keeping up with whomever

October 18th, 2018 at 06:39 pm

I know that comparing is fruitless as we all have different realities. I spent the day at a teambuilding event for my work we all went to a corn maze and had lunch and played games. I tend to be very quiet and listen and frankly I was stunned by the amount of info they shared.

Many of these people have the new gadgets, nicer cars etc but many of them are working themselves to death with multiple jobs and openly share the fact they are broke.
In this area and I have worked at many places as I do temp work and this scene plays out over and over.
While I should be thrilled and feel grateful that my situation is by comparison, fantastic, I feel sad that the state of financial health and the lack of real financial education by the masses.
I feel over paid at this place for the type of work and they are generous with OT but the people are all chasing their tails.
This is NOT a low end company and I cannot fathom how far ahead I would be if I had been here even a year ago.
I wonder what effect being surrounded by people never making headway is. I think when you look to those around you it is easy to justify splurges as everyone else is doing it etc.
