Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
My name is Alex and I'm a new guy here who just recently found out about MD and the 'ins' and 'outs' in having it. I've always viewed my daydreams as both a blessing and a curse because of both the creativity I can spark in a single moment and the inevitable distraction it makes for me as a socially anxious person.
Now, with that being said (or wrote), I'm at the point in my life where I have to make a decision towards my future and what I want to do, yet there's no direction I can find myself set on. On the one hand, I want a creative career that will help me utilize my MD (because I love writing and artistry), but, as many of you are aware, there are certain changes and attachments that I fear might hinder me in the long run. I could choose another career, more suited towards what I'm capable of, but I don't want to be stuck with working at a job I don't find any passion in.
I'm seeing my friends and family achieve and strive for their dreams, yet I'm stuck undecided with many set backs bogging me down and it's slowly killing me. Do you guys have any tips on helping me out?
