Most children do not understand how good they’ve got it. Because adults spend so much time trying to come up with reasons to get back to their childhood or ways to recapture that childhood glee, it is of course a really important thing to know that childhood is a fertile ground for interpretation. Childhood can be a time of stress or it can be a time of love and hope. Childhood can mean that you feel unintelligent or it can mean that you feel more accepted by your peers or more ready for playtime.
If you have a dream in which you are going through childhood again, what it means for you will depend on how you viewed your childhood. If you had a pretty carefree and fun childhood then it means that you are happy with your life as it is. You feel like this childhood reliving is your reward for all of the toughness that you’ve gone through recently and it also is a great idea because it means that you will be having a good and fun future too. If you have a dream in which you are reliving a hellish childhood that you were not too fond of then this means that you are not happy with your life as it is. You are thinking about all of the things that have gone wrong in your life because you are thinking about the stuff that’s going wrong with you now.
If you have a dream where you are going through childhood again it could also mean that you are feeling a little innocent or a little naïve about something that you’re going through right now. You are probably in a situation where you just don’t feel like you understand everything fully or where the stuff that you’re trying to understand just isn’t making it through. What you need to do is take a step back and understand that you are not going to understand everything. Sure it might make you feel like a child but the second that you start feeling bad for yourself is the second that you start to lose your own personal integrity. Don’t let this affect you in such a negative way. Instead just accept the fact that there isn’t much you can do about it and move on from there.
If you have a dream that you are living through a childhood that is not your own, then this means that you did not appreciate your own childhood. You are probably thinking about the negative aspects of your life right now and the choices that you’ve made incorrectly. You are wishing that you could go back and do it over or you are wishing that you could just be someone else. Don’t start feeling bad about yourself or feeling bad about your choices. Stand strong and realize that there is nothing you can do about it now but move on.
