Daydreaming Too Much

Group Therapy: I'm Constantly Daydreaming, but Not Living

I've really wasted the last few years of my life. I'm 24 and still a student at a community college (at least I'm transferring next semester to finish up my degree though). But other than that, I have nothing to show for myself, because I spend all my time isolating myself and daydreaming about things I want to happen instead of actually going out there and making them happen in reality.

The last year has been the worst because I've moved back home with my parents (literally in the middle of nowhere . . . it's a 30-minute drive to even find a grocery store), and money is soooo tight right now. I can barely afford the gas to get to school and back, even though things will be getting better financially this summer. So instead of making friends, or dating, or discovering new hobbies, I just sit at home online in my own world biding my time until I transfer schools in the fall.

But it's become such a natural thing for me that I worry that transferring and moving out isn't going to make a difference in the way I live my life. It's gotten to the point where I don't even remember what having a life feels like, and that really frightens me. I don't want to look back in another few years and be as regretful as I am now. Does anyone have any advice?
