The majority or even all of the events that we experience in our lives become a part of our subconscious, even if we do not remember that we have processed them.
Every single thought, event, situation, or person you see/meet/experience in life can become a part of your dream world.

Numerous scientists have studied the effect dreams have on humans, and they have concluded, in some part, that our mind process all that we have experienced during the day.

In order to protect themselves from the pressure and condemnation of the environment and to avoid the agony of facing their own fears, many prefer to remain in an insincere relationship for the rest of their lives.
By choosing to stay in a relationship that does not fulfill them, the partners choose to suppress their real emotional needs.
By suppressing their needs and avoiding the inconvenience of facing the truth, partners often focus their energy on compensatory relationships and activities. They point out that they are married because of the children; for them, it becomes an important home, hobby, and not so few are obsessively dedicated to working.
No matter how much you try to silence dissatisfaction and emotional fulfillment with a partner relationship, there will always be a feeling of emptiness and anxiety in one part of your being.
