- Adult Baby
- Diaper Lover
HiHi all. Today I dressed up (diapers, bib, onesie, bottle etc) and in the middle of eating my goldfish this sudden wave of sadness and loneliness came over me. Has anyone ever felt that way when in little space or dressing up as an AB?
I haven't read all the replies, so sorry if I am repeating what someone else has said. It sounds to me that you regressed. When you are letting your inner child come to the fore, it can come with emissions. I would encourage you to stay with them. Ask your inner child why they are feeling that way? What is the memory attached to this?
There are several ways you can do this; sometimes, it just asking the question? If your inner child is old enough, you could try to see if they would write it down or draw a picture. In doing this, you will understand why you feel that way; I use regression as a meditation a lot; dropping down into Little space, letting Siysiy have his playtime helps me cope with adulting.
I hope you find the reason for feeling the way you did. I had written this when I researched being a Little and having Pester Pan syndrome.
It is a journey of self-discovery to trust and to love yourself. And sometimes, it is more about that journey than the destination.
Sending time in Little space means coming out of the adult world for a time, so you can: -
Rest and reflect on yourself and what is going on around you. There may emotions that may come to the surface as you regress; they may be negative ones. Anger, sadness or fear. As well as positive emotions such as hope and joy.
Negative emotions do need to be dealt with, as in the Words of Yoda.
"Fear leads to anger; anger leads to hate, hate. This leads to suffering."

Everyone has emotions. And some emotions are nice, like joy or happiness, but some emotions are not so nice and might be hard to deal with, such as fear, anger, or sadness.
The first thing is to try to identify your emotions; trying to think of one emotion that covers what you are feeling is very hard. So, what I do is see if the feeling will fit one of these three.
1) Am I feeling sad about something or someone?
2) Or, am I feeling worried about something or someone?
3) Or, am I feeling angry about something, or am I angry at someone?
By doing things, hopefully, you can work out what you are feeling and then you can come up with a plan to deal with what it is that making you feel this way.
If I am feeling worried about something or someone, this could be a “what if” question. “what if they don’t like me.” This for us littles is quite common and can stop us from going to new places and meeting new people.
If I am feeling sad, it could be because I remember something that I have lost in the past or something that I could not have.
