Goodbye (Farewell) Dream Meanings and Interpretations

16

Goodbye (Farewell) Dream Symbol – Dreaming about saying or experiencing a goodbye can have a devastating impact on your life if you misinterpret it. For this reason, it is very important that you not give too much weight to dreaming about a goodbye, just as it is important not to give too much weight to a dream about death. Dreaming about saying goodbye is generally only a sign that something in your life is going away.

The problem is that you might dream about saying goodbye to your father and it is really a sign that he is about to sell his vehicle. These dreams are reliable only in one fact: something in your life is going to leave in the near future. What that something is almost impossible to decipher except in the most vivid cases.

For young people, farewelling your parents is a sign that you seek greater independence. It can also mean there is a serious illness or grief on its way into your life. Parting ways with a good friend or a boyfriend is a sign of disloyalty and mistrust.

  3. I had a old boyfriend I lived with 17 years ago, and was an alcoholic (which is why I left) appear to me in a dream, which was the current time frame (I was in my Jeep) he came up to my open passenger window and said “Hi Baby, I wanted to tell you how very sorry I am the way things turned out, I still love you, but have no other choice but to say goodbye.” I woke up on a frantic crying state and after a week, I was able to get in touch with him. Via text he told me he was ok, but it was a text, He said we would get together for lunch, but it’s been over a month and I have not heard from him. I have yet to see him or hear his voice. When I woke up, I was terrified that he had died.

  4. What if it’s a goodbye that you’d never see them again and you guys hug and kinda cry a bit because in the dream you’re really good friends but in real life you never talk to them aren’t friends at all and haven’t even seen them in a while?

  5. I had a dream where I was with my sister and Mom and as we were leaving the store, I saw my ex near the entrance chatting to someone. Now I tried to ignore him like I usually do, especially since my sister and Mom hated him the most. We didn’t have a bad break up or anything, we actually stayed pretty good friends for a while, he and I were close even after the breakup until we drifted apart so I personally didn’t have any hard feelings, but when he noticed me he said he had to talk to me. Now, recently I found out he was leaving to join the marines, so in my dream I knew it was about that. We stayed together and talked privately and reconnected on what had happened since we drifted apart and then he was hugging me and taking me back to the car. He said goodbye, but told me he missed me and wished we could’ve stayed friends like before whatever made us part and then I woke up.
    I found it weird on how realist it felt, and especially since it was about him leaving for marines. Lately I’ve been having more and more dreams of him and it’s I usually either him missing me, or him reaching out to fix what happened between us, not romantically but our friendship, but this dream just felt left me feeling like I had just spoke to my old friend.

  6. I dreamt that I was saying goodbye to one of my teachers bearing in mind she had already left a couple of months ago and I was quite close to her. I dreamt that she was in her classroom saying goodbye to other students and I ran in to find that she had her bag on and was just about to leave, she then said that she had a message for me and she whispered “Thank you” to me and I woke up…

    I had a dream where I was saying goodbye to my boss. In my dream I said “I’m going back to new York now” (my boss in my dream was my real life boss, and I live in new York. So I’m kinda confused) in my dream my boss and I were close as I cried when we hugged and said goodbye. As we hugged he said “if you ever need anything, let me know” when I woke up it felt so real. Anyone know what this could mean? I’ve never had a dream like this before.

  9. i saw a dream where i met my ex for minutes along with my friend in some cafe where he shows his hands with mehndi and said now he realises why we get apart, he is ok in his married life, and asked me when will i get married and asked my age, i replied and thn in few minutes he left the place avoiding me went out, stayed downstairs in order to see my face i hesitated to show my face, as i was angry from inside still not recv4ed answers to my questions nor did i dare to show my love and real feelings to him. i stand stiff and then he escaped, may i know what this dream represent. it just keep my eyes open after that.

  12. In my dream I was in middle school (I’m an adult now) and it must have been the final day of school because there was a dance I was avoiding attending but I rode my bike around the school saying goodbye to my old classmates. We knew we would never see each other again but what I was experiencing was not sadness but almost pride in knowing these kids would do well in life. (A little backstory to clarify, I hated these kids in school. I was picked on by the students I was seeking out to say goodbye to.) but in my dream they looked at me with pride as well as regret like they knew what the teasing had done to me

While going to her home we were passing a field and the only thing on that field was a big tee per looking thing that was smoking out of nowhere all we seen was smoke coming from it. So I asked my father what does that mean cuz he’s and indian and he’s like she passed away. So my husband and In laws started crying. We did make it to her home, talked to her husband. He asked if my husband could do a presentation/memorial service for her at class she taught at a college.

  14. I dreamt my Dad was saying goodbye in a loving tone of voice (he is still alive). I was sat on the grass brushing frost or smoke (wasn’t sure which it was) off a bed of white daisies. I said goodbye back but I did not want to turn around and look at him.
