I have discussed why comparing yourself to others based on your income is a terrible way to judge your self-worth. There I listed some barriers people have when talking honestly about money; things like feeling self-conscious about how much they make or not wanting others to feel bad about their own income level. Like everything in life, discretion is needed to judge with whom you are speaking and the type of conversation you should have. There needs to be a balance to how much you talk about money. You can talk about it too much (I’ll admit I might fall into this category) but I also think you can talk about it too little as well.
