Where wild minds come to rest
First of all, everyone should read and comment on my first blog.
My daydreams are mostly about me as the main character and I just have normal conversations with people. People I know or have met.
In these conversations, I tell the person or people I'm talking with what I actually am thinking about...even though a lot of the times i think of fucked up shit. Sometimes, I'll tell my friends that i have maladaptive daydreaming in my daydream lol. The point is, I talk about everything in my daydreams, I just wish I was that extroverted in real life...though I am making an effort to now.
My question to you guys is how do you stop maladaptive daydreaming?
Jennifer suggested on my first blog that writing your daydreams down in a notebook or as a story will help. In fact, it made her stop completely. I've been trying to do this, especially in my creative writing class since we have writing notebooks. So, i'll just write what I'm thinking of, which is usually deep, meaningful shit about my life and what I wish to accomplish. I've thought about making a script about my whole life because maybe that will stop the daydreaming forever, but it probably won't because I need to accomplish my dreams to stop daydreaming.
So that is the method I am trying right now. To make my daydreams reality.
I'm thinking of my biggest triggers right now...
1. Weed (If you want to daydream your whole life, be high your whole life, you will get the most intense daydreams i promise you hahaha).
3. Waiting in line, waiting for buses, etc
Has anyone tried seeing a therapist? Did it work?
Someone tried telling me to try hypnotherapy cause it worked for her for a total of 2 weeks.
Has anyone else conquered maladaptive daydreaming? If so, how? Please share, I really want to stop daydreaming.
