Thank you Jessica for the reveling tale of how you deal with your privilege. That term has taken on so much social definition of racism and bigotry I personally hesitate to us it. I can identity with much of your post. Though I was upper low class and lived in a trailer, but otherwise I can say it was close. I qualified for the full Pell Grant every time I took it if you want an idea of things. I am just glad I got where I am now. No matter how diseased I might be. I just think we all need to check our privilege and realize that we are not as bad off as we may think. 😁❤️
