Dream Interpretation: I Dreamed of the Guy Who Asked Me to Get an Abortion

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I keep having dreams of a guy I had a fling with 3 years ago. I ended up getting pregnant and thought it was his and he wanted me to abort. Thank goodness I kept it and it was not his. That made me lose all respect for him, so why in the world does he keep popping up in my dreams?

Lauri: That is a good question and hopefully I can help you! You didn’t provide any details from the dreams, so I will do my best with what you’ve given me.

We tend to dream about things that are affecting us the most because our dreams are trying to help us out with it. While the guy may not be affecting you, odds are, remnants from the situation remain and that is what is affecting you. The guy has become a symbol for it. He wanted you to cut your pregnancy short but instead you allowed your pregnancy to go to term and you were rewarded with, not only a beautiful child, but also with the knowledge that he was not the father. A valuable lesson was learned.

So perhaps he is showing up in your dreams now because something else is going on in your life that you are feeling pressure (from others or even self imposed pressure) to put an end to. He could be a subconscious reminder that it is best to allow something to play out or to go ahead and follow through with something rather than putting a stop to it.

Life is full of mistakes that result in valuable lessons. Those lessons will often be imprinted into our subconscious minds in the form of the person who helped us learn the lesson. So remember, the dreams are probably not about him but rather the lesson that miserable sumabitch taught ya: don’t be like this guy and give up prematurely!
