I don't mean to say that people who are on lower incomes do not work equally hard, they most certainly do. And I definitely think my family are truly blessed. I am happy to pay my taxes knowing that they benefit others who are not financially as stable as we are.
The insinuation that I have seen, both on bh and irl, that somehow dh and I were born with a silver spoon in our mouth, little comments about how DH is not a "real man" because his job does not involve physical labour, (it has happened and the comment in hindsight was hilarious), etc, upset me. We worked hard. We still do. We are in the highest bracket on that report, but not by much.
I often feel like I should be apologising for our incomes, but then I think, why? We did not work towards our goals to offend anyone else. We did it for ourselves and our kids. Same as most people do, regardless of the money they bring home!
