Where wild minds come to rest
Why do we daydream? Why do we make up characters and interact with them in the scenarios we choose? This question has been puzzling me for sometime and I think I now finally have an answer. As humans we thrive on human interaction, somewhere out there they're is someone at a party having the best of times. He/she is surrounded by the people they love interacting with and all is good in their minds. I think we daydream because we are lonely in a various amount of ways. Some of us truly have no one to talk too, others are surrounded by people that they don't trust, and lastly there are those who are too broken to even try to interact with their fellow man. I believe we naturally daydream to create a substitute for this need for human interaction. Our brains may have recognized something was amiss and developed the creative pathways to create such characters and worlds in our own minds.
