At first when you wake up and your dream is a little disturbing it can take a moment to realise it was just a dream and this is normal. It is perfectly normal to feel awkward about it, but then take a hold of your thoughts and step back into reality.
The 5 most horrible things imaginable to dream about:
1. Killing your child.
2. Killing your husband or wife.
3. Stabbing someone.
4. Having sexual relations with a child (yes I know this is even shocking to put here – but this dream could happen).
5. Having sex with a family member or best friend.
The best thing to do is only talk to someone who understands you and is not about to think the unthinkable (you did it!). Dreams are not something we fully understand and you can look up what dreams mean in many dream books, but ultimately if your dream is, in reality, really disturbing, the best thing might be to write down on paper, what happened in the dream, and then throw the piece of paper away.
We constantly watch movies, read books, see the news and disturbing images and ideas flood our minds and sometimes dreaming is the only outlet our mind might have. Dreaming is our mind acting freely and thoughts are very similar at times. It is up to us to control how dreams and thoughts make us feel.
