Constantly daydreaming about impossible things.

I constantly day dream about becoming taller, handsome, and an a social butterfly.
I can't accept reality, I hide from it by daydreaming.

looks like blue must be your color.

Hmm. Maybe if you could dream about more manageable things, you could accomplish those things and feel a bit better about yourself? Setting more manageable goals could be the key to unlocking more of your potential, bit by bit.

Years ago, I got by day by day. I ticked them off, one day in the calendar at a time, all the while being slowly crushed. It's not as bad as it used to be.

Somewhere inside
I have died
So I will lie
In formaldehyde
People walk
Through my insides

It is possible to do some things to compensate for your looks(like becoming more fit, taking better care of yourself, etc) and to work gradually on social skills. But I know this is all easier said than done, so I don't blame you for considering them impossible.

I day dream of things far more impossible. Like escaping this world and going to different one. Of a magical being taking me away from all of this.

But as far as my slightly more realistic, but highly unlikely dreams, I dream of things like being self-employed and making a good income. I dream of making art and crafts all day. I dream of propagating plants and breeding things like fish for money. I dream of doing so well that I can afford to do these things in a decent sized heated green house or afford to do saltwater projects like propagating corals and other saltwater critters for a living. I dream of being able to move by the ocean and spend all of my time fishing and otherwise exploring the shore life.

Dreams about being self-employed are because it is something I've always wanted to do and because my anxiety and other problems make the idea of working for others seem like hell.

Aim at the sun, and you may not reach it; but your arrow will fly far higher than if aimed at an object on a level with yourself

Yeah, i too daydream a lot, like having a gf, being rich, having a social life, having fun, etc.
When your mind is idle, you daydream a lot. Back when I had a job, i didn't used to daydream as much.

“The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places.
But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now
mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

I daydream of impossible things too. Beats reality.

I mostly daydream about things which I perceive as somewhat possible.

Most socially anxious (and/or depressed) people are significantly deprived of joy and satisfaction. So of course they're gonna be more prone to flights of fantasy.

I daydream about alternate realities. Related to my various regrets of large life decisions I have made.

If I had made this choice instead of this one....how my life would be better. I have numerous regrets. Big ones. I was going to write them all out here...... but it gets too personal. And probably just tedious for others to read. I'll just save that list in an email draft.

I always a bright future where I'd be one of the most successful filmmakers of our time. Of course, I'm still on my beginning steps so you'll never know.

Joy only flourishes in its sincerity.

You can practice being more social over time. And if you want to look good just lift. Lift weights 1 hour every 2 days, it will make anyone into perfect shape in less than a year.
