This is something I have always struggled with and I wanted to take a poll and see how many other people struggle with this topic. I have always felt like when I am not making a lot of money, is much less than if I was making more, or had a better career. AS if I am not good enough when I am not making money. And I continually compare myself with other friends who do better in their careers and make more money than myself, and I feel like less of a person. Why is that? Please tell me why I would feel like less of a person because I don't make as much money as somebody else who is just another person like myself. Does this make sense, I am having a hard time putting it into words I guess. But I welcome a discussion on this topic and wanted to know how you all feel about your self worth and is it dictated by how much money you make or don't make. I do struggle with self esteem and always have. Maybe this is the real reason I feel this way, and maybe it has nothing to do with money actually. I am not sure.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
