It is okay to take in projects that pay cheap if it is not that hard. When it is and you really use all your brain cells for it, they need to pay the right price, yano? It is intellectual property, love your craft.
It is also true that you do not have to suffer from traffic if you work from home. Though, I must say that there are lots of freelancers who also need to go out and meet with the clients or certain brands. Some even work more than 8 hours a day. Sure, there are no boss around or colleagues who ruin your mood, but there are still set of deadlines. Most of the time, you have to bring your laptop with you because there are times you don’t know when you are needed.
Also, keep in mind that you are basically paying for your electricity and internet, unlike in the offices where it is not your problem.
I’d like to believe that I see you in all the bright places. I do. But, I also see you in all the dark corners—shining brightly; telling me it’s all going to be okay; urging me to keep going. I am so grateful for that presence you left in my heart. It is heavy but it was better than the void. I am so grateful for the rain. It was raining then, wasn’t it? It was really cold.
We already know what’s right and wrong, but when you are suffering from mental illnesses, your thinking could be twisted. Sometimes, the concept of right and wrong gets blurry along with your memories. So, the message here is to seek help and find your ground. If you are lucky enough to be ‘normal enough’ and free from any of these illnesses, always listen. Be patient. People with mental illnesses have the capacity to always withdraw. Hold them and keep them near at all cost. Do not let them float in the abyss alone.
Not everyone conforms to the norms, if you don’t know that already. The society is changing. Now, if you think that it should be objective and just judge right away, that says a lot about you. All I’m saying is it is your choice to be influenced or not.
