Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I'm sure I'm not the only on here who feels like their life is a movie and your simply watching it, mindlessly going through the motions of a routine day. Every once in awhile we break out and realize, "Wow, this is real life, shouldn't I be focasing more?" And similar things like that before drifting back into the slow dream walk. Other times we break out from adrenaline.
My point is that I find it really hard to live in the moment, because I'm only half there, and the other half is off in space pondering something or other. Being a teenager I find it maybe a little unusual. Most kids my age only live in the moment and don't think about the past, future, what could be, what it's like to be someone else, or imagine much at all.
Do you guys ever find it bothersome? Are we wasting our life away dreaming, or are we simply unsatisfied with our world so we decide to think up another? Also, how do we focus more on the present, any ideas?
