im writing about this for the first time so im a little nervous. i discovered MD a few days ago in a random video. i was really nervous when i realized it was describing a very large part of my life. it was the first time i faced the harms of dreaming and living in these dreams. it has always been a relief for me, a way to escape, but now my perspective has changed a lot. but still very confused about this. :( the wall it built between me in the real world turns me into a nervous, insecure person, but being in my own world with my own people makes me feel safe. and happy, neither real things. actually i'm still undecided about how i will feel about this but i hope this from can help me. i have lived in dreams since my childhood, but i can say that this has been at the center of my life since the beginning of high school. first, i started not to dream with what I wanted, then i tried to live my dreams instead of my real life. i was suddenly talking to myself in the crowd, looking at an empty spot. it's a little worse nowadays, you know, quarantine cases. as a result, this situation is long out of my control, but i still haven't decided if this is harmful. i didn't even think it was a 'problem' until I watched the video about MD. this worries me. i should try to get rid of something stolen from my life, right? i can not. i often felt lonely about it, unless we count children much younger than me. it's good to know that i'm not alone after all.
Welcome. Don't worry, it's normal to feel conflicted about it all. Just hang around for a bit, there's no need to make a decision now. Now that you've been exposed to the idea and can look at it through another lens it will become more clear with time. Maybe it's fine, maybe not. We're with you while you figure things out.
