During the thanksgiving holidays I was asked what I do for living and I told them I worked for myself (I did not elaborate anything else). And they looked at me as though I had said I was a porn star or something. Geez! My brother, who is a manager at a national retail chain and who makes a heck of a lot less than I do gets more respect than I do from family members. Honestly they think I am just moments away from being on the street.
I make a little under 6,000 per day and have been doing so for just over several months but my mother, bless her heart, even though she knows that I am doing well financially still prefers that I "get a real job". I don't know if this is a generational thing or what but I have always wondered what the psychology of loved ones who seem to not want you to succeed. Is it some weird kind of jealousy? Is it over protectiveness? I know the expression "you always hurt the ones you love" has something to do with it and was wondering if any of the other members have stories to tell. I would love to hear them.
