Today, I’ll address the question of how to build real-life relationships when dealing with excessive or maladaptive daydreaming tendencies. If you find it challenging to form real connections due to excessive daydreaming and fear of rejection, and you haven’t worked on your personal issues, how can you improve these real-life connections, including romantic ones?

The first step is to differentiate between the real world and your imagination. Understand that in reality, you might face rejection, and your crush may not reciprocate your feelings. You’ll need to engage with other people in genuine conversations. This separation between the two realms can ease the pressure, preventing self-criticism.

Another important aspect is to take action. Start building real-life connections, go out, and seek people with whom you can relate. Isolating yourself won’t help, as connection is often the antidote to addiction. The more you connect with others, the stronger your sense of belonging becomes. Instead of distancing yourself due to feeling different, embrace the opportunity to find a community and reach out to others.

Additionally, set realistic expectations. Don’t carry the expectations from your imaginary world into the real world. Understand that in reality, people may not always respond positively or respect your boundaries. It’s crucial to take care of yourself and be prepared for the complexities of the real world.

To cope with the temptation of fantasizing about your crush or a relationship, you must address real-life issues. Dealing with these matters in your imagination won’t suffice; it’s essential to tackle them in the real world.
