What's more important? Reality, Dreams or Fantasies?

In my opinion... Reality is important... and you need to deal with it... that you like it or not... in order to survive and not end up in a mental institution. Dreams are also important... as dreams give you the motivation to do things in order to achieve them. Without dreams... you don't achieve anything. Fantasies are a way to relieve stress. When you get home from a hard day work... you want to turn off and relax. Reading the news or the financial review won't do it. What you need is fantasy... like a movie or television serial. It might be nonsense because it is fantasy... but fantasy will relax you. At the end of the day... you need an equal combination of the three to lead an healthy life. What do you think?

as you rightly said we do need a combination of all three only it should be in moderation and not in excess,otherwise it could lead to disharmony in our lives,

That's the whole problem... Very few people manages to balance the three. Most of us put 70 per cent into one of them.

Hi Aussie, Well to me reality is the most important, and you are right. Dreams are important as well as without dreams then we would not be able to focus on what we may wish for in life. Yes again you are right in regards to fantasy as it is wonderful to relax and what a bit of television or a good dvd. I agree completely with you on this one.

For me the reality is this one what we cant avoid, refuse or escape. Dreams are something what makes our life a mistique. When we are dreaming, we visit another worlds. Fantasies are our creative stimul and inspiration. So i support you, all of them are important.

"At the end of the day... you need an equal combination of the three to lead an healthy life. What do you think? " I agree with you completely...I think its very important to have a health equal dose of each of those in order live a balanced and ultimately happy life...IMO problems ONLY arise when one of the three takes over and the other two become less important...then you will end up completely off balance and thats when stress kicks in IMO...
