Jung explained that, because a man’s sensitivity must often be repressed, the anima is one of the most significant emotions of all.
It often manifests itself by appearing in dreams and can be the source of men’s creativity.
I think many women are conditioned to believe that men only have those ‘wet dreams’ like they did during puberty. One man in his 30’s shared that sometimes the love feeling is so intense when he wakes up that he finds himself thinking of this woman for the next couple days until the dream wears off.
I decided to do a bit more research on this which led to me to Carl Jung’s school of analytical psychology where he spoke of each of us having our male side (animus) and our female side (anima).
The yearning for men to fall in love is to connect with their anima psychologically.The few waking thoughts that I have about this particular ex are about how he still owes me 0 — so why was our dream reunion like a deleted scene from The Notebook?The good news is that as it runs out, dreaming of an ex is very common — we're actually more likely to dream of an ex than our current partner.Maybe it’s time to embrace those qualities you are ashamed of, or let go of a past hurt and enjoy the present, and your realtionship, for what it is, here and now.So you and your ex have been broken up for a while, and you're finally feeling better about the whole thing— you're moving on with your life, you're no longer hung up on why or how your relationship ended, and your ex, to quote the great existential philosopher Hilary Duff, is so yesterday. Is it horrible and irrefutable proof that you're not over them?
