I gave it much thought, but I came to the conclusion that I don't understand the question presented in this thread.

I keep on going to the question "How do I not deal with reality?". And I'm like, is that even possible?

How I deal with reality? I suppose by living and breathing.

In terms of how I deal with tough moments in my life. Which is a question I find a bit better phrased. I'd say it's very simple. I think it through and decide on my findings.
