Where wild minds come to rest
I have been a maladaptive daydreamer my whole life...or ever since I could remember. But honestly, I don't remember much. I have close to zero recollection of my childhood. I don't remember last week hardly at all. I have wonderful short term memory, kinda. I remember important things like eating, sleeping, and going to school. But I don't have any memory of little things. I will set my phone down and walk away, I come back in a frantic search to find my phone because I don't remember where I put it.
I don't have any inspiring words of how you can "overcome" it this time. Sorry, but I want your responses. Does anyone else have the worst memory? If so, do you have a story to tell? I'd love to hear it.
Anyways, I do have a theory (some habits don't change). I believe that since we have to remember two lives and have one brain, we subconsciously choose to forget the real world to leave room to remember our beloved fantasy world. This makes sense to me because I can clearly remember nearly all my daydreams, but I don't hardly remember the real world.
I want your opinion. Does the same thing happen to you? Does it make sense? It's just a theory, but there might be some truth behind it.
