I often have dreams where I am being degraded and humiliated. I have experienced a lot of humiliation in my life, particularly by my father when I was a child.

I see the obvious connection, but my question pertains to the ramifications of these dreams. I am often depressed for days after a particularly degrading dream experience. Is there anything I can do to try and change my dream as I am dreaming it, or to empower myself to maintain some dignity in my dreams? I know this sounds like a crazy request, but any advice would be a tremendous help.
