Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
As with many other MDers my fantasy self and my real self tend to be extremely different people. Let's start with me in the real world:
In the real world I get no respect at all and I'm very quiet and reserved unless I'm with people I like. But true friends are hard to come by because most people I meet treat me like I'm a lower life form who doesn't deserve their attention. Many times they will even pretend they can't hear me speaking and go to talk to people who are more worth their time I guess. I'm also no good at anything, I have almost no natural talent except for the talent to automatically suck at anything I try xD
I'm extremely confident in my abilities, while I'm not talented at everything I try I am at least competent. People need me and crave my presence, whether it be to help accomplish some task or just hang out. I have everything that I don't in the real world, good looks, ability, excitement, happiness, etc. I guess you would say I'm actually worth something in my daydreams as opposed to the *shudders* real world. I guess the key word here would be hope, I actually can hope for something better in my daydreams, whether it be some new adventure, or some other new experience.
I do believe I've tried to compare these two things before, but this is it in way more detail.
