Do you have a fantasy life?

A "different reality" you live in our head?

*your head

No but I know you do from the way you misremember the past.

No but many people I work with do, they are so deluded!

No. Unfortunately, I live in reality and it is not rosy by any means. I wish I could have a fantasy life. I am too realistic and too pessimistic.

Yes, I pretend that I don't live in the hole that I do. In my head I live somewhere else entirely.

Yes, Op, i do. I have since about 6 or 7. I had a bad childhood and it comforted me when I went to sleep at night. Fast forward decades later, and I still do it.

In my fantasy life, I have the ability to choose 3 wishes that would benefit the entire planet. (For some reason I am only allowed to have 3)

If I'm stuck in traffic or really zoning out, I will go back and switch up which wishes I would choose on behalf of the planet.

I have no idea when this started but I have been doing this for a few years now. Weird, I know.

Yes, I think about the things I could have done differently, the people I didn't tell I loved them and/or wanted them and wonder what if.

I live alone and am alone most of the time with my two cats. We have a rich fantasy life that is acted out each day.

I was just thinking about this the other day. I'm so bad about imagining all kinds of different realities for myself instead of just working with what I have. And kind of like r6, I've been doing it for as long as I can remember.

I was questioning myself about two things in particular: Do other people do this? And will I ever mature out of the habit (26 y.o.)?

Does writing unpublished novels count?

R6 just wrote my thoughts down for me. It helped me to get to sleep at night. It still does.

I am Mrs. Bradley Cooper.

Yes, OP, I have an elaborate "alternate" life in my head: different relationships, job, home, etc. I know most people will find it sad and pathetic, but it works for me. I don't think I'm crazy, as I'm totally aware as to which one is real and which one is fantasy.
