Eventually reality must be faced. It becomes very important to recognize what is, as opposed to what you want or what you fear. Often, facing reality turns out to be not nearly as bad as you thought it might. And don’t beat yourself up for taking a break from reality once in a while. Just remember that you don’t want to live in non-reality for too long. Treat it like a pity party: throw a non-reality break for yourself sometimes, and set a time limit on it.
