We like to treat our families to one nice holiday each a year and that is probably what brings us the most joy. I never in a million years thought he would be earning what he is now.

Thinking purely about the money aspect, I feel mixed emotions. Lucky that I earn enough to support us, pressure that I need to keep my job and try to earn as much as possible, and guilty that I perhaps do not give enough financially to my partner.

I’m tempted to fake interest in a relationship with my dad for the money... here's why.
Members Public

I can’t help but come back to the thought that as he is unwilling and incapable of trying to make up for this emotionally, doesn’t he deserve to do so financially? And don’t I deserve something from him that could bring me something good in my life?

I feel generally the ‘quiet quitting’ term is a misnomer, we are acting our pay. For reference, I am frequently receiving praise and even internal awards for my hard work. Since ‘quiet quitting’, I’ve not had any negative comments but there’s definitely been a few suggestions of burnout mentioned.
