Recurring dream neglecting pets

Postby Chechechelss » Tue Jul 11, 2017 3:25 am

So I keep having this dream every few weeks and it is so awful it disturbs me for most of the day.
Usually, I am house sitting for someone, or just moved in somewhere new and I discover there are a number of pets like dogs and cats outside that have not had food or water or shelter for weeks, even months (yet somehow still alive). I am terrified and usually try to assess the situation from behind the window and I don't face the situation because I feel so guilty and scared of what I will find. Sometimes I am alone but sometimes I am with my (recently broken up with) fiance who I am furious at because he failed to mention the animals before.
Sometimes in the dream, the pets have multiplied and there are babies everywhere which grosses me out and the parents have been eating the babies for food. Sometimes the animals are diseased and feral. But last night it was awful. As well as animals, there was also a child who I care for in after school hours care. He is 8 and is on the autism spectrum. In the dream, he was out there for weeks with no food or water and living with diseased animals. His hair had grown long and he was very dirty and confused. I was mortified. He complained of feeling very ill.
But the worst thing has to be, that even though I have neglected them, the dogs wag their tails and lick me and are excited to see me and treat me like their rescuer.
It's just awful!!!!!

I guess this means I am neglecting a part of myself or something? I don't have pets but I do house sit for people with pets occasionally- but have always fed them correctly. I have been extremely busy with study and work which led to the end of my relationship but wasn't the main cause. I'm not upset about the end of it, it was my decision. I just want to know why I am having these dreams so often!!! :( :shock:

Of course and you know what it is and refuse to admit it.
