I wonder what "normal" people think about too. What goes through their heads? Do they really have so much going on in their lives to fill up that time thinking about it? Aren't they bored? Sometimes I look at them & think wow I would kind of hate for my head to be that empty. Not that I think their stupid but the lack of imagination seems sad to me, then I get sad for me because I have too much.

i dont actually think i am a super human or anyhting like that, im just saying that I feel were a selective group of people and we all come on this site to talk about this "thing" we all do, that most people dont do. i do feel different from everyone else, I cant imagine what people think about all day or do in their spare time when they are bored.

I do feel like there is something special about us. I feel there is some purpose on earth that only people like us can fulfill. It may not be a grand purpose but there still is a purpose for what we are even if it was born from trauma.

Now you guys got me all interested. And I've got a question for you.

If something is happens to remind me of my current obsession, I immediately used to think of it as some kind of sign, if you know what I mean. In other words, I had some pretty mild ideas of reference, all due to daydreaming, which now make me laugh, but I use to take them seriously. I guess being immersed in fantasies clouds your analytical judgment. I got over it as soon as I activated critical thinking, but man, I thought I was going truly insane, haha.

Did this happen to anyone else?

I really think that we do have great imaginations.

Like M Hunter, I used to believe in electrokinesis and weather control. I also believed that I had ability to deal with the paranormal. I spent a lot of time in high school with those who also believed they had those abilities. I also practiced chi (which is more practical and I believe its legitimate). 

Now I am not quite sure what to believe when it comes to those subjects. 

Anyways I guess I feel that my daydreaming keeps me from getting lonely. I grew up as an only child with a lot of family issues and felt quite lonely. The only neighbor I had around my age was this b*tch who used me to play my computer games! So I started MDing when I was young and I swore I had my first ghost encounter around this time. To this day I don't know if I did or not- but I remember the "ghosts" like yesterday.

OMG yes!!! i honestly thought something was wrong with me and i had/have ideas like M Hunter (poster under me). I thought for the longest i could control the weather or sh**. or that i was better than most people and would amount to something great and powerful.

i think all of us want power...especially in our daydreams.

I suffer from dysthymia after all, lmao.


Because MD is a coping mechanism which automatically implies that there must exist an underlying problem which you try to cope with. Each and every activity you indulge in compulsively and which in return provides instant gratification, aside from disorders in OCD spectrum, is classified as psychological addiction. And psychological addiction is all about running away and dissociating from negative emotions, from feelings of insecurity or cowardice or inadequacy to severe depression. Yes, everyone who daydreams excessively and has a hard time resisting the impulse is running away from something. Only those who do it moderately and are in complete control can afford themselves to claim that they are doing just because they like it.

When I was your age, I thought I wasn't running away from anything and I laughed off everyone who would tell me that my daydreaming was a response to something negative. I felt perfectly fine and sent them all to hell, except that deep inside, I was an insecure kid who lacked self-esteem but who was an absolute pro at lying oneself. Now that I'm 20, I look back at my life and I find my blindness hilarious.

"and we all come on this site and talk about daydreaming and idk i feel like were super heros or something with a special power idk"

That's what Walter Mitty thought as well.

Don't know about the rest of you but according to my therapist, the only super power I have is to run away from negative emotions like a pro by indulging in MD and naturally to fuck up everything that stands in the way. It totally takes talent.
