Sad Dream Interpretation and Meaning

Sad Dreams Not So Sad

Often, when we dream of an emotion, we wake from the dream still feeling it. When the emotion is powerful yet negative, it is often the product of a nightmare. It would seem that to dream of sadness would mean that bad things are coming. There is debate, however, about the meaning of a sad dream.

Some say that to dream of being sad means that you are about to experience a positive change in the events of your life. They say that these dreams of sadness actually mean that good things are coming. Perhaps the sadness is actually a type of mourning for the way things are, and a way to let go in order to embrace the good things that are to come. Often we experience sadness at happy events, such as the birth of a child, a graduation or even a marriage. It is a little bit sad to leave one stage behind when embarking on a new, unknown one.

Others say that to dream of sadness means that you have a lot of work to do in the recovery department. You need to learn how to learn from mistakes and disappointments in your life and how to launch yourself on the road to happiness. You might be the type to dwell on the negative – a “glass is half-empty” kind of person, and your dream is trying to tell you that you needn’t do so.

Your dream of sadness might of course have the obvious reason that you are sad. If this is the case, pay close attention to what others might be saying or doing in your dream; they may be trying to help you deal with your waking situation.

  3. I had a dream just last night. It was scary and sad. Me and my parents were at a parking lot of a mall when people with weapons walked in. They started shooting everywhere and i dodged. I survived and didnt know my parents died. So after the chaos i went outside the car and yelled for my parents and they never came back. Thats when i sobbed. I look everywhere finding survivors. I walk into the mall finding my aunt (mom’s sister) and my cousin. Then this guard found the things i lost before. Me and my cousin then tried to accept what happened and left.

  6. I had a dream there was a wolf named “Wolf” who was a bunch of impossible colors like neons
    and pastels who lived in a forest with her best friend “Fluffy”, an all white wolf/Fox animal who
    went wherever she went. They had an idea to fly up in the sky, but they just floated up and there was
    like an ocean in the sky but it was made of pink milk and they flew through it. Weird, right? Well Fluffy and Wolf went to the surface of the milk and a wolf/raccoon like animal slashed wolf on the neck and she bled bright pink (think, candy gore) and she bled purple and black and they fell through the sky
    all the way back down again. When Fluffy fell he made a little “arf” sound and later the Wolf Raccoon hybrid held up a picture of Fluffy and said that he died. The Wolf Racoon hybrid “don’t be sad. He was evil, so it doesn’t matter.” I woke up really sad and this dream happened last night.

  8. In my dream I was so sad because I thought I had hurt and disappointed someone else after that part of my dream my friend was there asking me to skip class and stay with her. I’m not sure what this all means.

  10. I had the very saddest dream in my entire life, that when I woke up it was a dream I don’t know if I’m thankful that it didn’t happen or there is a message behind it. As soon as I knew it I just cried loudly and it really made my heart melt at that moment, and I prayed to God.😢
