I can relate to this. I've had a few dreams where I do things I would not do in real life. It's very irritating because I know it isn't right, but yet
it happened. Still, it's just a dream. I've said elsewhere that dreams are just a playground for the mind. I haven't stopped thinking this. I
recommend don't weigh too heavily on what happens in dreams. Sure, there's some meaning in dreams and I do think we actually learn from them, but
don't treat dreams as though they're reality.
I feel your pain. I believe you. I do not believe you're a bad person because of your dream. Now, if things you think are bad become real then my
stance on this issue would change dramatically.
STand outside. Take in some fresh air. Shake it off. Maybe go out at night and gaze at some stars. Sit and stare for a while until the uneasiness
wears away. Be calm and accepting of yourself.
(in case somebody is thinking I was a mass murderer in a dream or assisted hitler in destroying the allied nations opposing him, please stop digging
too deeply into what I'm saying)
This reminds me a bit about thoughts I will sometimes have about others during the day. Not violent thoughts. Instead things like "She's attractive. I
know she's married and don't want to do anything with her. I hope she can't read my thoughts because maybe then she'd think I'm a violent rapist? She
already thinks I'm weird, so this would just be the cherry on top to reaffirm her convictions. I know I'm not! I don't want to hurt anybody. Why is it
so wrong to notice that someone is attractive even though they're married?" Anyway, a lot of my thoughts can go back and forth and I'll curse and do
different things and I'm GLAD nobody can read them. If we could read eachothers minds then we'd have to have MUCH MORE mental discipline in
controlling them and making them presentable.
Again, what happens inside our mind, as long as it stays there, is ok. If it becomes real and it's not helpful and/or violent or hurtful then
obviously we need treatment or prison time. I think a certain amount of leeway can be afford to the mind since it's a lot like a playground or
