Does anyone else still have imaginary friends?
They are all basically the majority are my 'Family' and come my "Friends" and I talk to them about things I can't talk to anyone about (even though I should be supposed to!), and do things with them that I would love to do with my actual friends!
They didn't exist anymore for about a year from ages 10-11, and then they came back - all my friends in school would only do things with me if it was something they wanted to do, we never did anything I exclusively wanted to do, and my feelings were never taken seriuously because my friends all have more 'serious' or 'dertimental' problems - a few self-harmed and one tried to commit suicide - I have anxiety and when I tried to talk to any of my friends I would always be told not to look for attention because my other friends had it worse!
As for my family - We never really communicate - like we talk to one another and speak about our day and things but we never speak about our feelings; everyone expects everyone else to be a mind reader and I don't have the confidence to speak up and try and fix anything.
So yeah, I think thats why I still have them - especially one of them (His name is Henry) who is my closest friend, and I tell him everything and he is always able to calm me down and make me rationalise (Which I guess its really me doing it for myself)... But my actual question is, is it weird and does anyone else still have imaginary friends?
Thanks in Advance!
