I live somewhat hermit like except I do come into town for work. To be completely isolated socially would have psychological remifications I can project to know, but it could also be quite different than one could imagine. I choose to create at great cost in my life as a strongly introverted person, but still within a required social context.
Edit: I can't get this question out of my mind because even though I have a self identity of autonomy especially in creative endeavors to a large extent, but have more recently been learning how human identity is multileveled, and Western culture tends to deny that in favor of the individual. Here's a question, do feral children create, and how does that compare to socialized children?
My assumptions about the OP contained several possibilities including that he might already accept more flaws in others, and by seeing that it would be easier to balance the scale and be more accepting of self as another equally valuable human being.
It's what helps me with performance anxiety in music. I always ask myself what I would think of someone else messing up, and when I realize I would still respect them, I realize it is possible to respect myself and be at peace even in the face of failure. I do have colleagues who are intolerant of mistakes of others in performance, and I don't think badly of them because of it. They are technically classical music snobs, but are only that way because of being judged all the time, or for another non peaceful reason, so I'm not interested in adding insult to injury and judging them yet again. It make more logical sense to me to just help people feel more peace about themselves and others regardless of the baggage they start with.
So assuming anything about the OP motives seems irrelevant to me. Accepting others, accepting self, having peace. That is what I care about regardless of motives or starting points, or the process by which it needs to be achieved.
