Does stress throw you into little space?

So, had things in my life throw me for another loop yesterday and big me wanted absolutely nothing to do with it.  Sucked it up and was big until the kids went to bed and then I just vegged sorta half in little space and half just hoping I'd fall asleep so I wouldn't have to keep thinking big thoughts.  Eventually had time to talk to somebody special and that helped immensely!  Slipped into little space accidentally but he was happy I did.

 

Fast forward to this morning and the crap that big me had to deal with yesterday is still in the back of my mind but little me is pretty insistent on getting her way today and getting to play.  Already did surgery on a stuffy (dog nommed her foot) and got all but one of them together for a group picture for my somebody special.  He decided I need more stuffy friends =).  Probably also going to color today, or maybe even draw since the kids stole my ipad and that's where my favorite coloring app is.  I haven't drawn in ages.  Haven't felt the urge.  Is it because of the stress that little me is being so loud?  Or knowing that me going into little space is encouraged?  Maybe both?  

 

Does anybody else have stress throw them into little space or am I just weird?

I think it's totally natural to seek comfort and a sense of escape in things that you enjoy! Especially during stressful periods of time. For some people, that means shutting the world out for a few hours to read in peace, or maybe going for a walk, or visiting a friend for a chat. For others, it means slipping into a Little headspace. 

 

It's completely, absolutely, 100% normal! As long as it does not negatively impact on your life, it's a healthy thing to do. ^_^

 

You only need to worry about it if it begins to impact negatively on your life, such as if you feel frequently incapable of doing "grown up/adult/Big" things. By that, I don't mean sexual activity, but just normal, everyday things that maybe we don't exactly enjoy doing while we're feeling little. Like if aspects in your life other than DDlg begin to be neglected - that is when we should reevaluate the situation. It's healthy and totally fine to enjoy feeling Little, but at the end of the day, we have to all be responsible adults, too! :)

 

That being said, you sound like you have things completely under control! :) It sounds like a very healthy and refreshing escape! 

 

Whenever I'm stressed out, I'll catch myself unconsciously doing more Little-related things. Like I'll catch myself sucking my thumb, or twirling my hair with my fingers, or wanting to snuggle a lot, hehe.

Oh yeah. Stress definitely throws me into little space. I've been dealing with some things lately and all I've wanted to do, was to be little. Like really little and wanting to forget about everything and just be with daddy. But I always know when I have to be a big girl and I hate it. Sometimes I wish I was little all the time and not have a care in the world.

Uh huh! I almost allways slip into little space when the stress or pressure gets too much. If my Big self is not at home, then my little self trys reeealllly hard to stay still until im at home :)

Same here! Going into Little headspace totally helps me clear my head of big responsibilities. Sometimes instead of running away from the big things it helps me to accomplish the big things, actually. 

 

For example, I had to make an important phone call and I have bad phone anxiety so little me decided that it was a good time to play pretend, and to pretend that I was a big important head honcho and I acted my way through the phone call. Boom, done. Less anxiety, more fun for me, and I got something done. 3 birds with one stone. :D

Stress actually keeps me from getting into little / pet space :c 
I have really bad anxiety, so I can't be my little self nearly as often as I'd like to be.

Stress def sends me into little space more often. Being in little space gives me a break and let's me process the problem little bits at a time.

Normally my Big side will handle the situation first and then later on I slip into my little space after to work anything else other. But i have noticed my little side sneaking out with little frustrations like a mini tantrum because I have to write an essay etc.

Totally, Liitle space is there because it's comfortable and loved, when I become over stressed I definitely slip into little space c: It tends to help me relax and decompress until I'm ready to confront my Big me problem c: Completely understandable c:

For me, it really just depends. Sometimes I'll be super stressed and I can go home and eat a kid cuisine, have a baby bath and color. Other times, I feel that I really want to get into little space but my stress won't let me.

Yesss being stressed or depressed always puts me in little space, I kind of just shut down and want to be taken care of and have no worries and just color and eat cookies and watch cartoons. But then it becomes more of an ordeal for me because i don't really have anyone to seek out comfort to so sometimes I end up being in little space and upset and it's not fun lol
