If you find that your daydreams involve characters from, based on, or inspired by real life, I urge you to detach them from their 'originals', or delete them altogether if you can't separate the two.

If you let anything to do with your characters leak from the daydream into your real perspective, they will influence your perception and view. They will influence your opinions, actions, feelings and memories, and you don't want that.

Isolate or destroy. Don't end up like me.

Thank for the advise. I'm lucky in that all my characters and MDD or make believe.

The majority of my characters are real... like all of them...

I don't generally put real-life characters into my daydreams... besides myself. However, I do have my own 'fantasy' life, which is basically my daydream of what the future will be like. I do feel like it has been altering my perspective in real-life, though. Like, I feel like I've constructed such a good life in my mind that I want to see it happen in real-life and I get so disappointed that my life isn't going to be like my dreams that I sometimes try to go in the direction I think I need to, in order to get my life like how my dreams are...

@starlet It's also hard to feel anything for ghosts that aren't real. Anything you may think you feel for a character has a sky high probability of being an illusion as well.

I think that if a daydream character based on a real person ends up replacing that person, the character is a personal insult to the original and must be destroyed. Would you like it if a friend (or worse, your partner) replaced you with an altered, ghosted copy that has nothing to do with you?

i think it'd be very hard to simply "delete" a character that you love.

@Amity is dreaming try changing his name and small details about his appearance over time.

I think the fact of that being temporary is good and bad, good for the reasons you stated, but bad because when your daydreams do come back. Its kinda awkward...

I'd be rid of it already if I knew how to. For me, any real contact (like direct eye contact or face to face conversation) with someone who ended up being 'cloned' seems to kill the DD engine, and for a while I can tell them apart. Trouble is, this isn't permanent.

I recently added a new character to my DDs, and he is a character in real life, he only talks to me in one class, but we act like best friends, in my DDS, he is my bestest friend and actually is playing a pivotal role in the plot, so how can I get rid of this?

I completely agree with you, guys. :/
