I awoke from a dream this morning feeling oh so sad. I dreamed I was walking through city streets, there were people everywhere, in couples, groups, and crowds. There were people in restaurants, bars and shops, and I was alone. Being alone doesn’t bother me at all, in fact I very much enjoy being alone, but in my dream I felt isolated and alone among all those people. I felt so sad I started to cry, and then I woke up with a sob on my lips.
I cuddled my dogs, got up and fed my cats, had my coffee, even made some calls that brought me good news, but still I feel sad.
The sun is shining outside, the sky is a brilliant clear blue expanse, not a cloud to be seen. I think some dog walk therapy is in order.
Have you ever woken up holding on to strong emotions you had in a dream?
Is there a time when you have felt alone in a crowd?
