Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
my bf was really depressed the other day. I dont really want to say why but he kept saying "i wish i was more like you. you're so normal."
so i decided to tell him about my md to show him how not normal I am. He was actually really interested and wanted to know more about it and my daydream and characters. He said it wasnt weird at all, and he thinks its cool that i have an escape from reality like that. I went through my sketchbook with him (hes seen it before but now i can actually tell him who everyone is ) and i showed him characters ive drawn and tried to explain my daydream to him. I kept saying "this is so stupid....this si so embarassing" and he kept telling me to stop because he thought it was really interesting and wanted to hear more. So i gave him a brief summary, and he said next time hes over he wants to hear more. It kinda of feels good, getting to have a conversation with someone about your characters, cause that never happens.
he then told me that sometimes he likes to daydream about him being jerry seinfeld or abed from the show community, and he tries to handle situations like they would. but sometimes he imagines himself has his favourite pro skateboarders. I dont know if he has md or just a big imagination but it was nice talking to him about it. I also like hearing peoples opinions on my characters because it..feels good? i dont know.
anyway, thats all i had to say.
