So I had a nightmare last night that really got to me. In the dream, I was sitting with the girls I went to high school with; let’s call them, E, B, K, and R.
R was, until very recently, a dear friend of mine. Well, E began talking about stuff she had been doing to get into colleges, and it was all scam stuff, so we told her.
But R got all up in her face, viscous about it, shouting at her and looming over her. So needless to say, we were trying to get her to stop.
I was sitting on a couch beside K, K between me, E, and R. So I yelled R’s full name in a stern voice… And she turned and launched herself over K and the couch to attack me.
I woke up with a start, raising my arms to protect myself as I was in the dream, heart pounding out of my chest.Now, none of that would ever happen.
I know that R would never attack me, but the yelling at E was possible if she was acting the way she has been recently.
I’ve lost all respect for R in the past few months, but I never would have expected it to manifest in my dreams as an attack on me.
She’s been treating my closest friend terribly and being a generally terrible human being. I don’t want to be friends with her anymore. But that’s not the point.
I’m not sure what the point is other than it was odd to literally hold my arms up to defend myself in real life from the dream.
