Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Do you usually seem to "play" yourself in your daydreams or a character you invented?
In my extensive plot stories, the main character is always someone of my own creation. But in my personal mini-daydreams, I am myself (like when I win that prestigious scholarship I wanted, or the guy I like finally asks me out.)
What about you? :)
my characters are just on a another level of cool that i cannot comprehend
I am myself but the idea of myself that I wish I could be. I'm overweight in real life, in my other life, I'm my ideal weight. I am not musically talented, in my other life I am. I'm not depressed in my other life, I'm successful, I have a family, etc. But it's still me. It's me but different.
I usually daydream about situations that happened to me in the past and in these daydreams I always act like I wanted, but didn't have the courage to do on the real situation.
It really depends on the daydream but usually I am me but slightly altered. Like I might be a vampire, or such.
I am myself, coming out of my shell a bit, and then immediately retreating. So the DDs are rather stifling, but I can't stop it?
