Dreams have always been a way for our subconscious to explore our minds and figure out solutions to unresolved issues we may have. When you dream about someone you don’t talk to anymore, it can be the mind’s way to process your emotions and reactions.
Remember to not fear these scenarios – they will eventually help you gain closure in your relationships. So next time you dream about someone you don’t talk to, don’t be afraid to explore what’s going on – it might help you resolve your feelings and move on.
Dream about someone you don’t talk to anymore
1. You subconsciously miss them
Dreaming about someone you don’t talk to is a common occurrence. In fact, it happens so often that there are a few different ways to interpret it. The first is that the dreamer subconsciously misses the person they dreamed about, and they may want to reconnect with them.
Dreaming about someone who used to be close to you but has since distanced themselves from you is a way for your subconscious mind to remind you that there was once a connection between the two of you—and maybe even still is. This it’s likely because their absence makes us feel incomplete or unfulfilled on some level. It’s not just an empty space in our lives; it’s also a reminder of what we might be missing out on if we don’t reconnect with this person.
2. They have something you desire
Dreams aren’t just about what we like; they’re also about what we need. Another interpretation is that the dreamer has something that they desire from this person, but it’s not necessarily something tangible—it could be approval or validation, for example, or a personality trait they have been looking for in others ever since.
Maybe you liked how they were always there for you, or how they were honest all the time. You liked spending time with them because of these qualities, but ever since they left, you haven’t been able to find someone that fully clicked with you, and these missing qualities might be the answer. Be clear with the new people you meet and tell them upfront what you are searching for – this will help both of you and not waste any of your time.
3. They left a mark on you
Whether it’s a friend you haven’t seen in years or an ex-girlfriend that hurt you, these dreams can be pretty confusing—especially if you left on pretty bad terms. The possibility is that they left a mark on you and have made an impact on your life. If the person in question has been out of your life for a long time, it’s likely that the dream is a manifestation of how much they meant to you.
When we go through a breakup with someone, we tend to be impacted by it—even if the relationship itself was short-lived. When that person is no longer in your life, there might still be some things lingering in the back of your mind that need to be addressed before you can really move on. Even if they weren’t around for long or were just acquaintances, they marked your waking life — and dreams are the perfect place to process that and start healing.
4. You have unresolved issues with them
Dream interpreters say that a dream like this can mean you have unresolved issues with the person you dreamed about. If you’re still holding onto negative feelings toward someone who has left your life, then these feelings may be coming out in dreams as well.
If this happens, take some time to think about what happened between you two and try to find closure (if possible). This will help guide those emotions away from the dream world and into reality where they belong. Try to find them and talk to them, and see if they feel the same way – and even if they don’t try to resolve things as best as you can on your own.
5. You want them back into your life, but they are not the same
If someone appears in your dream and they aren’t exactly how they were when they were in your life—if they look younger or older than usual if their skin is different shades or textures from before—it may be because you’re longing for something different than what’s going on right now, and you want this person back into your life.
You might crave back the past relationship you want with a person, even if the two of you are strangers now. But no one stays the same – both you and they changed, and a new relationship won’t feel the same no matter how hard you try. Let them in the past and look at the new love possibilities in your life, and find someone that works for the new you.
6. You need to reconnect with that person
Dreaming of someone you don’t talk to anymore? Don’t feel bad, because some psychologists say it’s actually a good sign. According to dream experts, it means that this person holds the key to your healing and that you should reach out when you wake up and try to reconnect with them.
You need to explore your relationship with that person, and the ways in which they’ve impacted your life. The reason you don’t talk to them is maybe because of a fight or a disagreement – but it wasn’t any of your fault.
There’s still something unfinished business between you and that’s what will bring you closer. If you can work through those issues, it will help heal whatever it is that hurts inside of you.
7. They know you better than anybody else and want to get back together
If you dream about an ex, it’s likely that they hold the key to your healing. The relationship you had with them may have been difficult or painful, but they also provided you with some important lessons and opportunities for personal growth. This dream’s meaning might be a warning that they will try to get back into your life and have a relationship with you again.
If there are still things unresolved in your heart, resolving them will bring you closer to the peace and happiness that you deserve. If this is the case, then the dream might be trying to get your attention so that you can make progress on those issues. Remember there is a reason that person isn’t in your life anymore, and if they don’t prove their behavior changed, taking them back will just cause you more trauma and sadness.
8. A big decision is coming your way
Dreams about people you used to talk to, like exes or family members, are often precognitive—they can tell us what’s ahead for us if we’re willing to listen carefully enough. When we dream about an ex, it could mean that a big decision is coming our way, and it might be important for us to remember something from our relationship as we’re making this decision (or at least consider what they might have taught us).
In order to do the right thing, you need to figure out how to use them and what you learned from them as a tool for greater growth and clarity.
9. You are dealing with anxiety
If you deal with anxiety in your daily life, an interaction you had might have made you remember a person who also caused you pain in the past. So, what do you do if you keep dreaming about someone who has hurt you or left you behind?
First, take some time for self-care! If you feel stressed out in your waking life, then chances are a lost friend is causing you stress in your dream life too. So give yourself permission to take care of yourself first— go for walks, start a good book or cook your favorite meal. And if none of it works, it’s never too late to get help from a professional, as they will offer more specific advice and guidance through these hard times.
Having dreams of people that used to be a big part of your life is extremely common, even if you don’t talk to them anymore. Your subconscious mind still holds to them and the relationship between you, and maybe even wants to give you a message. But what do these dreams mean?
There are deeper reasons why these people keep showing up in your dreams: they can be a key to your healing, a window to the past, or simply a reminder of what you need. We hoped this article cleared up what these dreams mean, but if you still have questions let us know in the comments.
