Dream 493: Don’t ever be in a relationship like that again
A woman asked me what it might mean that she had a dream that she killed her ex-boyfriend?
At the first level of dream interpretation, each living thing in a dream represents a part of the dreamer’s mind. Men tend to go with actions, women tend to go with emotions; not absolutely so, but it usually falls out that way.
In the dream, your ex-boyfriend would represent the part of your mind that had to deal with your ex-boyfriend. The dream is actually saying at least two things. One is that your subconscious definitely does not want you to be in a relationship, in the future, that is similar in any way to the relationship you had with that ex-boyfriend. Secondly, it is emphasizing that it is best for you, that your relationship with that ex-boyfriend is over.
Having a dream like this may indicate that you still have feelings about the damage that relationship did to you. The dream may be putting an exclamation point on the necessity to resolve that relationship in your mind, and put it behind you.
The main thing to be learned from this dream is that it doesn’t want you to return to a past destructive relationship, or to enter into a relationship that is anything similar to it. It probably does not want you to act in any way similar that you acted in this relationship in future relationships. Your emotions or intentions may have been good, but your actions did harm probably.
