Fifty-five years ago today, Keith Richards woke up from a sleep; a deep sleep that had been interrupted by a guitar riff and a phrase. In the night, he’d recorded the beginnings of (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, and hadn’t remembered doing so. But his tape did.

You will have to learn to face reality, so that you can at least communicate with people. Otherwise you will have a very lonely life.
Sometimes this aspect means that you are so nervously sensitive that you pick up all the negative psychological energies around you and react to them very strongly. If this is true for you, the only way to deal with it is to be moved to a peaceful, positive environment. If there is too much noise or too many bad vibrations in your life, you will withdraw more and more and refuse to face reality.
Your self-confidence needs to be built up as much as possible so that you can face people without fear, tell the truth about yourself and be honest in other ways as well.
Even if you do adjust easily to reality, you should always have a quiet place where you can be alone with your thoughts. Here you can let your imagination run free and become a creative force instead of a force that works against you.
