I Lose Touch With Reality Intentionally

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 81 People

    Daydreaming

    That's one of my favorite ways to relax. When I get bored or when things begin to get a little stressful, I let my mind wander to wherever my mood directs me. Other than my own imagination, I love to read and let the story take me to another place. As long as I return to...

    Sometimes I need to get away,

    I need to escape, but I physically can't. I feel trapped or cornered, or I can't deal with a situation in the moment. I have always just disappeared into my own mind and shut the rest of the world out. They can't touch me. They can't reach me. I can't hear them anymore.

    Lost In My Own World

     I just get fed up with reality and having to face problems sometimes so I just deny them. I distance myself from people and I get lost in my own thoughts.  I don't like reality checks but you have to do it.
