    I'm So Happy This Group Exists!

    I'm relatively normal. OR I like to think so. Whatever that means. Atleast, people don't think I'm crazy. But I DEFINITELY have this imaginary world thing going on. It's literally a world where I go to EVERY day for a bit, when I'm alone in my room, or zoned out on the metro. And...

    I Daydream a Lot.

    I love to daydream. I just love imagining myself being someone different than I am in real life. Love imagining things I would do. I daydream when I listen to music a lot. I just close my eyes, imagine myself dancing and being in the center of attention, being pretty and happy. I...

    Inside My Mind

      In most lives we tend to not want to believe the truth. When in the presence of reality it hard to cope with the "criticism" that reality gives. The will to want to change the little imperfections in my reality is what creates sanity within my wits. Realizing...

    Reality Is Such A Cliche!

    In reality you are only one person, with one history, one future, one soul. Tell me, what kind of sane person can keep to that? I don't think there is such a person! When I feel unloved, the perfect man is always waiting for me. Tall and strong with raven black hair, wearing...

    My Imaginary World Is Not Just A World

    I act out situations in my head. I don’t mean practicing in front of a mirror for an interview, or planning my actions for certain occasions, I mean playing pretend, although that makes it sound petty. When I’m alone, and sure that no one will hear or see me, I invent a world...

    I've been making imaginary alternate realities for years, in which I am a lot different - the way I want to be - and my life is exciting and awesome. I use music a lot when daydreaming; music is very inspiring and conjures a lot of images in my imagination. I wouldn't say it...

    Private Escape

    More often then not, I drift into an imaginary world, where I actually feel safe. As odd as that may sound to some people, it's true. When I was younger, I was tormented and harassed, so I began to retreat inside myself. I began creating this little world, in order to escape...
