I can definitely agree to a certain extent, when I started my peers and even people I would've considered as friends have mocked me countless times so I decided to go rather silent about my coding hobby. I'm not sure if it was jealousy but it definitely was something, back then strangers I met online seemed to care & support me more than those people, for sure. Close friends and family were always supportive, I'm very grateful for that.
