    Prelude To A Tragedy

    Have you ever just daydreamed?

    Daydreaming Too Much?

    I daydream a lot. Often to the point where reality gets blurred with imagination. If I imagine that I'm someone else, I can't help but talk like them for a few minutes. If I imagine that I break my foot, I can't help but limp around for a moment or two. It takes me a while to...

    Daytime Wanderings

    My mind simply drifts off...into a wooded area. A small foot path is worn into the ground. Flowers tangled in plants, the tall grass waves slightly, vines and ivy link across the tops of trees and hang down slowly swaying in the wind. The sound of insects and birds fill in around...

    Returning to reality

    after a daydream makes everything seem a little more impossible, yet I continue to do it. They come when you least expect it. When the conversation dies and a room falls silent, or when the idea of you is the only thing which can help me sleep. For second, a minute, an hour I...

    I'm glad I day dream a lot tbh,

    idc what people think, if they don't day dream, then they must not have a good, creative, imagination like I do, after all, day dreaming can make you imagine nice things, even at a bad stage in life. So be proud to day dream with your creative endless imagination.

    I daydream because my surroundings are sh-t.

    I space out a lot! I often stop in the middle

    of my sentences trying to remember what I was going to say. When I go to a new place it's not uncommon that I get lost because I don't pay enough attention to my surroundings. I don't know what's wrong with me.

    everything. I probably daydream too much, I'll even act out what I daydream sometimes without even noticing, which can be really embarrassing... But I love it. My mind is my sanctuary, I am constantly living in my head.

    It is said talking to yourself

    and daydreaming are both habits that promote compassion and empathy and help your mind in other ways. My wife just enjoys embarrassing me by saying "are you talking to yourself again?"
