Dreams of the past

I keep having dreams about a particular situation from my past.  When I say I keep having them, I'm talking for almost 15 years now.  They aren't unpleasant dreams but when I wake I am often in a fog, I feel a lot of sadness and am just left in general wondering if I have chosen the right path in life.  The conscious thoughts I can generally switch off - for the most part I have a fairly happy life, beautiful children, stable job, mostly happy marriage with the usual ups and downs.   Sometimes there will be a trigger, a memory or something that springs up during the day beforehand, sometimes they come from nowhere.  I don't know if there is any meaning to these dreams, obviously this was something that deeply affected me but I really do believe I have moved on from it all and I don't want to be dwelling on it my whole life.  I don't want it to define who I am.  Sometimes I feel that they are propelling me to act, but at the same time I know I can't.  Water under the bridge and all that.  Plus I can't physically go back in time and change things, so...

Any advice on how to move forward and maybe stop the dreams?  How to make peace with the path I am on?  Hopefully someone will have some insight.
