Old friend

Old friend

I was walking out of school with my friend when I saw another friend sitting on the bench. I had to cross him when I walked out of the doors so he would see me anyways. As I walked past something inside me told me to do something like talk to him or do a friendly gesture, but instead I looked at him and didn't do anything. I knew he saw me and knew I was there, but he didn't even spare one glance my way which was really weird because i'd say we're quite good friends and sometimes talk on social media and I couldn't help but feel some sort of sadness, it's like I wanted his attention? Then I woke up, it seemed like this dream lasted forever.

    Hi Perlakute. If this were my dream, it does seem as if I am trying to connect in some way, specifically with this friend. In dreams, in my experience, people I know appear to at least re-present sides of myself that my psyche/soul wants me to recognize and learn from. In this case then, how would I describe this friend in the most accurate way - could this give me a clue about a side of me that I'd like to be closer to, but find it hard to get attention from?

            I would take this as possibly you're feeling self conscious for being shy and feeling down about that. I would think that maybe you would like to be better friends with this person too.

              You care about this person but you don't dare to admit deep inside you

                hmm..perhaps are you afraid to talk to him as he may have been upset recently?

                  Your unconscious shows you your true feelings towards this friend. You want the relationship to be more than you perceive that it is and that makes you sad, you feel that your friend is not as interested as you are.

                    It's a dream of truth.... all relationships end eventually... even if it's a lifelong partnership ending in death. What are you holding on to? What do you want from this person they haven't given you? Or what do you want to give that you haven't been able to?

                      There is a feeling of loss and ambiguity in this dream and may be a common collective feeling. After reading it again i thought of Robert Bly's poem Snowbanks North of the House. "Those great sweeps of snow that stop six feet from the house... thoughts that only go so far", "The toe of the shoe pivots in the dust...and the man in the black coat turns and goes back down the hill...No one knows why he came or why he turned away."
