Childhood Fantasies and Meaning

Though it has been in a constant state of change throughout my fifty-two years of existence, I still engage in the same fantasy, a mental exercise, or whatever term you wish to use since I was at least eight years old, if not younger. Does anyone know if engaging in the same fantasy/mental exercise for most of one's life means anything?

In it, I'm essentially living on a select number of items I'm able to ...

Mental Health in the Current Climate

We are all aware of the world's shortages and where our economy has been heading since 2020. There are some things I can't control, and therefore, I will not worry about them. Nevertheless, I believe that anyone facing mental health challenges is more disadvantaged than the average person in our current environment. Therefore, what can we do as we face even more shortages? I don't want to be caught by surprise nor unprepared.

Last year, ...

Do People Still Want to Be a Child?

In the past, people talked about wanting to remain a child. Since I've returned to this forum, I haven't seen any current discussion on that topic. Do people still feel that way, or have they moved on?

While I want to be a female child on this side of eternity, that probably won't happen. Ideally, I want to be a female child in Heaven, a cute, adorable child. There's nothing in Heaven I want more ...

Advice on my living situation.

Hello! Please tell me, if this is the wrong place for me to say those things or if I did something wrong, if so I wholeheartedly apologize. My personal hopes are that I would be able to find someone who has gone through the same and who found a possible solution for themselves, that I could try. After many therapists and medication, I thought that this would be the best way to better my life ...

Life is partial towards me.

I do not know what life holds me for me. I am at this stage of my life where I get an urge to give up very frequently. I feel happy at the moment and the very next moment I feel to just run and there is always a feeling something going on inside. What if this does not happen. I feel like ending is the solution to all. I am that disappointed . Today ...

Questioning my own mind. Cussing warning!

Hi, this is my first post on here, and tbh I don't know wtf I'm doing. But, I've wondered this for a long time and I'm too afraid to ask this to anyone in real life.. But if I have the feeling that I've been abused when I was younger (I'm 16) is it possible I was? Or am I just being a stupid attention seeking little b. I struggle with trusting myself and there's ...

Why do I feel like this and how to make it stop?

I am a great student, I know my stuff I tell you and have results to match. But when night comes a feeling of pain completely engulfs my heart, it feels like it is on fire, and for a very long time darkness envelops me, and then there and then I wish I could cease to exist...every now and then when I hear people talking and laughing in the distance I get very scared, I ...

Derailment: Feeling Disconnected From Your Past Self

Do any of you recognise this??

I have had this all my life I think, and I really struggle with my identity because of it. I feel like each time my life falls apart I lose myself. I never become the same me as before "things went wrong". And I feel I am just so many broken parts of me, so many parts of me too painful to connect to or return to, because of ...

What is this? *TW* (understanding dark concepts)

I had no idea where to put this. I was just wondering if anyone knew what this was and what I could do?
Basically, I have difficulty understanding multiple different concepts. For example, rape. I don't understand what's so bad about it because everything bad that could end up happening from it is something I'm okay with. I do abuse myself somewhat, so the pain and possible physical scarring? I don't care. Mental scarring? I ...

People Are Not Responding Like They Can't Everywhere I Go!

I don't know know what's going on but people are acting out of character, they don't respond or speak, or return my text. It doesn't matter if I'm in person or over the phone. I went into my bank 30 minutes before closing just to ask a few questions. I was not greeted he just looked at me. I stopped made eye contact and stood there and looked he didn't talk, like I a mind ...
