Escapism
Rebecca Sugar

I guess I’ll have to face
That in this awful place
I shouldn’t show a trace of doubt

But pulled against the grain
I feel a little pain
That I would rather do without

I rather be free, free, free

I rather be free, free, free

Free, free, free… from here

J. R. R. Tolkien on escapism in “The Lord of the Rings” (x)

“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape?…If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!” 

-J.R.R. Tolkien

Maladaptive daydreaming is so hard to deal with bc I can’t even write everything down bc it’s not a linear story, it’s several universes with overlapping characters and infinite story branches and it’s taking up a lot of brain space & emotions that I should be saving for Real Life
