I just want to live life without having to seek external validation. I have hobbies, why can’t i have fun with my hobbies without having to share what i do?
Then share what you do, but do it less and less. Taper it.
If you are good at your hobbies, it’s your duty to share your gift with the world!
As you get older you’re not as hung up about that. You still need other people but it is not such a sharp pain. Try learning to accept yourself in totality, including the need for external validation. It might make your mental life more comfortable.
I think it’s awesome sharing your abilities to others. I enjoy learning about other people’s gifts. It’s great if you want to share your talents with others. Be proud of what you accomplish!
