Today’s question at The HerStories Project is from a writer and blogger wondering how to handle a close friend who is dismissive of her work. It may seem like this question and answer is specific to one profession, but it’s really for all people who feel that a close friend or family member is disinterested or even hostile towards their passions whether it’s a new job, creative work, a new way of eating, etc.
