Escapism — Robin Wils's website


Everyone is guilty of escapism. Not all escapism is bad. Certain things can be valuable. I prefer to select media based on my values. Instead of mindlessly consuming media. Addiction to certain types of escapism limits your creativity. You receive room for other hobbies after you escape from that. As a result your life will be more meaningful.

The internet

People often unwillingly escape into the internet instead of using it as a tool to find information with. It can be a challenge to make internet-escapism less of a problem. As you want to keep the benefits the internet offers.

The fear of missing out is often associated with a lower quality of life. Regretting to miss out on something is a weakness. You can focus on your past all you want, but that is not going to change anything.
