These are very helpful insights, thanks! It seems like you have been through quite some conversations of this kind haven’t you? :) for me it’s been a big problem for a long time to explain my career choices to my family and I often felt judged – especially when I was only beginning and making most radical choices. It became much easier when fruits of my work started appearing – first paid clients. I guess in case of my family a lot of their concerns where coming from the place of fear, because it seems. so risky to them what I do(freelance writing).
