How ‘Dream Weaver’ inspired Freddy Krueger
Follow The Verge online:
He first appeared in Wes Craven 's A Nightmare on Elm Street as the spirit of a serial killer who uses a gloved hand with razors to kill his victims in their dreams, causing their deaths in the real world as well. In the dream world, he is a powerful force and almost completely invulnerable. However, whenever Freddy is pulled into the real world, he has normal human vulnerabilities and can be destroyed.
Put that in perspective before you try to equate your struggle to his. Mormonism is fundamental to my religious beliefs and my personal sense of identity, and it is the community that I identify with most strongly. You should expect that this will define your relationship with her. Yeah man, don't doubt someone who was a missionary will try to convert you. Go for the joy, the experiences, the children to come. Meanwhile, he'll be adored and revered and flirted with by divorced nurses who would jump in the sack with him at a moment's notice. It is how she is programmed and it is a fundamental tenant of the religion. You're walking into a den of crazy, tbm bishop's daughter, I hate to say it but you should really be contemplative about what you're stepping into. So do you just never give anything back to SOs in terms of time or small gestures. A straight-laced, returned sister missionary, raised in the cult, and in family of similarly entrenched cult members, will not likely remain happy with a non-member.
Being married to a doctor is no walk in the park. If my mother needed her surgeon's attention, I wouldn't want him to be thinking about his wife's lamenting that he's never home, not romantic, etc. Take what you read with a grain of salt. As an atheist with Buddhist undertones who married a non-practicing, god-believing Mormon at the height of his questioning, I find this so interesting to me.
