Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Do u get answers through your day dreams? I had problems with meditating. My meditations have turned into day dreams which have ideas I need in them. They are funny, too. Perhaps that is because I have cried in my life so very much. Anybody gets answers to their problems and perhaps are funny, as well? Thanks guys. I love when you post back to me. I am not so alone in the world now that I have you guys.
Thanks for sharing Lindy. That's interesting. I'm glad they're more positive now for you. :) It's always a nice feeling when someone stands up for you--but sadly, some of us can only get that in our daydreams.
since most of my MDDing is around me, the real me, alot of scenarios are funny. I've used MDD to sharpen my humor or atleast I think I have.
When mine started they were centered around sexual scenarios. I quit trying to pray or meditate which I wasn't good with to begin with anyways. I was frightened by all the sex scenes. Now, they are positive, justice definitely gets served in them because I have a lot of problems in the real world. They are funny because I imagine what my Mexican neighbors would say and do about situations that I am suffering through. I also live out fascinating storylines in my day dreams. I am usually the cause of the events happening all around me but, am usually just there to watch it all happen. Basically, in my day dreams somebody takes up for me for a change. The conversations I think up, I am not having, either. Others have them.
Sometimes mine are funny, just by nature of what the discussion are. How are yours funny? Is it the scenarios themselves? I find that daydreaming helps me sort out either a real scenario or emotion that I'm dealing with, or it helps me live out a fascinating storyline. I''ll explain.
For instance, I'm not a true character in my daydreams. My main character is somewhat between an idealized version of me and a love interest. I don't know if I want to be him or make love to him. Maybe a bit of both? Which shows my true narcissism haha!! But anyway, a lot of the times, he will be in a particularly harrowing or difficult situation that is full of heavy emotions. Other times, he is just the center of attention and everyone loves talking to him, etc. Other times, I'm playing around with little fantasies that I probably shouldn't mention here. :) So it's fun for me and insightful, too. It helps me sort through difficult things, as well as just enjoy creative stories.
