It’s certainly not easy to be alone and working alone. The life of a writer and a freelancer is a pretty lonely one. Since you are a designer there is a possibility to work with teams through freelancing, but there’s not going to be that physical connection there.
At the end of the day, the freedom that you get is nice, but it’s a bit of a lonely path to be walking. However if you live in a place with a big enough community, you may be able to find other people around you that are in a similar boat. Who knows.
