Since my first high salary dev job in 2018 and until 2021, despite all my attempts to explain, my mom thought that I’m not actually a programmer but rather a scammer that just makes companies pay me salary for nothing. The argument that being a legit programmer is way easier than being a scammer mastermind fell on deaf ears.

Do you know why I said she thought so until 2021? Because I stopped talking to her in 2021 when she said that “being bisexual is a sin” and “I want to stop treating my cancer to die as soon as possible just to not see you anymore” after my coming out.

    Anyone who is toxic and abusive should be cut off regardless of relationship!

    I lost half of my family to politics over the last five years. I say it in the same tone that I say that I've lost four kilos this year.
    Sometimes it is good to cut some toxic people lose. You did right.
