Missing my bus stop

Missing my bus stop

I was on a bus in my hometown with the intention of going to church, as per my grandmother's instructions. I remember looking out the window and eavesdropping on other passengers' conversations. At some point I realized I had missed my stop, and the bus was now taking me to the city mall, which was the end line. I had to get off and wait for the driver to finish his break and go back. As I was waiting with other people in front of the mall, I saw that my grandma was next to me, even though she wasn't with me on the bus. She said something but I don't remember what it was.

    How did you feel about your grandma being at the mall? Was it weird or totally normal in your dream? And also are you religious? Or your family?

      I was raised very religious (protestant) and had strongly religious beliefs forced on me by my family to the point of abuse, but never identified with the teachings, so now in my adulthood I'm trying to detach myself from all that. Also, in the dream I was just surprised to see my grandma there, but not completely shocked. Like I just thought she took another bus and got there, I wasn't weirded out or anything.

        It’s a little hard to unravel this dream since it really depends on your personal life. But maybe these questions can help you find the meaning of your dream yourself. You got on a bus witj a destination in mind but because you were busy listening to other people you missed your destination and arrived in an unplanned area, usually a mall represents unlimited choices, although you didnt mention about going to the stores, so this might not be important and is it just a place you know from daily life. So you got of at an unplanned area and meet your grandmother here, how do you feel about your grandmother? You dont remember what she said but do you remember her intentions? Was it kind, confused, judging? How did you feel about encountering your grandma? Did you feel lost since you werent on your right destination or did you accept it and went on? Is the busdrive your normal routine? Then it may represent a break in your routine, change, new places/oppertunities,... did I help a little?

          Yes, that helped a lot, thank you! I do tend to get a little carried away sometimes because I listen to others too much; forgot to mention that in the dream I was so immersed in that conversation that I stopped paying attention to the stations & only got off the bus when everyone else did. I do see what this is trying to tell me, to follow my own plans rather than let myself influenced by the crowd. Also, I guess I felt like my grandma was judging me for being at the mall instead of the church, also a subconscious guilt of mine that my family is disappointed in me for not being very religious
