I 'd Rather Be Dreaming Than Living

Living's just too hard to do. It's chances, not choices. Noises, not voices. A day's just a thing to get through. Living's just too hard to do. 3,817 People

    i day dream more when i listen to music.

    and when i do....... it's poetry in motion, it's long hair in the wind, it's..... as if the sky wasn't high enough

    I'd much rather be dreaming

    than living because there are no limits to anything in your dreams. You become the one that breaks the thin barrier between reality and fantasy.

    I would say dreaming is my only hobby I do it

    every day with my eyes open or close them but when I get bored of it because it can't be real what I daydream about, I just read fan fictions that makes me wish for me to be in it

    I've been thinking about dying again.

    The only times I'm happy are really when I daydream or play video games or watch thing I love. I've realized that it's because I'm cut off from reality and people. I don't know what to do. I can't just "leave" but then I feel I will get answers to something's and I might be free...

    Honestly, I have to admit,

    I don't have the courage to face up to reality. Maybe that's why I'd rather dream. Considering the **** I've faced it might just be a side affect of living. Giving up is too painful so dreaming's all I've got. Brokenness, is a symptom of reality, but it is the only way we can...

    I have found life to be a hostile

    and unforgiving place...the harsh reality of living having completely obliterated all my hopes and dreams, the only place I now feel safe and happy is when I escape into my dreams. I wish I could have the solitude to be left alone to escape into my dreamworld.

    A dream isn't always something you get

    when you're asleep. In fact, that's a benefit I rarely get... Dreams let you be somebody else. They let you see a world that isn't ours. And I would so much rather be in a world where everything was better. Where people are just people and you don't judge based on sexuality...
