I keep having dreams that I am working with a former

Customer Question
I keep having dreams...

I keep having dreams that I am working with a former employee (I sort of had a thing for) and we work for the same former employer but different locations and buildings?

Expert's Assistant: Oh I love this topic. Did you know I used to be a dream interpretation Expert? Yes, but now I have to hand you off to one of the new and better trained ones. You will undoubtedly enjoy this. Please tell me everything you can so the Dream Analyst can help you best.

I worked for a monster employer for about 6 years. In that time another employee and I developed a crush on each other, probably to deal with the stress of the job. I have since moved on to another job and so has he. We have remained friends and there is no romantic attachment any longer. But lately I have dreams that we work together for the old employer but he locations and building always look different. What does this mean?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Dream Analyst should know?

He just got married and his wife is great. We are all friends. Although this all occurred about 5 years ago and I have been at my current job 8 years, I have begun having these odd dreams regularly recently.

There are many schools of thought on the topic of dream interpretation. Some say dreams are subconscious thoughts that our mind wishes to hide. Others say dreams are a way for our brain to process day to day situations. Of course there is the school of thought that indicates that dream are a form of prophecy. More yet that believe that if you are having a good dream you are thinking positive thoughts that are leading to positive events, and the contrary is also true. I think dream interpretation is a very personal experience and the most significant indicator of a dream meaning is your feeling state in the dream.

It seems like there are aspects of your previous job and your previous crush that seem to be unresolved or coming up again. Is there perhaps aspects of your new job that you are feeling unsatisfied with? or perhaps there are things from the past that might still be bothering you?

it might be worthwhile for you to evaluate where you are as your dreams are often an indication of something you are working on or something that may be coming up in your thoughts regularly. let me know some further information so we can try and figure this out together.

You are correct in saying aspects of my current job are unsatisfactory. I do feel strongly recently that I want to move on to something different, something more meaningful.

Looking for a relationship counselor. Should i send my whole
I have a relationship with a much younger filipino woman that up until recently I thought was strong. We met in Singapore 2 years ago and I helped her move back home with her family. We are engaged for the last 18 months and already purchased a home. Our relationship was strong....I thought but she was having trouble with her parents. One night she was angry with her father and went our alone to a bar 2 hours from home. She allowed a guy to sit with her for company and....well they ended up sleeping together that night, unprotected, and she is now pregnant with his baby. I really love her and trying to forgive her but I can't get these images out of my head. It's been a month now since she told me....and initially she was unsure if it was his or mine....but confirmed his. I am faced with a dilemma to either end the relationship with this woman that I still love.....and I believe still loves me....or accepting what she did and raising another man's baby. I am really torn up inside and thought I would be getting better but the pain and hurt are just so great. I wrote her a letter explaining all of my issues and was very candid. It was good to vent but realistically, I have trouble getting over this. Can I ever trust her again? will I be able to accept this baby? Any advice or insights greatly appreciated....… read more
