I hate expectations.

It as been almost 3 months since I quit my previous job. I felt like I wasn't improving on anything so I quit and decided to find a new one that I really like and enjoy, This month i tried to do  commissions  and I was happy to get a few clients.  I felt happy and relaxed doing these works and I thought I could do this as a full time job, but then I think of the society and what my parents want. They don't say it out loud but I feel like they don't see a future in what I'm doing, and yes the society expectations are also putting a pressure on me. Every time someone asks If I found a job I just wanna disappear.  My parents are also arguing often since my dad lost his job again and that puts more stress on me to find a job quick and just not dwell on this thing that I want to do.

Hey there,

Welcome to the community. I'm one of the digital mentors here and I give advice and support to those who reach out to us. It's interesting that you mentioned the expectations in society, because I think we are all affected by those. However, I wonder, what does a happy life look like for you? Is it doing a job you really like and enjoy, or working away where you're not happy?
