Over the past several years, our financial surplus has been so big and our net worth has grown so quickly that we stopped sharing information about our finances with our family members at some point. We just felt increasingly uneasy to talk about it.
This was over two years ago. Since then, we've grown another 40%+.
But because we stopped talking about it completely, everybody in the family is now worrying. Literally, everyone:
-Some worry that we save too much, miss out on life and will regret it later.
-Others worry that our investments might have seriously gone wrong and that we have financial problems of some sort, and that we are just too embarrassed to talk about it.
The only consensus between the two camps seems to be that when we tell people everything is just fine, nobody believes us.
