Where wild minds come to rest
Hello. I'm Rachel, seventeen years old. I know I met many of you in the past several months on here, and lately timezones haven't quite been in my favor so it's been hard for me to keep in contact with some of the people I met here in the summer. Many of you who I've met know that my daydreams have been gone for about three-ish years now. They came when I was eleven, very suddenly, and left very gradually when I was fourteen-ish years old. At first, I was very sad when they left, because I was one of those people who enjoyed their daydreams. It wasn't my choice for them to leave. They just did. Just like it wasn't my choice for them to come back about a month ago, but they did. At first, I didn't think much of it. It wasn't unusual for my daydreams to come back for a day or two once a year. However, they didn't stop at Day 1 or Day 2. I told myself I wouldn't tell anyone until it had been several weeks, because I knew that there was still a chance it was a very short-term thing. It still could be a short-term thing, however, it's less likely because it's been a month now. They're very similar to how they were three years ago, with only a few minor differences. Now, I have very mixed feelings about them and whether or not I want them to stay. On one hand, I don't mind them. On the other hand, I really don't have time to scramble to balance two different lives; I'm in high school now, not middle school like I was before. I'm very busy compared to how I was before. And besides, whether I want them to stay or not, it's not my choice.
I'm not sure why they suddenly came back. It's very odd. When I was eleven, they came because I was going through a lot of life changes and my life was generally unpleasant. When I was fourteen, my life was very pleasant, so they left. I'm not going to say that my life since they left has been overall pleasant, because it hasn't, but there's nothing special about a month ago or now. It's stressful and busy and I don't enjoy it, yes, but it was like that last year, and the year before. So, I'm really not sure why they came back now.
Anyway, I just wanted to make this post to update you guys. I'm not sure how many of you can relate to your daydreams leaving for this long and then coming back, but I'll post this anyway. I hope everyone is doing well and I'll try to get on Wild Minds earlier in the day so I can hopefully catch some of my friends.
