Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
For a long time I believed that mimiking my daydream self and being what I am in my dreams would make me happy.
When I finally achieved what I was in my dreams I realised that nothing is going to make me feel the things I feel in my dreams.
Its the feelings I crave, not the contents and even if you achieve them in reality, you'll still be miserable.
Yup, Everybody deserves to be happy. and there is a way out. Atleast I believe there is. A few years ago even I felt sick of being like a zombie and that was a tipping point. I managed to stop daydreaming for a while and noticed all negative emotions surfacing up.
I'm certain I daydream to subconsciously push these negative emotions and not feel them. The only way out though is feeling them and letting them be.
There is a blog which expresses what I want to tell you in much more detail.
