I Am An Escapist and Proud of It

we all need to escape from something sometimes, a marriage, a job, a society, a prison, a religion, a state of mind. escapists of the world unite! 65 People

    Escapism Is A Bit Wrong Word... :)

    ... Because reality has many dimensions to it. I'm constantly escaping the sad confined dimension of what people call "real world" into my fantasy Otherworld. And I am happy like that, and would never want to change it.

    It's Good to Be An Escapist

    You Do This Every Time

      I am an escapist. Could never deal with the things in front of me. Could never commit to the things that mattered most and shut off my brain to all the things that didnt, couldnt, shouldnt and even wouldnt matter. Touch and go in the lives of others, never seeming to be...

    Discovering "Escapism"

    I've been a writer since I was a kid, it's always been my way of coping with the real world when it sucks (which quiet frankly is far too often ...) and it's always proved to be exactly what I needed in difficult times. I had never heard the word "escapist" before until I read a...

    Cut Back

    Playing video games, writing stories, telling stories, watching movies and making movies are all the ways I escape the world.  Lately it has of course been GTA IV.  As much as I am very proud to be an escapist, something is telling me I need to cut back to reality now...

    The Narcissistic Preacher!

    Escapism in my opinion is the foundation of creativity, that wondrous realm of fantasy where a person can create their own realities far from the social constructs forced upon us on a daily basis. Think of the stereotypical “starving artist”, a life filled with joy doing what...

    I Always Escape!! Mwhahaha *evil Laugh*

     I always manage to escape, when I was a child my sister and I's favourite game was to tie each other up and lock each other in a cupboard and just leave the other one there. LOL as we got older though I have to say we got so good that sometimes we'd have to yell to be freed...
