Escaping From Reality: The Pros and Cons

When something negative affects your life, there is no straightforward way to cope with it. No matter how you cope with the situation, it’s difficult because the situation itself is difficult, too. What I’ve learned about myself over the recent weeks is that I have a tendency to escape from reality when something unfortunate happens in my life. I do it through a variety of ways, such as YouTube, TV, video games, and endless social media usage, but that leaves an unanswered question: does escaping from reality help cope with a difficult situation?

I am not a doctor, so do not treat this as therapy or medical advice. I just do this podcast with the hopes that it can help some people.
