i have been having a lot of nightmares lately and i don't know why. i am a person who really thinks that dreams mean something, and i am not going to write exactly what mine have been about but it's pretty obvious that they mean something. i think that dreaming is our brain's way of working out something that we are struggling with. anyways, my nightmares are not always exactly the same but they have been about pretty much the same thing. i just don't know how to get these bad things out of my head i guess and i don't know how to deal with it. how can you stop thinking about something and stop letting it consume you??
