Financial privilege is deeply relative depending on what country you grow up in, who your friends and neighbors are, and what your lifestyle expectations are. Whether you grew up with money to spare or pinching pennies, there's often a specific moment that launches greater self-awareness around money.

In a recent Reddit thread, people who grew up with money shared when they realized they were privileged, and some of the anecdotes serve as a reminder that most of us are privilege in some way.

1. jonahvsthewhale lives that vacation life.

When I started talking in school about the pros and cons of Disney World vs Disney Land, and people were like "YOU'VE BEEN ON VACATION?! LUCKYY"

2. awhq's sister-in-law has lived a charmed life.

I did not grow up rich. But my husband did.

His sister once said "I didn't know everyone didn't live in big houses until I went off to college." Apparently she led a VERY sheltered life.

3. xnity found out the truth through FAFSA.

Wasn’t rich but realized I was far better off than I was lead to believe when I tried filling out FAFSA forms to go to college. My mother freaked when I told her I needed income information. Turns out, she’d been lying about our financial state for years and didn’t want to see any of that money spent on college for any of her 5 kids.
