Awakening by scream
Dream Interpretation: Awakening by scream
I awoke from the dream by the sound of my own scream. The scream I let out of my throat at the end of my dream was real and my frightened teenage daughter came into my room to see what happened.
But why the scream?
In the dream there were a couple of images that were flashed before me. It was the last one that evoked the scream. It was supposed to be a picture of my family but there was someone in it wearing a gorilla mask. They were tall and had faded jeans on along with a dark jacket or shirt. The gorilla wasn’t supposed to be in this image. It was unexpected. I felt so afraid and angry that it caused my to actually physically scream!
This dream came to me the night before the court hearing to finalize my divorce. The divorce process has been an emotional experience for me and I am giving custody of my 17 year old son to his father. I will be required to pay support which angers me because my son has made many poor choices that were unknown to me and his father for too long and his dad and I disagreed how to handle the situation which was the final breaking point in our marriage for me. Paying support only fuels my anger and hurt in part because my wages are relatively low and it feels like another blow to me. My husband didn’t request the support and said he would return it to me but I don’t actually expect him to. He is likely to justify receiving it and will keep it at some point if not immediately. Meanwhile work has been stressful. The company I work was sold twice this year and that means constant change, no time off and no wage increase.
The last year has been incredibly difficult.
