This issue is something I've been thinking about for a while, so here goes - Do you think ABDLs are generally very sensitive individuals?
I would say that I've always been a really sensitive person. Partly due to OCD, and partly due to my own nature, I find it difficult to deal with things which are upsetting, or which I feel are unfair about the world in general. Sure, I know nobody likes feeling hurt or screwed over, but things seem to stick with me to a great extent, and I sometimes find the harsh reality of life very difficult to cope with.
I believe that one of the main reasons I like being an AB/Little so much, is that almost everything is geared towards positivity. TV shows for littles encourage you to learn and praise you for knowing things. Talking toys focus on saying happy things, singing relaxing lullabies or wanting to be cuddled. There's also the fact that babies love to be tactile and huggy (qualities which I very much still possess as an adult) is seen as a good thing, and not as a sign of clinginess.
I increasingly think that for individuals who are easily upset or have a real aversion to the issues in life, ABDL is a perfect way to escape not just into happiness and innocence, but a world where positivity and celebration of one's abilities (however natural or unremarkable) is everywhere. For me, being an ABDL is largely about having kind and encouraging messages promoted to me - something which I don't think most adults experience in their day-to-day lives.
