I have crazy dreams. I’ve had nightmares since I was little…The first dream/nightmare I ever remember…and that was recurring for a couple of years went like this:
I was around 6…It was before my brother was born but my mom was pregnant. We were at an underground shopping center (Those are popular in Turkey)…my dad and I were sitting on a bench across from a store as my mom went into the store the shop. Next thing I know, my dad isn’t next to me, my mom is falling through the display window…and then my mom is on a stretcher…
I had that dream a lot. It was recurring and stopped sometime after I began high school.
In my junior year in high school, in AP Psych, we had keep a dream journal. That was at a point I didn’t really remember much of my dreams because my insomnia had started to come back. For the project, I had to write up three of my dreams and analyze them according to three different theorists…Jung, Freud and Anne Freud (I think). One of them that I remember had to do with my mom showing up at school…I don’t remember all of the details…
My insomnia kicked back once I started college and whenever I did sleep, I’d be so exhausted, I’d sleep through the night without any dreams. The dreams came back whenever I was super stressed…but they still weren’t vivid…I just woke up incredibly disturbed and felt like I hadn’t slept in days. Lately though…my dreams have been vivid. My subconscious is REALLY loud and I don’t like it. Everything that is stressing me out, all the fears that I am trying to overcome in the daily just come and kick me in my sleep.
How am I supposed to feel positive when I’m awake if I’m bombarded by all my fears and drained of all hope in my sleep? 😐
Do you remember your dreams? Ever had any recurring ones? Do you dream in b&w or color? Do you analyze dreams/nightmares? What is one dream that you remember?
