Last night/this morning I had a horrifying dream. The kind that feel so real when you wake up you are trying to decide if that just happened yesterday or if it were really a dream. I often have dreams like this. In fact, I rarely have dreams that are positive and happy. My dreams are either terrifying or they are about sex. Who knows why and I’m not going to try to get into what dreams mean. I just hate the feelings that I get from these dreams.
After I wake up and remember the dream there are always a few details that make it obvious that I was dreaming. For example, in my dream last night I had committed several crimes, the details are a bit foggy right now but at the end of my crime spree I stole a car from a valet line with some assistance but the next day the purple convertible was a fancy purple beach bicycle. Also, when we walked into a door that looked like a house we actually walked out into a gigantic back yard.
The emotions that came up in the dream had more to do with my son and my job. Fear is many times the strongest emotion I feel in my bad dreams however sometimes I feel hurt emotionally by someone close to me. Sometimes the people close to me look like themselves, others they look like actors or rappers.
I am a worst-case-scenario type of person and that makes me think these bad dreams are already developed in my mind before I go to sleep and then they get played out in a different manner but are just as scary. I usually remember the worst dreams that I have had forever. I don’t even want to talk about them because I haven’t told too many people that are close to me and those dreams involve family.
Anyhow, sometimes these dreams can make the day following a bit more difficult because the emotion doesn’t go away because I woke up. It’s almost as if it really did happen. I sound like a crazy person at this point so I’ll go a head and end here. Let’s get some positive dreams in my mind, or at least the sex dreams, I forget about those rather quickly.
What do you dream about?
