Where wild minds come to rest

This random thought crossed my mind today. Isn't everyone guilty of trying to escape reality? We go inside our minds and create stories and different lives. 

Other people escape through gaming for hours or binge watching tv shows or films and people escape into books using them to take them into another  world. I sometimes feel I would drown in reality without my daydreams and worried why it was I couldn't cope but I am beginning to think everyone feels the same need to escape but they do it in a more socially acceptable way.

Yes, I agree and have often thought that myself.  The difference seems to be that DDers can’t shut their TVs off or close their books.  Probably closer to alcoholism but doesn’t damage the liver.

I think hardly anyone has ever been plugged into reality full-time. We would all go mad if we constantly focused on everything that's wrong with anything. The very concept of a distraction exists for a reason.
