Sometimes…I prefer dreaming to reality.
In dreams anything can happen. You have no worries of money, no thoughts of the future, nothing. In a way it’s like being a child again, unaware of the outside world and all the bad alongside it. It can also allow you the freedom to live in the moment with no restrictions…living in the moment but outside reality. Of course these are all good dreams. Nightmares on the other hand are very different. In some cases it can even put fears you never knew you had into your everyday life, bringing them alive. So it’s best to just keep them away, or even invest in a dream catcher to prevent bad dreams!
The main beauty I find in dreams is that you can occasionally adapt them or even control them, given that you realise you are dreaming. Which occasionally is something that I can do. This is also quite helpful in nightmares though, I mean if your being chased by a zombie you can imagine a gun in your pocket and boom….shot it right in the head. Problem Solved.
Dreaming is just another of my many attempts to escape from reality. Something I see to do a lot of the time…but life can’t wait forever.
