Do you find yourself day dreaming more often then most? Do you have trouble staying in the moment?
I do! Below are the thoughts of my Community Psychiatric Nurse…
People often daydream, float from reality to non reality, because we have had emotional, painful and bad experiences in life. We want to get away from them. Short term, it’s a quick fix. Long term, the more we lock our feelings away, it transforms from a coping strategy to a problematic reality.
My interpretation is that subconsciously my personal dissociation is a protective shield. Only I have become so reliant on it, I have lost control. Perhaps it’s time to break that shield and allow myself to be vulnerable in order to fight, jump the hurdle? The only trouble is, so far… I don’t know how!
