The Privacy Of Your Own Salary Part 2

July 08, 2012  by: Marlo E.  Points: 15   Category: People    Views: 705

I see no reason to tell people that I do not earn regularly. I know my limitations and problems... I am not ashamed of it. Some who tell a different thing about their salary to others are either feel ashamed kind of or do it to save on taxes.


Salary is something I consider very private, so I don't normally disclose that information. I know some people volunteer that information to others, sometimes because they want to brag about it or they plainly just don't care. One advantage about keeping the figure of your salary a secret is that you get to keep your privacy. If you keep it to yourself, though, sometimes other people will think you earn more, and will keep coming to you to borrow.

In the workplace, I like to keep it under wraps because we're just not supposed to talk about 'salary' or in my case - hourly pay. Sometimes I do though. The company I work for pays everyone differently, and to hear that someone else in your same position gets paid more, is a bit discouraging. Luckily I think I'm on the end of getting paid more than most, but that can be especially tricky when people ask, because I don't want them to be mad or jealous. All of my friends know how much I make though, because I don't really care - they won't judge me for it.

I see no reason to tell people that I do not earn regularly. I know my limitations and problems... I am not ashamed of it. Some who tell a different thing about their salary to others are either feel ashamed kind of or do it to save on taxes.

My friends (both on real world and on virtual world) are aware that I am not a regular bread earner and there is no point in telling a lie about my earnings. Instead I feel happy when someone asks me about my earnings - I say that I was not earning and now I am getting back - a slow way but yes things are happening around for good now
I don't except for circumstances that I need to like getting a loan. But on a simple conversation, I don't. I just smile when someone inquires and say it is just enough to live by.

At work it is a policy not to disclose confidential personal information, and that includes our salary. One can get suspended for it. But sometimes, you can't help but talk about salaries at work. And you know when that happens, someone may feel bad. As I said, work alone is stressful, so why stress yourself more knowing a colleague earns more than you do? What you don't know won't hurt you. It is best to focus on what you have and not what you don't have. Know your potentials and use them to make yourself more successful.
