Love and Hate

Dear Peregrin,

The dream i have had is very weird. I dreamt that one of my friends who is a boy was in my kitchen eating chips from the local chip shop with one of his best mates, who i do not know as well. He was sat near a computer which i wanted to go on. I went over to the computer turned it on and went onto msn messenger to talk to my other friends online. Him and his friends then pushed me up against the wall with their chairs and started looking at me, the boy who is my friend then told me he loved me. This is when i woke up, but i later went back to sleep and had a dream about the total opposite..The same boy came into my kitchen grabbed a knife and pulled it up against my throat i was screaming for help but nobody came to save me they had all left. The dream ended with him still holding the knife upon my throat. There was about 10 minutes between these two dreams.

I find it very weird how i can dream about him loving me but the wanting to kill me. Please can you help me decide what is going on


Good morning, Jessica.

It's a strange fact that love and hate are very closely related emotions. It's very possible to do both, and it's equally possible to be confused in waking life about how someone feels about us.
But your dream isn't really about love and hate - it's more about love and fear. My guess is, the fear of getting hurt. And this, too, is a very common feeling. It may not be this particular guy that you want to be close to, but it's someone - and the idea scares you. So you don't know what to do.

I suspect that your subconscious is trying to tell you to be careful, and not trust too quickly in this particular case. Most likely your fears are a bit out of proportion with reality, but there are many different ways to be hurt.

Pleasant dreams,
