While out on *paternity leave*, my wife DM’ed an article from The Cut titled “How Much Money Means You Don’t Have to Worry?” by Caragh Poh. Poh pens a captivating story about what it was like growing up in a lower-middle class family, knowing that she was not necessarily poor, but at the same time, she never had enough to be comfortable.

I particularly enjoyed how ...
