Let’s look at nightmares differently. Nightmares have always been labeled bad. One would complain ‘I keep having nightmares’. In fact, the word itself derives from the Old English “mare”, a mythological demon who torments human beings with frightening dreams. But why is that? Isn’t it true that when you wake up from a nightmare, you feel grateful & happy that whatever you saw wasn’t real? And the opposite happens with dreams where you wake up realizing & hating that what you just experienced wasn’t your reality?
