Because trying to be and have those things is the reason to wake up and get out of bed in the first place.

Because you focus on the negative to much, shouldn't you be waking up thinking about the things you have got and be proud of who you are?

Every one has these thoughts, its normal. And its good to have something that drives you. So then getting up and saying you cannot have or be something just get up and tell yourself that your going to work to be something or to have something you want.

You wake up thinking about things you cannot have or be because you're goals are a bit too unrealistic. This happens to all of us at times, no need to worry.

Maybe it's because there are things in the past that we have not made peace about yet, or something that left us unsatisfied about.

Or mind is idealistic. It's normal have fantasies. What you should do is not let that fantasies ruin your day

You can be anyone. Believing in yourself is everything. Never give up, and don't let others put you down. You are spectacular, and no one can disagree.

A little bit of dreaming wont hurt anyone , in fact , this is what keeps the world going. Most people are like you it is perfectly natural. " a dream is not reality but who's to say which is which ?? "

The things we cannot have are most desirable because we cannot work to attain them. They will always be out of reach. I think that you can be whatever you want to be, so don't worry too much about that. It's OK to dream about things we can't have or just want without working for them, but remind yourself that only you can make things happen for yourself.

Everyone wants things that we cannot have. It's a natural part of being human, we strive for the best and crave things we sometimes don't necessarily need. It's not always a bad thing!

Because I think everyone wants to be something they can't but thinking things like that is wonderful its a dream!
