The question you need to ask yourself is why you need admiration from strangers to validate your craft/hobbies. If you can't enjoy the process then maybe you don't enjoy the hobby at all IMO.

That is like saying enjoy playing baseball or hockey by yourself. Photography like plays, film and writing is a team sport.

Some sports are better with others, but people go to batting ranges and hockey rinks by themselves and have a good time. The sports I enjoy (cycling, racing) are generally not team sports. And I don't need my rides or races to "mean something" to strangers to enjoy them.

Humans are social creatures but there's a difference between being social and being completely dependent on others for your self worth and happiness.
