So I have come into a situation. I didn't understand at first why I was feeling so frustrated with this problem. But I think I realized what is happening, and I am not sure where to go or how to deal with it. So this is what is going on.
I love making 3D art. I use to be big into the community and use to get lots of comments on my art. Which made me feel really good.
So then I gradually went more into my gaming, where I didn't do my art at all. I would maybe make one image a year, only because I felt guilty that I didn't do my art. Something I use to love doing.
So now since I am no longer gaming, 34 days in of no gaming. I am doing my art again. But when I post my images on the site, I get no comments. And it frustrated me to the point of where I started asking myself if it's worth it even doing my art. And then the small seed started in my head to play games. Then I realized I think it's the comments give me that small dopamine fix. It makes me feel rewarded.
I understand I haven't steadily stayed in the community for years. And I know I shouldn't expect to be getting a lot of comments yet. But it still frustrates me.
So I am asking for some advice from you guys. I don't want to push myself back into gaming because I am frustrated over not getting that dopamine fix from the comments. LOL So do you think I should continue, just keep posting to get used to the average level of dopamine? Or should I just make my art and post later, after I am feeling more at a normal dopamine level in my head.
