When people try to avoid reality by perusing a fantasy world made in their mind, they become disillusioned, depressed, and angry because the real world doesn't match the fantasy in their mind.
to say it another way
people are avoiding the Truth
(John 14:6)Jesus said to him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father but by Me.
and we've seen it before
 Pilate then said to Him, Are you a king then? Jesus answered, You say it that I am a king. To this end I was born, and for this cause I came into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.  Pilate said to Him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews and said to them, I find no fault in him.
