Opinion of an Artist

So I’m sitting at work today and suddenly my brain flashes to something that happened with my ex years ago and i must say, looking back on it completely infuriates me!

He had a friend who parents were incredible wealthy. They had a 4 story mansion on the end of a peninsula with a beautiful view of a body of water from both the front and back. My ex was a psychology major and i cant remember what his friend was but we all went to the same college. One night we went by this kid’s home and his mom was there. As any mother does she started asked about work and school. We it came to me I replied that I was an Art Education major and worked 3 jobs. The look on each of their faces including my ex said everything. It dropped me down to the lowest part of the food chain. It showed that they saw me as an uneducated parasite on society. His mother completely ignored my existence after that continuing to speak and look at only the other two.
It hurt that a complete stranger would have such a negative view of an artist But what made it worse was my ex literally said to me, “I cant believe you would say that you should have lied! You completely embarrassed me!” The same guy who constantly pressed me to work more on my crafts in private.
I truly dont understand the negative thoughts on crafters.
