Lately, I've been having a lot of dreams in which I see old friends and they either don't recognize me or don't want to talk to me.
A few weeks ago I had a dream that I was at a party and ran into an old friend. I went over to him to say hi, but he very clearly had no idea who I was and seemed very hesitant to talk to me.
Last night -
I dreamt that I had a bunch of old friends staying over at my house, but they didn't interact with me at all - we were all going to the same place, but they left before I even saw them at all, then once I got there they didn't acknowledge me at all, and when we were all ready to leave, they left without me.
These are all people I haven't seen in 2-10 years (depending on the dream) - which is a long time at my age. I have no idea why I'm dreaming about them. And I don't think there could have been any one triggering event because it's people I know from all different walks of life.
I know I'm someone who doesn't have an overabundance of friends, and I've accepted that. It's hard, but I accept it. But why do my dreams have to remind me that I used to have a lot of friends and I don't anymore?
It's really starting to upset me, and I wish I could find some way to stop these dreams.
