You're not alone in your freelance journey. You can contact your peers who do similar work or share your values. You can be there for each other, share your wins and struggles, and recommend each other. You can find other freelancers on social media, just like your (future) clients, and on groups. Those can be on Facebook, Slack or other platforms.
Here are 3 freelancers groups I love and recommend:Freelance Business
