Ever denied your class?

Did you grow up in one class but identify in a 'higher' class now?

If you were raised in a 'lower' class, are you ashamed to tell others with a 'higher' class upbringing (if it is salient to the conversation)? Have you ever denied you came from a 'lower' class upbringing altogether? Or denied love, acknowledgement or attention to family still living in 'lower class'?

I'm trying to understand my brother's actions in the 5-7 years. He seems to be intensely ashamed of our upbringing in 'lower class' and I find it increasingly hard to stay close with him because of his views.

Any of your thoughts/reflections welcome.
