Where wild minds come to rest
It's been about five days since I've began slowly stripping away maladaptive daydreaming. It's been going pleasantly well so far by my surprise. In the beginning I told myself I'm just going to quit cold turkey and if I have some slip-ups it's OK and Iv'e been doing just that. I haven't had as nearly many urges to have "my time" and if I do I will only have it for 10 minutes and then be done with it and I am satisfied with that. After I've had my ten minutes I'm good for the day. I would have never been able to do that a week ago. No job, no car, off for the summer, daydreaming was taking up a big chunk of my day... not anymore. Whenever I feel an urge I distract myself with something Emily want's to get done, not Anna(my main character in my world) I've become more focused on myself now learning more and more each day who I really am. I haven't taken the time in years to really have some me time and find myself. To sum everything up I'm really proud of myself. It feels great to go from all day daydreaming to 10 minutes a day or even none at all. If anyone else is going through the process of eliminating daydreaming all together or at least trying I'd love to here from you!
