Reality vs. dreamland

Once my friend asked me that whether she should be living in reality or in her dreamland. She asked me this question because she finds her sweet dreamland more appealing than the harsh reality. This again swayed me into an ocean of thoughts. What concluded was that we dream when we are sleeping once we wakes up, our dream vanishes away and that’s the time when we have to face reality. Dreaming neither helps us with lessons about life. And we can’t sleep forever. After a while we have to get up and face the reality. Dreaming wont either feed our stomach. So it’s better to face the reality no matter how harsh or unpleasant it is. Dreaming is just like running away from reality which is not a solution but which only leads us deeper into problems. So let’s choose the way which will help us later in life, something like the path less travelled by.

  2. True =) Though it circulates around one point called ‘escapism’. If possible, give a read to latest post at my blog because it’s on same topic.

    I, somehow, believe that dreaming is NOT bad if it’s just to take a break for a while but being inclined to ‘only dreams’ never helps a person!=) It rather makes him an escapist and a coward.

    “All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes to make them come true.” 🙂
