Change your negative mindset! Become delusional like us!! That's the exact reason why I avoid people like the plague. My social life is non existent, but I don't need it because I'm highly introverted. I prefer mathematics and reading books 24/7. Ofcourse I'll do some sports with people and enjoy it (I'm gonna go to Norway soon for downhill longboarding with a crew), but I prefer to be alone. It helps me, but alot of extroverts will have more troubles with dealing with the toxicity, insecurities and ignorance of most people.
I deal with the criticism by not putting myself in the position to be blasted with human verbal diarrhea.
