Fictional Thinking About Life..
November 9, 2010 10:11pm CST
Good Morning :) Today I am having a nice thing to share with you guys... Well, I would like to start from my childhood. When I was child I used be ill most of the time and had fever many times with cold and cough. When ever I was not having mom near me, I used to dream in fictional way and thought many time myself as some superman. I used to plan how I will act after getting some super power and how I will take revange from person whom I don't like. Those though used to be for long time like an hour or two. I used to correct also at second time when I used to go through that next time. Those dreams used to give me relief in pain of fever. That habbit got continued after my childhood also and thinking fictional also got broad in the way to think myself singer, proffesor etc.. and later it not only occupied me in my illness, even I started thinking in this way when ever I used to be in dark room alone.. I got much happiness and satisfaction from myself. Some dream were like to come in future or you can say like plan to do...and it helped me too... But most of the time it was useless.. But still I think in this fictional so many times and it gives me happiness for that short of time ... How do you feel about this or Is it ever happaned with you ?

i sincere4frdship you were really a brilliant and innovative child. You remind me a bit of Robert Louis Stevens who wrote moving p oetry about his childhood when he was ill a lot too. Out of his dreams and fictional thinking came his poems that amazed and amused people over the years. Probably your desire for super powers came from being ill and wanting to be super healthy. It was a really healthy way for you to cope at such a young age with b eing ill a lot.What you were doing was helping you to face your real life and not fall apart under it. imagination in a child can be a wondrous thing.Why not capitalize a bit on your fictional thinking now and put that imagining down on paper.A lot of people might like to read that and pay good money for it too.

Thanks for your inspirational words towards my story as many times when I tell this story to my friends they laugh on me .... and some person have said this is some type of illness but I have never believed as I am always having control over it and push these thought in my mind to make myself help and extract my mind from what ever is going around me or inside me which is causing me pain or anything which I don't like... I have planned to write many times ...but I am having much fear as I don't belong from any good educational background and all language, in which I can write are mixed up...as I have not studied all in one language... You can say ...I am not having very command over language and word power is also very poor.... but if I write some day ...you guys will must come to know ... Thanks ...

I used to escape in my own fantasy world when I was a kid and was looking to escape from the dynamics of a very dysfunctional family. I used to put my little radio on and imagine I was a singer on the stage. I guess I still use that escape method nowadays after all these years except now I have an Ipod!

You said same thing which I use to do many times. In previous time I was having FM radio and I used to listen too much, so when ever any songs came there and if that's I like then I just imagines any situation with some person who is near to me...and think of myself being a singer and copying this song...even some times I have thought myself to the original singer of that song ...and imagined the requests and expression from other for that song from me ...lol

I'm 30 years old now, and there are still a lot of times that I fall into my own little fictional world. There are a lot of different reasons that I fall into this world, but the majority of the reason for it is because it helps me to feel like I am in a better place in my life. The majority of the time when I find myself there is when we are really going through a lot of hardship in our lives at home. I think that this is something that is normal for people to do.

I make my own fantasy when i couldn't sleep. Creating a fantasy world lulls me to sleep. When I was young I would think that I was a mermaid and had this really enticing voice. As I grow older I would create fantasies of my prince charming sweeping me off my feet and living in the castles with all the servants and the maids. Up until now I still create fantasies in my mind but I only do this when I couldn't sleep.
