    Default Man Wakes From Nightmare Relieved It Only Expression Of His Real-Life Problems



    Man Wakes From Nightmare Relieved It Only Expression Of His Real-Life Problems - The Onion - America's Finest News Source

    NEW ORLEANS—Jolting awake in a panicked daze, local man Bill Rolinger reportedly breathed a sigh of relief early Monday morning after realizing that the nightmare he had just experienced was only a reflection of his real-life problems. “Whew! Thank God that was just a manifestation of the actual deep-seated issues that I refuse to address and that have now seeped deep into my subconscious,” said Rolinger, assuring himself that what had just transpired was nothing more than a slightly more vivid reiteration of the problems that plague him day in and day out. “I was really frightened there before I realized that everything happening was simply my sleeping mind showing itself powerless to unchain itself from my daytime fears and then translating those exact anxieties into the language of dreams. It was intense for sure, but it felt good to wake up and register the fact that it was nothing more than a passing interpretation of everything that’s chronically wrong with my life.” Rolinger reportedly then proceeded to go back to sleep, comforted in the knowledge that even if he had another nightmare, it would just be a version of the troubles that would hamper him at work tomorrow and likely for the rest of his life.

    It reminds me of when I went to counseling because I was depressed. It turned out that my life just sucked really bad and all I had to do was fix it. What a relief.

    Almost every time I thought I was going mad it turned out that someone was trying to drive me crazy.

    So if he didn't have dreams, he wouldn't have any problems.

    Yes. It happened to me yesterday morning.

    But, I'm relieved now when I know it will probably happen tomorrow morning, after it also happened this early morning.

    Have you seen the movie "A Dangerous Method"? I recently did and am still thinking on it often.


    In it, Sigmund Freud's approach is to 'help people realize who/what they are'.

    Carl Jung wants to expand that by 'helping people see who they are and also what they might become'.

    Freud says this is folly because it would only be replacing one delusion with another. That only by accepting that all is delusion will health be possible...


    It was interesting to see the differences in approach - from some who influenced - what still belongs to psychological analysis today.

    Yes, I watched the movie. Great movie. Michael Fassbender (Jung), Viggo Mortensen (Freud). You must accept themselves first (Freud), in order to become what you actually might be. There is no progress without adress-ing the issues.

    The onion used to be much funnier when it was still based out of New York instead of Chicago. For the last few years it's seemed only half as intelligent as it used to be, taking on a new decidedly leftist and cynical slant in most editorials.

    The basic irony in this story is OK enough, but it's kind of hindered by the fact that dreams are often expressions of irrational fears and anxieties that the mind needs to purge or "vent" to retain sanity. Nightmares are much less a reflection of actual reality and more a reflection of an unhealthy paranoia that uses dreams to alleviate itself.

    So really, it's not that funny. Unless the guy wakes from a dream where all his teeth are falling out only find all his teeth actually falling out.
