II hate being asked what Job or how much salary I make.


Recommended Posts

I hate being asked that & don't want to be called bum/lazy/broke. Because I don't work nor I don't want to disclose my disability's. And I want to till some little lies for what Job I do. So I wouldn't be socially isolated or rejected because of telling people the truth.

Hey, I completely agree with you on this as it feels like a pretty personal question to ask anyone as we are of course more than our employment / lack of employment. That does not and should not define you even if you had a dream job.


You could try switching the conversation over with something like "I'm currently volunteering / retraining / updating my skills / upskilling as I'd really like to work in... xxxx"


Often people ask those type of questions just to be social but it might be worth trying to shift the conversation over to things you're more passionate about.


Could you try this?
