  1. My dream was I was crying because I was leaving and I said goodbye to a monkey, but this monkey in the dream loved me very much and was heartbroken that I was leaving. I dont have pets. And my goodbye felt very real

  2. I dreamed about my celebrity crush(he belongs to a kpop group) waving goodbye to me. We were about to ride a helicopter when he jumps off and waved goodbye to me. I repeatedly told him to come with me but he just stands there waving his hand and then disappeared. The way he disappeared was he turned into a big bubbles or transparent balls and then *poof* no more.

    I had a dream about saying goodbye to an ex lover that will always hold a piece of my heart but we can never be together in the dream we were both upset but he had to go since my goodbye dream I have not seen or heard from him what could this dream mean it’s been pulling my heart strings for months now

  4. I dreamt about saying goodbye to my mother, I was on my bed but I couldn’t see, I couldn’t move. It wasn’t me but something that was saying I was going to die in a whisper sort of voice. I remember I would get small strength telling her to wake me up it wasn’t me. There came to a point where it started laughing. So I woke myself up by pure will. And when I woke up she wasn’t there. So I searched up what it meant and now im kind of spooked.

    I dreamed there was a huge farewell party in my honour. There were many people some of whom I knew and others were strangers but everyone was dressed to the 9s. It was lavish and merry, people wishing me well and saying beautiful things about me. And I was there…

    • I dream about having to bid goodbye with an ex lover. We were on the same bus then when we got to a station, we both went out of the bus then bid goodbyes to each other.
