Jack Skellington Father of nightmare with daughter and two son tank top, ladies tee
He never really advances or learns to cope with what has happened and continues with his life. They have moments / stages when nightmares still haunt them. Some days are alright, others are impossible but they make it through. That is the message of the dream. Think about it; you woke up after a nightmare probably because you bit your lip. You actually caused the whole chain of events!
