People think you have to have high paying jobs to live comfortably when its really about how responsible and greedy you are.
I agree with all of that...100%
I was just pointing out that having to get up every morning of your life and go to work in order to pay bills should be viewed as a "problem". Even if you love your job.
If your parents had extreme wealth then they would spend more time with family, or travel more, or charity work, or do whatever they want...if they love their job and want to keep doing it then they would do it on their time, not the time that their boss demands of them.
I'm not saying they were/are unhappy...I'm just saying they would love to have more money.
