It may be in south asia, that being uber driver does well enough to make a living. You are probably better off than in the U.S. where it's tough to make it independently single even with an uber job especially in high-cost of living cities and states, and many with college degrees are forced to be underemployed. So while your parents may have high expectations they probably don't realize you are doing relatively well compared to many places in the world and I don't think SAD affliction should not be blamed for probably negatively affecting career progress. 27 is still fairly young, as you don't really start creaking until past mid-thirties imo. As for driver jobs, truck driving is fairly common in the U.S., not a white collar job, but still counted as a "real" job.
