You can safely exercise all imagination that you have. At least there would be a place to rest from those imagined or real troubles...

"“Do not imagine you can exorcise what oppresses you in life by giving vent to it in art. No. The heart's dross does not find its way on to paper: all you pour out there is ink.”
From Flaubert's Letters.
