Derealization as coping mechanism

I think this has happened because I don’t have anything that I can participate in and enjoy. I look forward to sleeping and experiencing the dream world. It’s the only time I am at peace. I think it’s a coping mechanism by saying that this life doesn’t matter and I’m not missing out on anything.

You must be young. This may work for awhile while it don’t seem to matter, but, eventually it will cause you much more stress when you have to interact in the real world.
It’s okay to keep your coping skills, as long as you can step up to the plate when the time comes.
