Most people love to sleep because it lets them have time to relax and to have dreams. The problem though is dreams aren’t always the best, but they can tell you when you are stressing about something in your life. This is especially true when you dream of things that you don’t want to dream of.
One minute you might dream of being at your favorite vacation resort and then out of nowhere, walking down the beach is your ex. Why do you have to dream about your ex? This doesn’t always mean that you want to get back together with them.
Dreams are often something that happens when people are hiding their real feelings. Sometimes this can cause unexpected dreams to come. Even if you are in a relationship with someone new and you are happy, you can still dream about your ex. It isn’t a weird dream to have to see yourself with your ex, even being happy.
It’s not uncommon to dream about an ex but it probably doesn’t mean what you might think it means. If you dream of your ex while you are sleep, here can be some of the main reasons that happens:
You Still Have Feelings
This doesn’t mean that you want to be romantic with your ex, this can mean feelings that you never let out or maybe you didn’t get the closure that you needed. You might have ended the relationship, but you never were able to work past the hurt. This can cause those kinds of dreams.
Making Your New Relationship Work
Another reason to dream about your ex is that you might be comparing your new relationship with the old one. You might wonder what is going to happen with your new person and if you are going to be able to keep this relationship working strongly. Chances are that you want to make your new relationship work and you are worried that it might go sour.
Most dreams are full of signs and symbols and this kind of dream most likely means that you need to have some kind of closure or healing. You need to face whatever caused the relationship to end.
You dream about your ex because you think about how the relationship could have gone differently and you wonder if its your fault. This can make you dream about your ex because you might be worried that the same thing will happen in your new relationship.
You Still Love Them
Even though the relationship ended for a real reason, you might not have ever gotten over your feelings for them. Look and see if this is a relationship that is really over or if you think you can get back with your ex.
The Dream is Who You Are
Some believe that a dream about your ex is that you might think that you gave up too much of your life in the past relationship that you have. Instead of quitting at life. You need to work now to regain your sanity and to regain the lost time that you had with yourself and your friends and family.
Fear of Hurt
Getting over someone that you love can be painful. If you are dreaming of your ex, chances are that you might be afraid of getting hurt. You might worry that you are going to get your heart broken again or that you are going to go down that same path of emotional pain.
Changing Your Life
When an ex shows up in your dream, it can mean that you are hiding parts of yourself that you need to embrace and to care about. This kind of dream can mean that you need to reconnect with your inner self and that you need to strengthen your inner relationship.
The relationship that you were in might have ended painful. If it did, chances are that you are dreaming of your ex because you need to forgive them or you need to forgive yourself. Think about what happened and what you need to do to move on.
Missing Their Company
You can miss someone because of the change in your life that takes place after they leave. If you dream of your ex, it doesn’t always mean that you miss being with them, it can also mean that you just miss doing things with them and doing the things that you used to do as a couple.
You Aren’t Happy
Dreaming of an ex can mean that you have things that are going on in your life that are bringing you stress and sadness. There can be things that make you unhappy and that are causing you to not live your best life.
The best thing that you can do is to look at your life and to see what you can do to move forward and to find how to bring happiness to yourself.
