Opportunity for community
Most of us enjoy some level of community. Even we introverts like to spend time with others as long as it's not too many, too loud or for too long :)
But community needs to be worked at. It doesn't come easy and it isn't always convenient. As someone who has moved to the other side of the world, away from everyone in my network, I know that it takes hard work and deliberate action to connect with people. It takes time and sacrifice. It's uncomfortable because it requires vulnerability.
But it is worth taking the opportunities that present themselves. It is worth the discomfort, the inconvenience, the hard work. It is worth it because we all need to feel connected.
