I can't seem to move past that crying dream I had... So much seems to be getting out in my dreams recently. And I am left wondering what it all means. About a month a go, I had a nightmare-type dream. It was so real and scary that I work up gasping for breath - it felt as though I couldn't breathe and I was going to die. It was the worst nightmare I have ever had in my life.
Anyway, I googled "crying dream" and this is what I found on http://www.dreammoods.com/dreamdictionary/c4.htm.
To dream that you are crying, signifies a release of negative emotions that is more likely caused by some waking situation rather than the events of the dream itself. Your dream is a way to regain some emotional balance and to safely let out your fears and frustrations. In your daily lives, you tend to ignore, deny, or repress your feelings. But in your dream state, your defense mechanisms are no longer on guard and thus allow for the release of those feelings that you have repressed during the day.
To wake up crying, represents some suppressed hurt or previous trauma that is coming up to the surface. You can no longer suppress these emotions. They need to be dealt with head on.
To dream that no one hears or responds to your cries, represents your helplessness, difficulties and frustrations in trying to communicate with others. You feel that your words are falling on deaf ears. Perhaps your dream is telling you to be more vocal and work harder to get your point across.
I think overall, that's quite a good interpretation of how and what I've been feeling. But I thought I'd always felt this way... Why it's all coming to the surface now, I don't know. I can't link it with anything going on in real life at the moment.
