I was telling my fiance about the bad nightmares that I keep having. Its not the same scenario but the same people. And each time, I woke up feeling hurt, angry, embarrassed or down. My fiance’s response was “You need to handle that.” Huh? How? “Confront them”. So you mean to tell me that I must confront those people in my dreams to come out of the nightmare feeling more powerful and in control? I’ve never thought about it that way.
I’ve never been the type to be confrontational. I actually hate it. This is the reason why I keep having nightmares. But it’s time for me to confront my fears in both reality and dream. It may also be time for you. Time to confront your skeletons in the closet, your demons and fears. Face them. Look them in the eyes. Verbally speak or declare to them that you will not let this get the best of you. You are done with that sh🤭t.
They will not go away if you hold it in. Learn from me. It’s tiring to be haunted by a fear or past pain that you wish never happened. But it’s even more painful to get 5, or 10 years down the line and see yourself at the exact place that you are now.
