Today, I’ll explain why it’s actually good when reality strikes, making it clear that living your real life is not the same as living in your daydreams. One of the challenges many daydreamers face is the struggle to be realistic. The imaginary world, by its nature, is not grounded in reality; it’s a daydream. Being realistic involves seeing your actual life, recognizing the stresses, neglect, and missed opportunities caused by your daydreams.

When reality hits and you acknowledge that living the life portrayed in your daydreams is not feasible, it’s a significant moment for your personal growth. You have the choice to either continue ignoring reality or take steps to address it. Ignoring it means perpetuating the preference for the imaginary world, neglecting real-life responsibilities.

Instead of ignoring reality, focus on improving aspects of your real life. It doesn’t have to mirror the imaginary world; the goal is improvement and growth. Consider seeking help, going for therapy, taking a walk, or engaging in activities that contribute to your well-being. Reflect on what you can enhance in your real life now that reality has hit you that your life is a mess.

Don’t beat yourself up for not living the life of your daydreams. Instead, ask yourself what improvements you can make to enhance your real life. This mindset shift can lead to a better life, even if it doesn’t match the pleasures of the imaginary world. Working on yourself and making these improvements can bring a sense of bliss and autonomy.

Understanding that reality is distinct from daydreams allows you to appreciate the beauty of real life — its pains, pleasures, wins, betrayals, and the ongoing journey of self-improvement. Embrace reality, face it, and find joy in the unique experiences it offers.
