I'm only asking this to find out if anyone else is in a similar situation as me. My parents are a little disappointed in me with my decision of becoming an internet marketer instead of getting a degree. I can't really understand why, I make enough to support my self, in fact I was recently able to purchase a Mercedes paid for in full. I don't mean to brag but I was actually pretty happy, I drove to my parents house and showed them, they said it was nice but it would be nicer if I became a lawyer or a doctor or even an accountant. It made me kind of sad, even if I became Mark Zuckerberg they'd still be disappointed because I didn't get a diploma. I can sort of understand that they wanted me to get a diploma so I could be something and people would look up to me but why does it matter if I'm still able to support myself and live a happy life? Personally I think my parents are upset because when people ask them what I'm up to or what I'm doing they can't say anything, they can't say "Oh my son is an online merchant" without making a fool of themselves. I'm 100% sure that if I was a billionaire my parents still wouldn't be happy with my decision. Do your parent's know about what you do for a living? Are they accepting of your career path?
