Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. If you’ve got a good one, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg just might tell you what it means! Click here to submit yours (18 and older only for dream interpretations, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:
My husband and I broke up 7 months ago and we have an 8 year old son together. Last night, we were talking on Viber and he said he had to live in the place where his new wife is. Then I dreamt I was in the same class as his new wife and we started arguing and fighting. And I noticed her stomach was bulging out of her blouse and I think she was pregnant. We started to fight but then other ladies were there and they stopped us and said the class had to go on and so we stopped.
Lauri: I am sorry to hear you are having to deal with a new wife so soon after your split. My best friend is going through the same thing so I know the anger and pain you must be experiencing. And as angering and painful as the situation is, your dream is actually trying to help you through this.
All the arguing and fighting you are doing with the wife in the dream is a means of expressing your anger, obviously. But her apparent pregnancy is interesting. While this may be a fear of yours — “Am I going to be able to handle it if she gets pregnant?” — it is also a message from your wise dreaming mind.
Pregnancies in dreams are symbolic of new developments or something that is in the works or some kind of new life that is about to happen for you. So in this dream, I believe it is symbolic of the new life you now have to “learn” to live with, hence the classroom setting. You are even told as much in the dream: “The class has to go on.” Life has to go on. It’s not fair. It sucks. But you have to go on.
And my personal advice, which you can take or leave, is to stop fighting with him and channel that energy into making this new life of yours AMAZING! Let’s face it, happiness and success is the best revenge.
