Don't let your nightmares define you.

It's the weekend and I kinda had a lot of fun before going to bed so that's enough reason for me to have believed that I was gonna get sweet dreams but the reverse was the case.

I had a terrible nightmare and in it, I was being placed at a stranger's mercy. It seemed like I was being kidnapped and was almost butchered to death but I woke up screaming.

My mom rushed to my aid, I was sweating profusely and trembling because the dream was really terrific. I couldn't say a word to my mother until after some time.

I told her everything and mother's being mother's she started sweet talking me and praying at the same time. I didn't say anything and then the next word that came out of her mouth was "are you gonna be living your life in fear now because of a mere nightmare"?

I looked up at her, I don't know how and why but that statement made me smile and I told her nah! It can't be, I can't leave my life in fear because of a mere nightmare.

I've had even more terrible ones and it doesn't move me, when once I wake up,I speak positivity into my life and I move.

No nightmare can make me stop being me, no nightmare can put me in fear of mere humans like myself. I've grown up with the impression that no man can hurt me and that's how it is and would be.

I don't let my nightmares define my fate or shape my life nor do I want to ever give it a chance. One of my friends once had a terrible nightmare and someone stabbed her the moment she stepped out of the house and throughout that day, my friend refused to step foot outside no matter how much I pleaded with her.

I tried convincing her it was just a nightmare and she said she believed in nightmares. That's where I stopped at my track, I stopped with the persuasion because I could see that her mindset was that which believed in silly nightmares.

It's all about how you've programmed your mindset to relate with nightmares that you'll get your results.

To me nightmares are just nightmares and can never have any effect on my life.

It's been a long that I haven't had any nightmares. Not even the good ones, hehehe.

But yeah, I did face the same situation a few times too that my mom had to come into my room and check what happened.

Moms are always coming to rescue. Lol. I wish I could also sleep without dreaming, just to enjoy the sleep and wake up without dreams.

I miss dreaming, the good ones. 😐
Maybe my indisciplined sleeping routine is the cause of this. Need to change it asap.

Nope, I miss the good ones.
It's boring to shut your eyes into darkness and open to see the morning. Dreaming isn't bad always, just wanna avoid the scary ones that make me sweat.

Lol. The scary ones shake bones🤣. Don't worry get take a deep breath before going to sleep and you'll have sweet dreams. Make sure you tell me all about it when you wake up.

Yeah sometimes the kind of dreams we get while we are asleep are due to stress, anxiety and prolly what had been revolving In our heads throughout the day but my case was so different. I wasn't depressed, stressed or anything, I was happy but then I had a silly nightmare which was annoying when I woke up. Thankfully it was just a dream so I'm glad. Thanks for coming around my precious @dreemsteem . !PIZZA
