Funnily enough, the people who do actually have jobs like that are generally the most supportive/interested. It’s been a rule of thumb that people who are the most condescending hate their jobs the most. How do I know this? Because again these are friends and family members who talk openly about these things on a frequent basis.
I’ve never in the past ten years gotten on my high horse about self-employment. It’s not for everyone, but it is for me. That’s kinda the point actually. If I don’t harangue them about their 9 to 5, they shouldn’t openly judge me about my decisions.
