To fantasize means to immerse one’s mind in improbable or impossible things. Ever since I was a little girl, I have been a creature of the mind, living more in my mind than outside it. I can say that fantasy helps me to escape from my real life. I enjoy and love the characters and worlds that I draw and paint. Interestingly, I also include magical powers of the heroic people that I draw.

 

Here is why I think everyone should indulge in some fantasy every now and then.  

 

Why I love fantasy

When I fantasize, I forget about my real world and the challenges I go through. I normally use paintings and drawings of my favorite actor in a TV program, like Frozen. When I do so, I feel relieved and experience great warmth in my mind because I forget the real life. Since I am more sensible than my siblings, I love being happy. Well, fantasy gives me that chance and many more advantages that I will tell you about in this article.

 

First, fantasy helps me to escape my real life

 

Everyone seeks for a means to forget the challenges they are going through in life. Well, I normally find fantasy as my cheapest and easy escape to do so. Even though my body stays on earth, I normally feel like I have taken a trip to the moon when I fantasize. At times, I find my life miserable and wish I was born a superstar. But fantasy gives me that chance to feel like one even if it will be for a short while.

 

Fantasy gives me magical powers

Who would mind to possess some magic or superpowers? Well, I love magic and enjoy having some when I fantasize. When I was a kid, I never missed watching Santa Claus. This gave me a kind of satisfaction that I could not explain.

 

Fantasy increases my expectations

 

I love expecting that great things will happen in my life any time. That is fantasy. However, fantasy helps me know that mistakes are normal and even the most perfect people can go wrong. When I escape from the real world, I see myself as a winner regardless of what my peers think of me. More so, I get to understand that even the most heroic people make mistakes even with all the devices and magic they possess.

 

Fantasy teaches me about emotions

 

I love watching fantasy movies and TV shows because I find real human emotions. The characters have actual bonds and make sacrifices just like people would do in real life. This helps me to see how I can apply such emotions in my daily activities. At some point, people will always make sacrifices for their loved ones even if it does not mean dying for them. I get comfort when I watch even the most heroic people make sacrifices just as normal human beings would do.

 

Getting a great connection to emotions, escaping from real life, increasing my expectations and getting magical powers are some of the reasons why I fantasize. At some point, everyone fantasizes in life although not all are aware that it is fantasy.
