My parents don't know how much I earn (and why I don't tell them)
While I've always wanted my parents to be proud of me, at this stage in my career they don't know how much I earn. In the past, my mom used to use my salary as a way to compare me to my siblings and even my dad. Now, I opt out of the conversation and instead offer to help the family out where I can.
I didn't realize this was a divisive issue until I started talking about it with some friends at work. Do your parents know how much you earn now? Have you always (or never) told them?
