Do you read to escape?

Share This Post

May is almost here. I can’t believe it. What happened to January?

How are you doing with your reading goals so far this year?

One of my favorite things about reading, ever since I was a child, is the ability to escape into a completely different world.

I’ve always been a voracious reader. Being super sensitive is a challenge in the real world, so I immerse myself in a different place and time when I read (and write.)

Stories have always been a refuge. A place where I didn’t have to pretend I was normal or hide my feelings. I imagined going on adventures with the characters.

Growing up, I was sick a lot, and reading was also medicine. Stories taught me as much as everyday life, and they often entertained me when I couldn’t do much outside of lying in bed.

Do you love to explore new worlds when you read? Do you use stories to escape from this one? Have you ever felt they were medicine for your mind, heart, and soul?
