I think there's a fine line between being too independent, and being self-centered.
In one way, you have to be alone much of the time to create, say a piece of art. But that may lead to cutting yourself off from everything else.....ahh, such the predicament!
Ok, I'm off to get fresh air
This was done in photoshop and painter in about two days.
Now, get back to creating, but don't get self centered!!
