I had a dream last night that a friend that passed away when I was 16 - my best friend at the time actually - was wedding dress shopping with me.
I used to dream about her a lot… at least once a week after she passed away. In each dream, she would never speak to me. She would just glare at me. The dreams disturbed me and left me feeling extremely unsettled, sick and eerie. Sometimes in the dreams she’d be a ghost, other times I would find out that she had been alive all along but hiding out. Other times, she had come back to life. The last dream I had of her prior to this was almost exactly 5 years to the date she passed away — and in this dream, she finally spoke to me. I can’t remember what she said - it wasn’t significant - but what was significant was that a counselor told me that it would take me five years to finish grieving. It took five years for her to respond to me in my dreams.
Last night was the first dream I’ve had since then - and that was 6 or 7 years ago. I can’t figure out what it means, and pardon the phrase, but it’s haunting me.
