My Fantasy World
I'm a 16 year old girl.
My day dreaming days began when I was around 11 or 10 years old. For me, it was always a form of escape from my life. I suppose I'm too imaginative. At first, I read Harry Potter and fell in love with the books. I tried placing myself in that world, which I guess is pretty normal for many Potter fans and even for any fan of any book series which they love. Sometimes fans really do try to put themselves in a world created by a favourite author and I was young so I didn't think much of it at all.
However, this became my refuge. As I grew up, and turned 14, I created a far more complex fantasy world. I created an ideal version of myself and when reading up the symptoms of maladaptive daydreaming online, realised I had many of it's symptoms. I love day dreaming the most when I'm running up or down stairs, or moving or pacing.
My current fantasy world was influenced by many things: movies, books, songs, situations, ideas. I would explain it but I feel so embarrassed because my fantasy world is just so juvenile sometimes. I basically created an alternative world where individuals from reality are picked and have assigned roles in that universe. Time moves differently in that world. You could be gone for years but when you return to your own world, you're back in that moment when you left. O.o I know, it's confusing.
There are swords, mercenaries, fortresses, blood, The reason swords are used is because guns and such weapons are of no use in that world as humans tend to be more resilient to them. :/ And there many characters who I have created. These characters are so different, so realistic to me that I am sometimes just surprised that they don't even exist.
But honestly, some people would call this a problem. In some ways, it's a blessing. Think about it, you can never be bored and it's a great way to show your creativity. As long as it doesn't interfere in your normal life.....it's not a problem, right? y
