better off?
(this is in relationships because it's about how I relate to others now) - I guess.
