Self-employment can be bad slavery
I am on track of an interesting phenomenon that’s important when working self-employed: you have to protect yourself from economic self-exploitation.

On granting access to my mind
I thought about what I would do if I really, really care about somebody and take somebody seriously. Like, say, in a partnership.
