Do Your Dreams Reflect Your Relationship?
My friend recently told me she has a dream about sleeping with her boyfriend’s best friend. Naturally as she told me and another friend, we were a little surprised, but tried brushing it off. She looked up the deeper meaning, and it turns out her dream may indicte that she is struggling in her relationship. She and her boyfriend have had issues recently, so her dream was reflecting the stress she has been feeling.
What does this mean for our other dreams? Does every dream reflect how we are feeling in our relationships and lives in general? Yes and no. The idea that our dreams mimic our conscience is very probable.
If you dream about cheating, you may be questioning your attachment to your significant other. You may be lacking the emotional or physical attention you need in your relationship. And if you haven’t voiced this to your partner, it may be weighing on you so much so that it is seeping into your dreams.
Alternatively, you may have dreams of being trapped in a small, constricted place. If that is the case, you may feel overwhelmed in your relationship. Maybe your partner is being clingy or just not giving you the space you need. Either way, whether you feel like you are getting too much or too little attention, you need to voice this to your partner. It is one thing to dream it, but another to live with this stress day to day.
You also need to keep in mind that every dream doesn’t necessarily mean something bad. Maybe you are having wonderful dreams of the future. And that may mean you are in a very comfortable place in not just your relationship, but in your life overall. Others don’t dream at all, which may just mean their mind is at ease.
However, if you do notice a correlation between your dreams and love life, talk about it with your partner. They may be having similar thoughts and just have been holding back. Or they may not be aware at all of what is stressing you out. They can’t fix what they don’t know.
Or maybe you have expressed your stress, but it isn’t sinking in. In that case, you need to decide if you are going to work on this or break things off. If you break it off, don’t look back and stick to your guns. If you want to work it out, then you have to get your partner on the same page. It can’t just be all you. You need to make them realize and be very clear that if there is no change, things are not going to work. That should be motivation itself, but work with them so they know clearly what you want and how they can help get your relationship back on track. If not, then your dreams may have been a sign of the future, instead of just a warning.
