Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Have you heard about the reality shifting trend that's been going on on Tiktok for a while now? I just recently stumbled upon it and thought "well, that sounds a lot like maladaptive daydreaming!" here is an article on the subject.
Basically, reality shifting is supposedly "going into another reality" while your real self remains asleep, or a wilder version which involves a clone of yourself, but I haven't grasped the concept yet. It's also been said to be similar to lucid dreaming.
A lot of young people on Tiktok have been using it to visit their favorite fictional places such as Hogwarts, and live out a fantasy love life with a character they like.
So, I am wondering, what are your thoughts on this? The process to "get there" seems way more complicated than your average daydream!
