    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.

    Sometimes I Do

    Carl Jung used to do this. I think he wrote at least one book on the subject, while losing touch with reality intentionally for a long period of time. I consider him the expert. His friends thought he was going crazy, he had to point out that it was on purpose. I guess when...

    A Good Place to Write.

    Most of my life I wrote my life story over and over. Experiences that I can't forget and feel discussed with. After years and years of this I began writing individual stories on how some of those experiences could have been different. In this way I was able to escape the reality...

    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.
