Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I realized it depends on what I'm daydreaming about.
Plots about worlds and people which are not similar to reality make me happy for long. It's like an extension of my life or a second life.
But when I run into daydreams which are inspired by reality or real people a lot, I want those things to become real and they become nnreachable goals. Then those fantasies are the only time and place where I feel completely comfortable and getting back to reality feels like ripping myself apart.
