Dream Dictionary Crying

Crying in dreams is generally regarded as a negative thing. The meaning of dream regarding crying usually has something to do with self imposed emotional repression. This could also be due to repression from an external source, such as a person that will not allow you to cry or a person that you are afraid to cry in front of. But for the most part, a dream dictionary will tell you that crying means that you need to express your emotions better in life. If you are unable to express emotions that are really important in life, then these emotions might show up in your dreams since it is the only place you can find true release. While it may feel good to cry in your dreams, crying is a negative dream symbol in terms of what it means about your everyday life.

When you cry in real life, it is usually done because you are emotionally overwhelmed. Something very powerful has occurred recently, and you want to put it all behind you, but you need to get your feelings off your chest first. The dream meaning is consistent with this idea, that you have some emotions that you feel the need to express. However, if you find yourself doing this in your dreams instead of your waking life, it could mean that you are poorly managing your own emotions.

Even if a dream involves someone else crying, most dream meanings agree that this is a simple case of projection. Your feelings are so woefully repressed that it becomes easier for you to deal with your emotions indirectly rather than directly. It is easier for you to handle it when you see someone else crying than if you see yourself crying in a dream. If you wake up out of a dream crying, then this is usually suggestive of another kind of repressed emotional hurt. You need to stop lying to yourself and to others and really deal with the subject of your sadness head on. This is what most dream interpretations agree on.

Another dream interpretation regarding crying is when you cry, but no one hears your cries. This is suggestive of feelings of helplessness. When you are feeling totally helpless in life, or feel that nobody is responding to you seriously or taking you seriously, then you may have dreams that nobody is responding to your cries.

When you wake up crying, this is similarly suggestive of negative things involving repression of negative emotions. If dreams are the only place that you can truly find a place to let loose your emotions, then you are truly having issues in life which are preventing you from expressing yourself. Sometimes dreams involving crying can be written off as flukes, but when this type of dream causes you to physically cry while you are awake, then this is one of the few dream symbols that acts as a clear sign that you need to make some lifestyle changes in order to achieve harmony again.

I tend to find that I wake crying a lot. I believe that this is 100% repressed emotion as I cannot express my feelings to my partner as he is cold with these conversations. In order yo manage my emotions, maybe I need to express this with someone else and it may stop!

This just happened to me lastnight and I cant express it to my partner either , he's not even my partner anymore just my child's father but it really hurts. I try to ignore the hurt because it isn't helping me. So I guess I'll just be crying in my sleep forever. I talk to friends but obviously that's not good enough.

I was crying in my sleep in one Sunday night and my grandma and sister had told me that I was crying in my sleep but I didn't have a dream that night.I guess I have been doing this a lot and apparently my sister didn't want to wake me up to have me stop because we share a bedroom and I woke her up and she said that she wanted to smack me and I didn't even know that I was crying. I have lost my last aunt on my grandmas side and my great grandpa also in my grandmas side I loved both of then so much and I truely miss them.

I had a dream of my best friend, Lorenna, dying. Shes totally fine in real life, but we got in a fight yesterday. I didn't actually see her death in the dream but i was informed about it, and i cried my heart out. We went to different places in the dream, like a restraunt, and my relatives house, and i would stare into space thinking, and once she popped into my mind i would break into tears. Everyone around me would comfort me, but it never worked. All i thought of is that i will never see her again or talk to her or tell her all my secrets like i do now. I cried a lot in my sleep that day. I would like to know what this means.

I often wake up crying maybe 5 times a week, usually it's when I am taking a nap, the dreams are hard to forget, usually my mother diasappears and never comes back or I am told she died or she leaves me with my dad, my childhood consisted of my getting beat and my ass kicked 80% of the time. Maybe I have abandonment issues at least I'm sure that has to be the answer, but that would never happen. I'm 24 years old and I'm not afraid of leaving my mom although I am worried about what she would do all by herself when she's not working or sleeping I left her once for 9 months and something happened I had to return home and She just seems happier when I am around. Anyway these dreams might revolve around that but the fact is she wouldn't leave me and if I would bring something like that up she would always tell me I would never do that, as long as I'm alive I'm here, so in that case I have no idea why I wake up crying all the time. Also right before I fall asleep I jump up as if something scared the living hell out of me or I feel like I'm falling or getting hit by something and a flash goes by in different colors right before I jump. Makes no sense

In the morning I'm honestly not sad, I'm pretty decent, but tears fall. (I should probably note it happens most of the time when I take out my phone....) but not all the time, when I read that it could be I'm managing my emotions poorly, I was really shocked. I made a dream catcher, and most of the time it works.... But for some I reason I still wake up, and all of a sudden I start crying....

