Where wild minds come to rest
I've gathered from a few things people have said here, they go to Youtube for more ideas on what to daydream and movies and books and so on.
I am influenced occassionally by certain things--if there is a TV show I really relate to for instance, but it's got to be something that resonates with me in a really big way for some reason.
But my brain just makes up whatever it wants to. I go into my head and I have no control over what I daydream or what the storyline or characters are going to be. I couldn't change it or direct it if I wanted to. If it incorporates, say, some characters in a TV show, I don't have any control over that. And the storyline itself is just whatever my unconscious conjurs up, not much different from night time dreaming in a lot of ways.
And when it changes to something else, I don't have control over that, either.
It's different depending on what kind of place I'm in emotionally, also. But they generally go along a certain theme even though they are different.
Does anyone else have this, or do you have some aspect of control or influence over what you daydream?
I also get a "compulsion" to do it, I don't really know what it is, or how to describe it, all I know is I have to.
Sometimes a lot less, right now more than in a long time, but it's never a "do I feel like doing this?" type of thing. I just have to.
