I’m a very emotional person. Try as I might to be less driven by emotions, most everything I do in life is dictated by my feelings. I laugh hard and I cry hard. That said, it is often very difficult for me to push feelings aside – even when I no longer realize I’m having them.
Case in point? Dreams. I have extremely vivid dreams. Often.
Most of my dreams tend to be recurring. They are the kind of dreams that drive you insane because you’ve had them so many times. Most of the time, they revolve around people from my past with whom I seem to lack some sort of closure. Whether it’s a close friend with whom I’ve lost touch, an ex-boyfriend I’ve done wrong or a family member I haven’t seen in a while, I can’t seem to get over things once I nod off to dreamland.
They say dreams are a sort of portal to our subconscious soul. If that’s true, what are my dreams trying to tell me? Why do I have them, and, how much does it take for one’s subconscious to just let go?
I used to be haunted by nightmares in which my teeth would fall out, wither away or crumble right in my mouth. Fortunately, I found that if I continue to wear my retainer one night a week (sexy!), I never have them. I wonder if that means there's some kind of quirky solution to end any/all dreams...
