Why Do I Dream About My Ex? | Meaning of Dreams
Decoding What Your Past Has to Say About Your Present
Have you wondered about the meaning of dreams involving someone who used to be special? As odd as it may seem, dreams about your past relationship are quite normal. Almost everyone who was involved in an intimate relationship has had dreams about their past. Once you wake up from your sleep, you would likely ask yourself what that dream means.
Sometimes you would even think deeply about it, wondering if it was trying to tell you something or confuse you. I did dream about my ex and it made me cringe when I woke up. But here’s the question, what does that mean? Does that mean my ex had been thinking of me? Does he want me back? Here are some interpretations on why you dream about your ex.
During A Relationship
Dreaming about your ex while you’re lying beside your partner is okay. And no, you don’t need to feel guilty about it. There are implications when you dream about your ex during your current relationship. It may convey a healthy relationship with the present partner, and your dream about your ex is just a sign that you are happy with who you are with and what you have right at the moment. You are just reminded by the positive emotions you felt with your ex.
On the other hand, dreaming about your ex in the present may also imply that you are unhappy — you are wanting and looking for more. You are not content with what your current relationship has for you and your partner. You have been pondering on it but you just can’t admit it to yourself. Either way, assess yourself with the flow of your dream whether it was a call for you or not.
Entering A Relationship
Entering a new relationship can be nerve-wracking. It’s not that easy and sure needs a lot of work. Dreaming about your ex prior to entering a new relationship may mean your subconscious mind is helping you settle with the pros and cons of being with someone new. Dreams can bring you back to the past and let you feel the emotions once more. So whatever you dreamed about your past that put you in a dilemma, think through it carefully.
Breakups are never easy nor okay even though it somehow freed you from encumbering. Your ex will be in your mind for quite a long time if the relationship really mattered. Hence, the dreams. You might feel hurt when you dream about your ex because it brings back how hard it was but looking at the bright side, dreaming of your ex may mean you are slowly taking the pace of healing. And it’s okay, it’s good. Your subconscious is helping you let go of the memories slowly by realizations through dreams. So, remember when you dream of your ex after a break up, you will be okay.
Dealing With Emotions
Being emotional is not good news, but it’s natural. But what does it have to do with your emotions? As mentioned above, emotions can get bursting out from all parts of your subconscious mind especially when a break up happens. Love takes its toll on every emotion — happiness, anger, sadness, and so on. Dreaming about your ex may mean something in your waking life that has been bothering you. Maybe it’s an interpretation of how happy you are with everything.
In Or Out of Love
When you dream of your ex, the first thing that comes to your mind right when you wake up is that unexplainable feeling of being torn whether to feel or not feel anything. Admit it, you’ve asked yourself questions and they’re kind of freaky. And that is one reason why overthinking happens. Sure it can be possible if you’re still into the idea of picture-perfect love. Dreaming about your ex is one way the subconscious mind is telling you to move on. Either way, you still determine what the real deal is.
Missing The Ex
Sometimes, dreams about your ex can mean that you miss the feeling of loving and being loved back. It can tell you about yourself– how you miss being wanted by the person you adore. Dreaming about your ex does not really mean that part of you misses him/her in your life (well, maybe a part of you agrees). Anyway, there are only two things that you can do: go after your ex or try to learn to love yourself before getting involved in a new relationship.
Dreaming about your ex can mean a lot. So, to help you further understand as to why your past suddenly shows up in your peaceful slumber, here’s a video by HMBS explaining why you dream about your ex:
Dreaming about your former love isn’t really that bad after all. Your dreams about your past can even help you understand and realize things that are currently happening in your life. If you are struggling over a break-up, then maybe dreaming about your ex implies you need closure. Dreams about them may also mean contentment and happiness with what’s in front of you.
