/iˈskāpˌizəm/

“Trying to brighten your ho hum life with a little allusion?”
-Daria (Season 2, Episode 12:Pierce Me)

Escapism.
noun/iˈskāpˌizəm/
“the tendency to seek distraction and relief from unpleasant realities, especially by seeking entertainment or engaging in fantasy”
– Oxford dictionary

“the tendency…” could be removed but…
“to seek distraction and relief from unpleasant realities, especially by seeking entertainment of engaging in fantasy” is pretty perfect.

“to seek distraction and relief…” these words are key. It is a mere distraction, however for many people, I believe
“to seek distraction…” easily progresses into seeking a clear exit.

Remind yourself of the last thing that matters
Cherish it as genuinely as possible,
escape into it and never let it go..
never let it let you go.
