Much has been said about dreams and what they mean. From the people present, the setting, and the objects in it, everything seems to have a reason for showing up in a dream. Dreams have always been a mysterious thing. It opens up a lot of questions and makes people curious. Throwing people in the mix just makes things more interesting to decode. What could your subconscious mind be trying to tell you? Some publications have claimed that dreams occur to play out unconscious desires that you wouldn’t dare act on in reality.
If you find yourself dreaming about your ex quite a lot recently, you definitely have raised the question of why. What does it mean when you dream about your ex? Here are 4 reasons to help you figure it out
YOU MISS HIM
You might not want to hear it but you may actually be missing your ex-boyfriend. It may be hard to admit but you may still have feelings for your ex and want to get back together. The human subconscious has mysterious ways of processing thoughts. You dreaming about your ex may be a wish fulfillment dream of something you secretly want to happen in real life.
YOU LACK CLOSURE
If you came from a bad breakup where issues weren’t resolved and you just suddenly part ways, it may haunt you in your dreams. Getting dumped is not a good experience. But it’s definitely something you can learn from if you parted ways properly. The lack of closure between two individuals often leaves a hole in your heart which is riddled with questions of what if’s and why’s. The more you think about your situation and what could’ve happened, the more you feed your subconscious to fix things for you. In which case it tries to create a favorable scene in your mind involving your ex.
YOU ARE UNSATISFIED WITH YOUR CURRENT RELATIONSHIP
Even if you’re not actively thinking about your ex, being in a relationship you’re not happy in may trigger your subconscious to save you once more. It may cook up some dreams about your past when you were happy and satisfied. Not that you should breakup with your current partner, but it sure is a sign that you should talk to each other about your relationship. Dreams have an uncanny way of reminding us about things we should take action in. And if you’ve been dreaming a lot about a happier past, it’s probably time to do something.
YOU ARE STALKING YOUR EX ONLINE
It’s no big deal stalking your ex on social media. A lot of people get tempted to look into their profiles once in a while to see what they’re up to. It could because you still have feelings for them. Or it could be because you’re genuinely curious about what’s up. If you’re single, there’s no harm really. But if you’re in a relationship, careful who you’re checking online!
