Bad start to the day

A vivid dream just before waking up this morning had my ex-girlfriend demanding we have a talk, then indicating her complete contempt for anything I had to say and being generally upsetting. I slowly came to consciousness and eventually realised I haven’t even seen, let alone spoken to her in well over a year. Thankfully. It took ages to get the argument and associated emotions out of my head, prone as I am to continuing such confrontations in the imaginary world where I’m articulate and eloquent in such situations. I guess it’s related to a lingering sense of unfinished business – does that ever go away? The world still seems slightly shifted; I think I’ll go dunk my head into a bucket of cold water.
