Our expert says:
Daydreaming is quite common, especially when one's life is really unpleasant or disappointing. And coping methods can become habits, and bad ones if they are no longer effective or efficient. If you are currently ( inaccurately, I'm sure ) convincing yourself that you are a pathetic failure, then you are giving yourself another reason to want to escape into those dreams.
You really would benefit so much from seeing a good local psychotherapist using CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy )a proven effective method of changing such bad habits, and revising your artificially low opinion of yourself.
It is so sad to hear about how much you have been limiting and constricting your life, when, with the right sort of help, you could be confidently enjoying it.
NEVER be embarrassed to see a psychologist - all shrinks have heard just about everything, much much worse than any problem you may have, and are sympathetic and want to understand and help. Theres so much that can be done to change and improve this - just see a shrink and let it happen
