You rarely come up with the best ideas when you’re in dialogue with yourself.
Dreaming about work is bad enough (as if there were no adventures), and it was a nightmare that actually deserved its classification due to its bourgeois nature. Zwangler’s dream, for example. It was an unfinished script, technical problems, a deadline that couldn’t be met, and two of my colleagues who let me down and simply walked away quickly saying, “It’s your fault.” The newspaper cannot be printed.
The rage was still fresh the next morning, and the first person I met was the snotty fellow. She angrily told him how bad he had behaved in the dream. “Should I apologize for that?” It was a fun reaction. Then the cooperation became tense and one-sided. Very childish, but the resentment in the subconscious cannot be pushed aside so quickly. What if you recognized something in a dream that was overlooked in everyday life?
Paul Watzlawick described in his legendary book Instructions for Unhappiness how you can create pitfalls in your dialogue with yourself and then stumble on your own feet, a book that never seems to get old. Reminder: A person wants to borrow a hammer from his neighbor. The fleeting thought that he has not welcomed you warmly recently creates a stream of negative thoughts within him. Conclusion: The neighbor definitely has something against him, so why this rudeness? He finally bursts into the house next door and yells at the distraught neighbor that he can keep his damned hammer.
You can get lost in the spiral of negative thinking. Humor explodes for them. My colleague made me laugh so hard that the fog of the night lifted. Unfortunately, we both missed the deadline.
