dreamed I saw BF get shot in back while running toward me

Postby stormysea69 » Sun Apr 14, 2019 6:45 pm

I have never sought help with a dream before, but this one has me rattled. I lost an aunt and uncle about 3 weeks ago, so admit being a little down from funerals and death. Last night I dreamed my BF of 2 years was having a tantrum, ineffectively hitting someone. We were out on the street. The police were there. He saw me and started running toward me with his arms outstretched toward me. The person he was hitting pulled out a gun and shot him in the back. he fell face first onto the ground, arms still reaching for me, before he reached me. The police just stood there with their mouth hanging open. I am in the Philippines, I think their reaction is pretty close to the reality of their worth over here.
My partner is seeking help for some mental issues and is bipolar with a personality disorder. He is working on long overdue treatment, but his tantrums are well documented. What is my twisted up mind trying to tell me?

Hi Stormy,

Sorry to hear about you losing your aunt and uncle. You have a lot of unsettled emotions. You likely are not done grieving for your aunt and uncle. The dream draws on this emotion and on your partner with the tantrums. The thing is about dream deaths is that they are often symbolic of recreating yourself. Dying to the old self to become a new self. In this case, your partner seems to be doing that. This dream helps you continue your grieving process. There is some anger as there always is in grief. That is because we cannot control death. So you show that police, who should control the situation, doing nothing and you vent your anger towards them. This is healthy in that you are getting the feelings out.
So there is also some hope in the dream. The old tantrums are ending, so that something new and healthy can emerge.

Peace,
