  2. I had a dream of my grandparents getting divorced, but then I helped stop it. Then my parents were getting divorced and I tried to stop it but then it ended and I woke up.

  3. I had a dream that I went away to live on my own in a flat and I checked my phone to see that my mum was really angry, swearing at my dad and had left the family group chat. I texted her and she didn’t answer so I called. She answered and I asked her what was going on, she said that her and my dad had gotten in an argument and now they were divorcing. When they divorced, my mother kept living in the house, but my dad couldn’t afford to get a flat or a house or anything, so he had to live on the trampoline in my backgarden..? He put a big sheet over the top of the trampoline, put a sleeping bag, portable toilet and a portable shower in the trampoline and just lived there for the rest of his life. It was really strange..

    • The dream I had was. Both my parents had told me separately their not in the best of times in their relationship, And that their splitting up so if have to choose. So I was debating between my mom and my dad and so a few days later I asked my mom if I can be with her a few days a week and then my dad the rest of the week. She said no, and then I started crying my eyes out and left back to my room to keep crying.

  4. Last night I had a dream that me and my husband fought before I got on the city bus to go to my college class, I’m not in college though, and my bus driver had to stop and get gas and it made me late to my class. I got there and my professor was mad I was late. So, I showed her the late pass I got from the dean and she refused it. I told her to talk to the bus driver and she refused that, too. So, I told her that I would talk to the dean or someone higher because it was bull**** that she was behaving this way. Then I blurted out that me and my husband were getting a divorce. I started crying saying that I can’t lose this class because I’m going through a lot and it’s been hard for me. So, then she gave me a weird look like she knew. When I woke up I was sweating and my cheeks were wet. Maybe I cried on my sleep. I mean… We have been arguing a lot lately about finances and me being insecure like I am. But, I’m happily in love with him. I don’t understand this dream.

  5.
