    The pressures of performing to/for rich parents would surprise most people.

    No. For the simple fact that neither of my parents was married to my ex-wife.

    i'm only 18 but i'm the first person in my entire family to go to college, i have a healthy savings built up, and i just opened my first small business.

    i come from very very poor people. i could drop out of school right now and find a way to make more money than my parents ever did, lol.

    Hehe, no respect! I don't really speak from experience here, but I have watched my friends deal with said pressure.

    Why?

    Why would my answer to that question be suitable to you? A very economic-minded guy like Pio will be the first to tell you that his (relatively) high paying/status job has some drawback and was the result of a conscious choice to sacrifice certain things.

    Hmmm, not sure. I can think of reasons to say yes and reasons to say no. Even when I compare lifestyles, there are ways in which I live more lavishly and ways in which I live less. Overall, the answer is probably yes.

    Now, if you compare me now to them now, they are comparatively rolling in it.
