Where wild minds come to rest
One of the causes of my daydreaming is idealism. A supportive family and environment made it to possible to grow sheltered form the harsh realities of life . Hollywood movies are full of stories , with happy endings where events happen for a reason leading to a specific positive outcome. In real life , it is rarely the case.
Daydreaming can lead to inaction, since action can potentially disturb our fantasy . Whereas Inaction leave us with so many opportunities. To an average person , this might sounds insane, but a compulsive daydreamer , it is subconscious and present itself at all time.
The remedy would accepting reality as it is , and take CONCRETE action to improve our circumstances no matter the discomfort. Low discomfort( emotional pain, physical ..) tolerance is usually the main reason tend to daydream. Allowing ourselves to experience emotional pain whether it is shame, disappointment , can do wonders .
