This may be kind of weird, but Im sure there are other people who know what Im talking about.
Have you ever enjoyed a movie so much that you become almost obsessed with it, or a particular character in it? Like for example you start thinking that the movie was real and that you feel so drawn to a character that you want to be that character or be part of his/her life?
Or do you ever feel so attached to the story that you never get bored watching it?
Im not going to name the movies that have made me feel this way because Id be too embarrassed :o :). But its like sometimes you can’t get it out of your head, especially when you are feeling hopeless or lonely or whatever, and you feel that either the character or movie provides you with something that you are longing for, or in some way it gives you a boost or inspiration. You even “gloss over” some of the plotholes in the film or justify in your head the certain flaws you noticed, so it keeps the impression that the film was almost real in your mind. I also think that its because I have really related to a particular character or the situation (s)he is in.
I think that deep down you know that its not real and the real life actors/actresses are not anything like the charaters they played etc.
I think that feeling like this may be a symptom of loneliness and one’s longing for the love and consolation God and also the feeling of belonging.
Sorry, for the weirdness of this post, but I guess I just had to put it out there!
