Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I've started college recently and I'm aware socialising is a significant part of the process.
I think my MD has caused me to become so internalised in that I don't seek much to appreciate about social interaction in real life, especially as they prefer to converse about the usual matters on a daily basis.
I don't ever blame them, I simply choose not to engage in such matters because I feel as though I don't have anything to add to the conversation where my own life is concerned - not that it's uninteresting, but more like I view it as unimportant. It's only my imagination that I can resonate the most strongly about.
Apart from finding others with common interests, one way to solve this is to somehow incorporate some of the imagination into the everyday conversations. That way, it won't be so much of a "small talk" after all. Have you tried this before, and what were the people's reactions?
Feel free to discuss your experiences of small talk.
