Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Now that I don't seek out my MDD by playing music, I've noticed that now I tend to try to replay a real life situation/conversation, so I'll just slip into it. Like if it was a good conversation, and I felt good afterwards about what I said and did, it's like I'm trying to feel that again, or if it was a not so great conversation, then I try to replay it and change it, but then feel disappointed because I can't. Does this happen to anyone else when they daydream?
Do you also do it if you didn't like the conversation? Do you try to fix it or change your response in your DD?
yep, there's a few things from my past that I hate happened and sometimes they pop up, and I just try to replay them but it's like painful to try. I decided it's best to ignore those as much as possible, otherwise I immediately feel like shit.
I do the exact same thing. For instance, if I had a fight with somebody and didn't really stand up for myself... I would later on the day think of better things I could've said and recreate the situation in my head (Obviously with my ending up as the champion in the conversation). I always try "fix" things I obviously can't in reality as a sort of coping mechanism.
