Dreams About Abandonment
Are you dreaming of being left behind?
One of the most unsettling vivid dreams we can experience is when we are left behind by others in our dreams.
In life the fear of abandonment is arguably one of the most common most impactful fears that stems from early childhood. These feelings arise when an individual has a strong fear of losing loved ones. In our dreams however this feeling may be directed due to past childhood trauma, an unconscious fear of losing the ones you care about or about missed opportunities.
The reason why your dream of being left behind creates such anxiety because you dream not only wants to point to the ignored area of pain but to help you heal. Unfortunately you might need to do some digging to find the meaning of why you have been left behind. Even though it is normal to experience some degree of abandonment in your life, an experience as little as your parents leaving you at daycare could in fact spark these dreams from occurring.
Reasons why you might be abandoned in your dreams
- related to a traumatic event, such as the loss of a parent dying, separation or a divorce
- lack of confidence to be by yourself
- stemming from the child not receiving any emotional or physical care
- fears of your parents dying or a fear being alone
- if you suffer from separation anxiety
- being neglected or left out by your peers
