Escapism: The systematic process of compensating for inferior social and psychological beliefs, feelings, and status. The tendency to seek distraction and relief from unpleasant realities, especially by seeking entertainment or engaging in fantasy.

Always attempting to smooth the pain with the half truths. Being honest is not cool today. It is not the thing to do. However, it should not be the gold standard of who we are. Honesty is a core element to the character that will be needed to survive in this world moving forward. Everything is being recorded, whether on video, audio, and written it’s all being document somewhere. Everything we do or say can come back to us in the future. Even if we do not intend for it too. This is why it is so critical to advance our thoughts, speech, and actions with every intention of keeping it real with ourselves first. Do not let escapism hold up back from being elite in your life.
