My parents are supportive when they see I'm happy. They don't like the fact that I went to college for one thing and am now doing a career that is completely unrelated. My mom recently came to a showcase performance, after I invited her time and time again, and realized how much work and time I put into this. She was pretty amazed. At the same time, she realizes I gave up the security, income, and benefits of the job I had before, which led her to believe that I'm not being smart about what I'm doing now.
