Hi. I’m 14 and I’ve been daydreaming since I was 12. I daydream about being my idealised self and being a famous singer or actress. I get a lot of my inspiration for daydreaming from the media but I also daydream about bad things I see like being shot in a shooting or being abused by a partner. It always ends up with me being admired or seen as strong or brave. I feel really bad for doing this as people actually suffer with things irl and I enjoy daydreaming about them happening to me. I feel horrible and guilty. I don’t want to tell anyone as they will think I’m a disgusting person. Please help!
Hi I am new at this but OK, I have bad and daydreams too and sometimes I wonder why because it's supposed to be an escape but I imagine bad thing's happening to me all the time but of course at the end of the dream I end up as an idolized and strong character (in my head) and I also feel guilty because I know that I am anything but that and I fear that if I keep daydreaming that I will never really become that person I'll just have an idea of it in my head but that will never be me.