I'm only 17, but I've been having really intrusive thoughts lately. This is a dream within a dream.
In my dream, there is a girl who is tortured by many scientist. I am one of the experiment conductors but do nothing to help the poor girl, although I feel bad. After closing hours, I go to visit the girl. I open her cell and find that she is nearly starved to death, and laying in a puddle of warm water. I release her from her helmet and other sanctions and hug her before I leave. The next day I go to work. We are about to perform an experiment and the caretaker for the girl is killed onsight. The girl walks up the stairs to the control room and targets everyone but me. The girl I had helped the night before is crying and says thank you and hugs me. Police shortly arrive to apprehend the girl and she starts crying again and reaching out to me and says "Don't! You're tearing us apart". I then wake up from my dream and see the same girl in front, staring at me face to face, in my room at night. She says "They took me away, didn't they...?"
Then I wake up crying from that horrendous episode from my dream.

I had a dream that I was with my family at a dinner outside and I had my friends with me, I then asked for a simple question to my dad and my mum if I could go round to her house then he stood up shouted at me and then they said no aggressively. I felt helpless and scared so I stood up like I usually do in normal day life if this happens and I was telling him and explaining why and don't do this and I went straight to my brother for help but then he wasn't there so I then climed up a tree that was outside with us to the very top and I was crying my eyes out, screaming and shouting and I looked down at the table and no one looked up,but I liked that I was away from all of them that I was now alone. Then my brother was there by the side of the table stood up with his hands open with a smile on his face, it made me feel better suddenly, so without talking I climed down and ran into his arms for a big hug. He then talked to my dad he listened and my dad said fine. But my mum still disagreed. He started saying I'll stop but in that case... He blaberd on about how we need to do things in the house even though he's never home, and when he is all he does is buy stuff for us make us feel guilty for not doing thugs around the house but then he does none... but as he said that I was crying not of sadness but of anger he had made me very angry I wanted to punch him. Then I woke up with dry tears on my face.

Had a very emotionally charged dream last night. Basically it was about a current situation involving our family. Anyway, at the end of the dream I was rewarded by a public figure for all of my troubles and given several medals and awards. I cried like a baby in the dream because my family is being put through some very difficult trials right now and to have that one person recognize what I am going through meant so much even in an unrealistic dream. I cried for a good ten minutes afterwards. I know it means repressed feelings because my husband is away for work and I have to remain strong for my kids I can't just break down. It would mean the world to have someone just recognize how difficult this is. I am practically a single SAHM right now to a 5 yr old, 2 yr old, two dogs, and a guinea pig, not to mention an entire house that still has to run smoothly. I am tired and no one seems to care. Anyway, I'm climbing off my soap box now...

I feel for you and understand your situation. Recognise that you are a wonderful loving person. You're not on any soap box - there are times in life when it all gets overwhelming. Hope things improve for you soon. Stay strong :-)

I had a dream I was at work and trying my hardest but the line at the register was getting longer and longer with angry customers and then I yelled me boss over and she was all sympathetic and said we all have bad days so I went to the shops balling my eyes out and tried to call my mum and she wouldn't answer then tried to call my stepdad and he answered and said "stop trying to call your mother is in the shower you can get here yourself its only 2 dollars" then he hung up and I ran into my friend still balling my eyes out trying to explain what happened and she just kept talking about herself and wouldn't listen to me and as she was ranting on my pop drove past so I ran alongside the car till they parked at the shops and then ran to my pop in tears and just hugged him and continued crying ... then I woke up balling my eyes out

I had a dream that my uncle/older brother was talking to me but I couldn't find him anywhere(he had died a few weeks before the dream). But it was like I was standing right next to him talking. But I couldn't find him. he kept saying Im sorry but I Love You so much and when I woke crying. But the dream didn't scare me it just frightened me a little bit. Ive had that dream once more more but then I never had it again.

Last night I had a dream that my father had passed away, and when I attended his funeral I wanted so hard to cry but I couldn't cry one single tear in the dream just a bunch of screaming. I never really knew my father growing up and do not really have a strong connection with him so I could see why I couldn't cry but still would like to know what this dream means. Can someone please help me out thank you my email is asanchez11592@aol.com

I had a dream that my dad was hitting and choking my dog and no matter what i did he wouldnt stop. I cried and screamed as loud as i could and he wouldnt listen to me. I called for my sister and she came in, trying to calm my dad down but nothing worked. I saw my dogs life fading away from his eyes. I woke up crying really hard and i didnt stop crying literally after 10 minutes. It was the worst feeling ever. Later that night i went to go get my dog and bring him to my room so he could sleep with me.

Last night I dreamed that my parents died. Both at the same time. I walked around the city they were in and cried, telling people what had happened but nobody would do so much as look at me. I woke up and had apparently been bawling in real life, my boyfriend had to shake me awake and held me. So lucky he was there but I continued to cry out of sleep. This is the only time it's happened to me.
