How to stop having sudden bad dreams about a friendship that broke over a year ago?
Our friend circle broke up over a year ago. A section of the friend group started taking advantage of me as i used to overlook things. Gradually things got out of hand, and after speaking to the group about it, it was discussed among everyone over the next week. One night during a call conference, i was told to be quiet about it and they even tried emotional blackmail to shut me up.
They were not always bad company, the changes in behavior began once college started, and considering we were close friends i had no intention of leaving the group.
After a year, I didn't even think of the matter at all because i made new friends, so i was quite happy. However, of late i have been having these very vivid dreams of me meeting my old friends and then being in a very bad situation.
There are constant factors shared among these dreams:
*My new friends appear in the beginning of the dream, but are not there throughout.
*I try to speak with the old group.
*when the members of the old group start talking, it generally makes me uncomfortable and my hands cover my ears towards the end.
Even if i just get an explanation of this, i'll be happy.
