I know, they are two totally separate things, one you have control over, the other you don't. But, which do you prefer? I like daydreaming because I have complete control over my thoughts/fantasies and can control the outcome. I have a very vivid and visual imagination so my daydreams can sometimes seem as real as my night dreams. I don't like dreaming at night because I have no control over the outcome and I hate the feeling of waking up and still feeling like the dream is with me. What's worse is when a sad or depressing dream follows you around all day and puts you in a depressed mood. So, which one?
