Ex boyfriend dating someone else
She uses the example of a physically abusive ex to describe what’s going on: “This is particularly true for women — I hear this all the time.They’ll dream that the ex is still beating them — they’re still suffering the abuse. That’s a little bit of PTSD happening.” In addition to speaking with a therapist, she advises: “You need to look at this and be honest with yourself by asking, ‘Are you still beating yourself up for being in that relationship for that long?Compare the emotion you felt in the dream to any current emotions you have been having.What issue right now in real life makes you feel the same way?“In that same vein, you’re having this dream because your subconscious mind is trying to help you come to peace with it.” 14. There’s still a little bit of trauma that you’re experiencing and replaying over and over again.” “But, if this was a long time ago (like years ago), and you’re dreaming that this ex is dumping you all over again, then you need to ask yourself, ‘What’s going on right now that’s making me feel this way? “Or maybe something that you gained from that relationship.” For example, she suggests the relationship could have made you a stronger and more confident person, and now this is your subconscious mind urging you to utilize those skills. If you dream your ex is in some sort of physical danger and you’re not trying to save them…“This could actually be a very good sign that you are progressing from holding onto the pain of the rejection,” Loewenberg says. If you dreamed about your ex dating someone else…“The healthy aspect of [this dream] is that it’s you coming to peace with the fact that your ex is going to have a life after you,” she says.
’ Because, for some reason, your first love is going to represent something that feels like a battle to you in real life. Your dream is trying to help you keep a decent relationship with the ex for the sake of the children, which is another reason why — and I hear this a lot — someone who’s divorced [might] their ex but keep dreaming they’re getting back together, or that they’re having sex [with their ex] even though they swear they would never do that again with that person.“For example, if the emotion you had in the dream was anger, what in real life right now is angering you?Sure, your ex may anger you constantly, but what in particular, right now, is angering you?’ Women who are in abusive relationships often stay in it way too long and they’re scared, or they don’t know what to do. You probably don’t, and your dream is showing that.” 10. If you have a romantic dream about an ex who you never technically “dated”…“Again, it’s probably not necessarily about the ex, but more about some outstanding quality that the ex represents,” Loewenberg says.
When they finally get out, they get mad at themselves and they beat themselves up, and the dream reflects that. If you dreamed about your ex’s most annoying habit…“Your subconscious doesn’t forget anything — it stores everything. “So, what is it that you remember most about this person’s personality or about your time together?
What stands out to me about this particular ex or our relationship? Is there anything in my current life or relationship that seems similar to this former ex or relationship? Is there a lesson I learned from that particular ex or relationship that I can apply to my current life or relationship? Do the actions or circumstances in the dream seem similar to any of my current circumstances? Do the emotions or thoughts I had in the dream relate to how I feel or think about anything in my life or in my relationship right now?
