Hello, I was thinking to write this for a while, but i thought it wasn't needed. Until some recent events.
My story is: I loooove to create games. It's my passion, I do it for 7 years, started from gamemaker went to UDK and many more until i landed on my favorite engine. Unity.
I recently finished army(its a must in my country). It was a huge waste of time and resources. But i learned one thing. Life is small and time is worthfull. So i decided to start my first game for android. Meanwhile, my parents were push me to find a work. I went to a web development team. 9 hours per day for 20$. And the boss, owww the most mean person. With the support from some close people i decided to start and continue doing what i love. So i finally ended my first game. It was an android game , i didnt expect much. I didnt even promote it. But i was so happy and proud. Finally i was doing what i love! A month passed by, and my parents was like. Uhmm try that job, go to this site ,search something.
I was like ahhh okay...
I went to some jobs, but after a while my brain or my heart was saying some stupid stuff to not get the job because i knew deep inside i couldnt be happy. I was afraid that maybe i wont have time to continue game development.
I didnt take the jobs, and i was happy inside. Meanwhile i was writing a scenario for a game named situ which i recently making.
So i decided to discuss with my parents that i want to give all my time to making the game. But they dont understand the internet. They think i play games and not making them. They supported me at first and those where the most creative days. But then, it started again. Do something with your life, do that, do the other thing, you cant be successfull with internet or without a physical job. I was soooo mad at them. So it started to bring me down. Almost i got depressed. Meanwhile i tried some freelancing websites just to show them you can make money from the internet. But i never got picked for a project. I searching some space and relaxation throught games by playing them. I just thinking i should drop my pc to the recycle and start working at McDonalds. I just cant stand it. I write this because Tim Ruswick you once said about negative people in life.
Please i'm begging for advice. I'm begging for a solution. If anyone can bring me a way out of this.
I want to ask sorry for my bad english.
Thank you sooo much for your time and really sorry once again.
