Where wild minds come to rest

It's been a while since I've been on here, but something was bothering me today, so I came back. :]

Is it bad that I don't want to do anything to get rid of my daydreaming? I mean, yes, it does cause problems for me [like not focusing, procrastination] but I feel that it keeps me sane and if I lose it, I'll lose my mind as well. Do any of you actually want to get rid of your daydreaming or do you feel incomplete without it?

I definitely want to get rid of mine completely.

We need to learn how to practice control over our daydreams. And the whole mind for that matter.

I dream about being rid of my daydreams....I fantasize about cutting out this part of my brain like I would cut the liver out of a frog on a dissecting table.

But if I did this, I would lobotomize myself in the process. Our brains do not run on a grid....they are amazingly intricate and alive. Forcing myself to stop dreaming or good would be a big mistake.

Most of the time I want my day dreams to stop. I'm in high school and I want to be able to sit through a class without going off into a different reality. I want to stop myself from becoming even more attached to day dreams and the people I have created in them. But sometimes when I'm really sad or lonely (like today, stupid Valentine's Day), daydreaming is what keeps me happy. And, I don't think I would be myself without my "other reality".

As much as I love my daydreams, they've become a real addiction that has had a lot of negative consequences on my life.  I'm starting to believe in myself a lot more, and the fact is they're holding me back.  I'm outgrowing my need for them, but I still can't stop.  I have so many hopes and dreams that I didn't before.  It really feels like I can accomplish some things.........but not if I can't get my head out of the clouds.  It's hard to imagine, but if I could stop, I would.  I'm going to keep trying to improve my outer life in the hopes that they'll just fade.  I need to try and move on and leave them behind.

I used to want to be rid of mine, but now... no way.

Sure, sometimes daydreaming sucks up precious time and energy. But it also gets me through some very rough patches. As long as I can harness it for its positive uses, and as long as I can still engage in "real life" as much as I feel necessary and enjoyable, I'm sure as hell hanging on to the daydreaming.
