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.

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
