Money could be a topic of conversation today, but you don’t have to join in if you don’t want to. Your finances are your own business, and if you don’t feel like sharing, don’t. When you start talking about how much you make or how much you spend, the numbers are going to create waves that won’t be easily undone. So avoid the topic altogether or change it if it’s raised. There is a time and a place to discuss personal finances, but this isn’t it.
