If you’ve ever watched the cult classic 1984, then you probably know exactly what room 101 is. There are a few different explanations floating around, but the general idea is that it’s the place where your worst fears come true.
It is a place of torture and suffering. The theory goes that if you are able to survive Room 101, then you can overcome anything else in life—and in fact, if you don’t go through this torture and suffering, then you can never be truly happy.
It is a place where you are forced to confront your deepest, darkest fears. You may have heard that this room is “a place where your worst nightmares come true” or “a place where your deepest fears are made real.” But really, it’s about confronting those fears—the ones we all have—and learning from them so that we can get through life without having to deal with them again.
