    Is it better to be lost in thought or face Reality?

    I often find that life lived in fantasy is more entertaining than reality... Reality sucks, because things don't always go your way, but is it better to spend time staring off into space (or into a pixelized screen, as the case may be) than actually live your life? I know that I'm going to get a lot of affirmative answers to that question, this is, after all, a Diablo forum... Just food for thought, though...

    Things should not "always go your way". What the heck do you want? To be god so you always get what you want?

    You can never truly appreciate sanity and reality until you have experienced insanity.

    Well thats what i think.

    How can we appreciate something when we haven't been without it.

    We all take oxygen for granted dont we?

    A bit of both. Imagination is a good thing, especially on long bus drives.

    Have you experienced insanity? I've only ever experienced a mild, self-induced insanity.


    Nope.

    Um... yes, actually... but that didn't go my way either, now did it? So all I can do is whine and complain on forums, and have fun putting my name as "Undisputed Ruler of All"....

    I'm a dreamer myself. Reality sucks. I have such fun in my happy little places in my head.

    Nope. But then again, I dont fully appreciate life.

    And Find me one person who regularly praises and says thanks that he was born on a planet that has oxygen. No one even notices that how essential it is for us to survive, ergo it is taken for granted.

    Lost in translation

    To be lost in thought is to be in retreat, to be in denial, or to be in an escape mode. To face reality is more mature and ultimately more pleasurable because no one can accuse you of being lost in thought and having to face reality (then, you can afford to be "lost in thought").

    What happens if you prefer to enjoy the luxeries of life WHILE you play videogames?? such as "enjoying" a woman?

    I'm with Dave there!

    But honestly, instead of just wasting your time daydreaming, why not figure out WHY your life sucks so much and...I dunno...take steps to make things better for yourself?

    Worked for me...

    What is reality? Well, whatever it is, it's still there. I do both but I like being lost in thought a lot more.

    Why choose? You can have your feet on the ground and your head in the clouds. It works great for me. I see no reason to prefer one over the other.

    I think people seem to look at this too simply. Im definately a face the facts kinda guy, I always have a good handle on whats goin on and what that means and everything. As opposed to people like my girlfriends mother who live on their own little planet and just kinda "bippity bop" through life.

    But at any given moment if you really wanted to know whats on my mind you wouldnt think so.

    So I vote both.
