I can understand where you are coming from with all of this for sure. When I first jumped into writing and this path I’m on I faced a lot of pressure from various people. Not to the point where we were fighting, but certainly gave me some doubts about what it is I’m doing. All I can say is by this point you might be better off showing someone what you can do or how much you are actually earning. In times where explaining and justifying your reasons doesn’t work, the next best thing is to show results to people.
Good luck out there! 😃
