I’m having discussions with my fianc� about my social status as a
full-time, work at home, self-employed artist/hand engraver/custom
jeweler. (Maybe I’ll show her the responses.) She has a very
corporate driven view of the world and doesn’t perceive my social
status the same as I do; sometimes that hurts coming from her, I can
laugh at anyone else!
Every day, business owners large and small, lawyers, doctors, the
retired rich, etc., fawn over my skill and work with respect and awe
in their eyes --and pull out their wallets.
How do you perceive your status and why? Maybe we’ll all feel a
little better about ourselves.
