One of the things I adore about the Internet is it’s ripped down a lot of walls geography built up around us.

To be honest, I used to have a lot of friend who were layabouts. They didn’t care much when I started trying to make something of myself, and even made a few snide comments. I know this is common because I hear people struggling with the same thing.

Your response made me realize I did exactly what you’re talking about — I went to other communities for support. It’s definitely possible to keep existing relationships AND move toward a different career.

Thanks for expanding on this. It’s a tricky topic.
