My son is asleep. My husband is cooking dinner. I could daydream right now. I think daydreaming protects me from taking risks in my life. It easier to daydream that you are a writer than to try to actually be one. It is easier to daydream that you are in the throes of deep romantic love than create it in real life. In my day dream world I can control if I get rejected, not in the real world. My decision is to not daydream right now. It is a small triumph that could lead to others small triumphs. Then, I have to decide what to do. Becoming fluent in Spanish has been on my bucket list so I think I will learn done Spanish verbs before dinner is ready. Namaste

You put this in a very nice way. I also daydream about things that I don't do in real life - doctor, romance, commanding an army, etc. It's not because I fear doing all these things in real life. I actually don't want to do any of this in real life. I don't want to be a doctor, lead an army, etc. I have a clear separation of imagination from reality. My DD character is different from me in all sorts of ways.

I can very much relate to your post. I also think that the reason for daydreaming is fear - fear of doing something in reality. It seems that for other people it is much easier to do something - we need much more energy doing these things. But you are right, don't give up, always look for new goals of doing things that you like. Enjoy your time with your family.
