“Give them pleasure the same pleasure they have when they wake up from a nightmare.” – Alfred Hitchcock
You know how I wrote all those details about our car crash to let them go? It worked. The night I wrote that post I stopped having nightmares.
No more constant replaying of the whole thing in my mind with the horrible crunching metal of the car; no more reliving the feeling of fear right before my prayer; no more wondering “what if” and “how’d it all happen”. Gone.
I do have an instinct to brace myself when the car I’m in makes sudden movements, but that’ll pass.
It worked. And that’s all I have to say about that.
