Still Chasing a Dream

Is it wrong to not want to let go of your dreams, even though there is really no chance of you ever reaching them? Is it silly to be chasing an unreachable dream after more than 10 years? I’ m just not ready to admit defeat.

Dreams can be lke stars. You can use them to navigate by, to get somewhere worthwhile, without actuall expecting to reach a star itself. If you acknowledge that you can't reach he particular dream, what do you usefully achieve by chasing it ? Could you modify the dream, or reach towards other dreams, without feeling defeated ?
Maybe as Maria suggests, its wise to define achievable steps n the dirction of your dream, rather than trying just one huge leap which will always fail.
Also, it depends on the dream. If you were Saddam Hussein or Gadaffi, maybe its excllent if his dreams idn't all get met ?

It depends. To what extent does chasing the dream impact on your life? Can you break it down into smaller steps and work towards a shorter term goal?
