So my girlfriend now ex-girlfriend and I have been separated for like more than 2 months already. I was fine and everything. I got to hang out with friends, going to places, met new people and went on few small dates and everything was great.
I am totally happy being single but here’s the thing. Lately I have dreams about my ex-gf. Every time I wake up from my dream, I feel really sad and all those emotions that were once gone now coming back to me. I don’t think about my ex on a normal day to day basis; only once a while when there’s something that acts as trigger. And every time when those emotions being stirred up, I am totally aware of my feelings and understand the reason and able to rationalize those emotions.
It sucks that I can totally control all aspect of my emotions when i’m awake but I cannot control my dream or simply put, I cannot control what or who going to show up in my dream. And the fact that my ex shows up in my dream makes it even worse for me when I wake up.
I understand 2 months is still really fresh for a 4-year relationship but I guess what I don’t understand is why these dreams all of the sudden? What can I do to stop having these kind of dreams? It is getting really annoying.
