I feel I’m very overpaid for my job and it makes me sick how I’m paid so much while others and most people make way les despite working harder.

I donate but it still sickens me that I’m even in a position like this and how unfair society is. What can I do to relieve this feeling?

    Dont feel guilty because there are thousands if not millions of people who do even less than you and are paid wayyy more. Just consider yourself lucky and do some charity if you feel like its bad karma or something

      That makes me feel worse, it shows how unfair the world is, and tbh I don’t there’s many people % wise in the world who earn more than me and work less… sure some make more but they’re working 100 hour weeks

        you are correct, of course, but guilt won't fix it. join a union or social organization or volunteer for a charity. turn your upset into working to change the world in your local area

    >booo hooo society is unfair
    Fuck off.
    Anyone can dig a ditch, anyone can punch a cash register, anyone can pack a box.
    A skilled pumber needs a lot of trainign, experience, and math.
    Thus plumbers make more than ditch diggers.
    If you're talking about, oh, actors that work 9 weeks a year and make millions - that's stupid rare among actors and just stop going to movies, it will sort out.

    You can give some to me, or become my sugar daddy. Pretty please. I have mental health struggles and can't hold down a job. Can I move in with you?

    easy. you didn't deserve to get the position you're in. you either lied or otherwise screwed other(s) over to get there. you're probably still lying about how much work you do. you want a clean conscience come clean with it and accept making less (or having to effort more). a clean conscience is worth more than all money and power in the universe.

      it's also possible you didn't actively do anything wrong, but got the position due to someone else's wrongdoing that you know or have feeling about. unfortunately just accepting unearned goods that you got by others being screwed over should and will still fuck your conscience up. in this case you need to actively fight them and make sure others know how shitty they are. then your consceince will clean.

    and note that this will only get worse. no matter how much of it you donate away or "help others" with. those things only have a net positive impact on the world if you'd spend them on stupid/selfish things otherwise, they are net negative compared to you just holding on to the money (or letting it go to whoever deserved but got screwed out by you in the first place)

    You need to allow yourself to be happy.

    If you saved your money and retired early, would you feel guilty in retirement too?

    its just how it is with white collar work. the more XP and knowledge you get, the less and less you actually work but you still end up getting paid more and more.

    i'm in this situation right now. i went from busting my ass 60 hours a week for $110k to doing fuck all in a WFH position for $160k. i even brought this up to my boss, told him i didn't feel like i was earning my paycheck, and he told me they hired me for my expertise and guidance on things, not to be one of the "turn the crank" guys.

    You shouldn’t. Your work experience/education/effort has put you where you are. You are not at fault for choosing the best opportunities available to you. This world is not a fair world. It is hierarchical. You can’t change that fact. Most people are the product of their efforts and experiences. Leave your mark.
