If our fantasies are somewhat inspiring and with the possibility of being useful in the future, should we not let go of it?

I have not let go of mine partly for this reason. I'm trying to use my fantasies for better purposes such as writing a fun fanfic. Sometimes my fantasies reveal insights about myself that I didn't previous know about.

fantasies and day dreaming are great- only the truly creativity- deprived don't day dream at all. between us, dreaming too little is probably worse than day dreaming too much. the problem is when it becomes excessive and keeps you away from the real world. if you learn how to keep the balance, it could be a gift, I guess. 

There's nothing wrong with daydreaming if it has a positive effect. After all everybody has hopes and ambitions in life and if your daydreaming reflects a possible scenario for the future then I'd say that's fairly normal. If your daydreaming fuels creativity that's even better.

Daydreaming isn't a bad thing. Even excessive daydreaming isn't a bad thing. If you feel out of control and like your life is dictated and run by it then maybe then it's bad. Ultimately it's down to the individual to decide if they view their daydreaming as bad or not.

it's not really about me but more of an autobiographical novel, but it's full of great intentions, my only problem is that i know the character is not real that's why i'm thinking it's better to write it.... to put it in reality somehow.

Look, I've been daydreaming since ...forever, I'm 38 now, married and I have a son. I could never be the person I am without my daydreaming and I could never have solved certain issues I had in the past without it. When I was a teenager, it had consumed me for a while, and I was pretty depressed because I thought I was crazy. But as the years passed, I controlled it and now I believe that if it doesn't consume you, daydreaming can be a gift.At lest, that's what happened with me.

I've invented characters that talk to me, I pretend that I 'm them, and through them I see various aspects of my character, my work, life in general. I 've become more balanced as a person, because talking as if I was someone else helps me to see things more objectively. In some occasions, some of my "depressing" scenarios have happened -in a way- in my real life, so I was prepared for difficult situations in real life, because I 've already lived them in my mind.

So, yes, I think that if daydreaming helps and inspires us, we should DEFINITELY keep it!
