Where wild minds come to rest
Over the last couple of days I switched back to one of my other daydream worlds after concentrating on another for quite a few months. The one I've switched back to, I have lots of people around who love me. Family and friends, I'm married and have kids. I have a brother who's married to my best friend. I'm talented and so is everyone around me, all in different ways. Mine and my brother's childhood is tragic, (in some ways mirroring my real life) but we pulled through and are stronger for it.
I don't want to go into too much detail... Some of the supporting characters and the entire world itself are from a book series. Some stuff that takes place is really crazy and outlandish or too soap-opera-ish. And the feelings and details around the "me" and "brother" characters' backgrounds with their family growing up... I just realize that I had created something just as dysfunctional and in some ways similar to my own. Wow.
So all the people who love and support me in this daydream world, they make me feel better. They take care of that damaged little girl in my story and the one in my real life. I wish they could make my real life brother feel better too.
