does anyone else have this other self they’ve created in their mind that is not really exactly you irl but is more like what you want to be and has a life that continues in your head with like weird continuing daydreams but they’re not perfect or anything and wow i forget where i was going with this


So, I was just thinking about going to do my pacing ritual thing, when this post showed up. I googled it, and:

"Many people have social anxiety and/or depression along with maladaptive daydreaming… 79% of those self-identified as having excessive daydreams had a kinesthetic repetitive movement accompany their daydreaming, such as pacing, rocking, tapping, or shaking an object. Many others also move their hands around and make facial expressions: laughing, crying, whispering, and gesturing with hands [because they are trying to impersonate the characters themselves]. Listening to music while daydreaming is common and hearing music may trigger a fantasy. A repetitive movement may be articulated to music while daydreaming."

For, I’d say at least half of my life, I’ve had this thing I do. I’ll listen to music, and pace around my bedroom. I’ll do it for hours at a time, sometimes. All the while, daydreaming, of course. I actually get anxious, when I get the urge to do it, and can’t. I didn’t know there was a word for it haha. I’ve always been secretive about it. It just always felt like something embarrassing. I can’t even remember why I started doing it, but it’s been a regular part of my life for so long. It’s nice to know it’s not just me. lol
