      Dreams were one of the biggest struggles for me to overcome ocd, I thought dreams meant something about your character.

      they don’t.

      I think I stopped believing in my dreams when I had dream with my dad and I actually [comment edited by moderators] in real life, I was like “woah that was so weird” but I’m not attracted to my dad at all so I had this massive eureka moment and realised dreams mean nothing at all. If I have this about my dad and I’m not attracted to him then I can have these awful dreams about younger people and know I’m not attracted to them either. Again dreams mean nothing

      I know this was a reassurance but this is the only one I’m giving you sorry lol
