I Create My Own Reality

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 350 People

    As Adam Savage Said:

    "I reject reality and substitute my own". There's a line between "reality" and "fantasy". I like to feel I walk that line every day of my life.

    It Took A While Though

    Some people are surprised to see that this is not the case with everyone. I used to attempt to live in other peoples reality because it was simply too hard to face my own at times.

    Jellyfish

    My closest friend in high school used to joke that I was a jellyfish. By that she meant spineless, and she was right. I had no skill or talent for confrontation, and little experience with it either. At school I kept so quiet that there was little chance of making waves, good or...

    My World In My Mind

    It started when I met two girls. I was alone in my house, my father is working and comes home rarely, my mother and brother isn't at home and they'll be back tomorrow morning. I don't remember what we talk about, but they said they were assigned to make me Immortal, and I agreed...

    And So Do You!

    What is real? Is it something you can see? Something you can touch, smell, taste, or hear? Perhaps this is the case, if you are convinced that what you have seen and heard is all that it is possible to experience. I remember being secure in the world. I remember trusting my eyes...

    Relative

    I've heard before about how reality is relative. But understanding the concept and practicing the implications are two completely different things. We spend most of our lives (this coming from someone only just reached 20) living in a reality set by others. The reality of our...

    Law of Attraction, Yes!

    I agree with the previous story with Sunnyk. Law of attraction works impeccably. Whatever you think comes to you. We create our own reality. Especially after reading "The Secret", I got very inspired to keep an eye on my thoughts b/c nothing that we think or say escapes...

    The Female King

    The Beads Are Getting Colorful

    Reality is what I create, (re)discover and live. I can play what is happy and with time become happy again. It is almost like when a guitar guy shows how to strum a song ... Who makes the sound if we don’t use our own hands?When things get „dirty“, I step back for a...

    The Decision

    I wake each morning with a knot in stomach, the dreams of the night before too real, too vivd, too true. I open my eyes and fight back tears for transgressions committed oh so long ago. I want to cry. I don't want to cry. I sit quietly and wait for the see saw to tip one way or...

    I Live in a false reality,

    or at least I did. I would play these videogames and read these stories; then I would imagine myself in them, and when I was very lonely those characters would be my friends. For a while stuffed animals were my only physical friends. When that reality started to break I would...

    Whether We Like It Or Not

    Our life is an accumulation of our choices, behaviors, and attitudes. We have to take responsibility for it. How can anyone change anything in their life without taking responsibility? If you don't take control of your life someone else will.
