Stolen Life: (Unedited): 05 July 2013:

Always, living within an artificial fantasy world. Will steal away the short time you have within the real universe. 
I have known people who have spent the majority of their childhood playing games. They became very good at those games. Then when the time game and they were forced in some manor to stop playing games. Those same people often found themselves ill equip to function successfully in the real society. They spent so much time playing games that their education suffered and their friends were associated with the games.
Now, not only are they alone with no friends. They also have virtually no real life skills.
What can they do? How can they transition into this real life from a life of fantasy?

The exact same time, energy and effort you had put into the fantasy world. You do the same in this real world. You start like everyone else at level 1 and then you progress in accordance to the known and unknown rules and laws of the land. Training and education is the same first steps as in the fantasy world. Go and get it in real time with real effort. There is no re-boot. You cannot save the session. You must attend real life every single day. Yes, you will sweat and shed tears, you will get blisters and you may have many head aches. You can be just as successful in this real life as you were in your fantasy life. You will make new real friends. Whom you will actually know and see in real life.
When you go forth with that same intensity and zeal in this real life as you have in your fantasy life. You should be as successful if not more so. With very real rewards and benefits that you can actually touch, fell and use.
