Reality Testing with Shadows
I see shadows. I have been experimenting with what may help with these shadows. I don’t believe that they are real anymore. And the only real way to get better is by believing that they aren’t real.
There are several ways that I reality test the shadows. The first way is that I take my glasses off. When I take my glasses off, the shadows are crisp and clear but the rest of my surroundings are blurry. The way that I interpret this is by thinking that the blurry things are from the real world, while my mind is projecting the sharp objects that are not real.
Another way that I reality test is by interacting with them. For example, I remember handing a shadow a piece of paper. He didn’t take it, but just stood there. With this, I reasoned that either the shadow wasn’t real or he was really rude and unresponsive.
With a conclusion of them not being real, this left me much more relaxed.
