Don't worry anon, introvert is my middle name, I get how that is.
Look, a couple of things, loneliness sucks, but I also treasure it. I've learned both to "hang out with myself" and enjoy it, and also to slowly put myself out there, slowly making significant connections with people offline and online, (well, mostly online), even people from /ic/. Even if it's just a handful of them, it feels nice to know that you mean something for someone else, and that there's a mutual trust and admiration, that there's someone you can just talk to without having to worry about a thing. If you felt the need to make a thread like this, I'm assuming it's because you feel as shitty as I used to and were looking for someone else in a similar position as yours, well from introvert artist to introvert artist I can tell you that art IS kind of fixing my loneliness, I'm fortunate enough to now have people that give me relentless love for no reason whatsoever. Sorry I'm just rambling here, I could talk about this forever but it'd start to sound preachy and gay for 4chan standards, so yeah the point is: being an introvert is hard, but once you find the right people it's all worth it, SO worth it.
I honestly wish you the best, and I hope you figure it out in a way that works for you. You can do it. I'm still working on it myself.
