I can understand why you’d want to regress if you already have interest in some of the common regression items like diapers. Regression (aka “littlespace”) isn’t something you can force yourself to experience, and being a little is a personality type so it’s not something you can just learn. Nobody, not even yourself, can teach you how to develop into this personality type. You’re either a regressor or you’re not, and either way it’s okay.
A personality type is how you perceive, interpret, and interact naturally. It’s something that’s always present about an individual.
The thing though is that the regressive trait isn’t about items or about an experience.
I’m terms of becoming immersed into a regressive experience, please know that many
Littles, if not most, don’t actually
become so immersed as the stories claim. Those stories are our community’s version of romance novels.
Regression fluctuates though. Age regression is a part of a personality and not an experience. Being a Little is scattered throughout daily life, sometimes in mostly unnoticeable ways. Sometimes a Little will feel more regressive than other times. A lot of times it’s much like a mood that can change in intensity, and definitely isn’t transformative to where you forget who you are or what you’re capable of doing. People who say they literally become a child again or forget completely about their adult lives are fibbing.
So, there is no magical transformation where you literally become a child again by completely forgetting reality. Only people with mental health conditions experience that. That isn’t what we’re talking about here. Regression, or “littlespace” as its frequently termed, isn’t a mental health condition, handicap, or a cognitive challenge.
It can be really easy to fall into believing the prominent RP storyline in the community is real or can be real. It can be easy to believe the stories you read, especially when friends are claiming they’re true even when we know better. The truth is, Littles can, and should, be fully functioning adults. The truth is, we can’t and don’t live in fantasy, and a Little absolutely can lead a fulfilling life as an adult (most of the time). The truth is, regression doesn’t make you suddenly become an actual child, a different person, or incapable in any way.
I’d say that you may be a Little if you’re already drawn to regressive hobbies and have interests that align with childhood. The happiness you have may be that regressive expression. You may want to continue educating yourself and spend more time in your self-discovery. Our resources
