Freelancing has many benefits and drawbacks, so it is not easy to say whether it is the right choice for you. Your personal history is irrelevant to your decision unless it has a direct bearing on your ability to work. The most important thing to start with is that you have good solid experience in multiple languages and frameworks, as you have to go where the work is. With only some Python experience I think you may struggle to find work. It may be an idea to talk to recruitment agencies in your locality to see what skills are in demand and whether freelance work is called for.
