Crying in Dreams

When you dream about crying, it represents the sadness you have in your heart. Someone close to you are leaving or choosing to distance themselves. You question the actions they do, and don’t quite understand why it is happening and the only outlet is to cry because you are sad.

Not know the reasons why certain things happen the way it does is very saddening and frustrating.

It is also a time you remember the people that you cared about and they may have parted this world. Crying in your dream is a show of your true feelings that you have hidden from your waking life.

Cries of joy are rarely dreamed about.

  1. In my dream I was being distracted so I can be kidnapped then while I was getting away this mans dog bit my elbow I felt it, I got away and found out my friend was in on it, I hid behind cars and was screaming for help then It was daylight I was weak with some family I didn’t know and feel to the ground feeling as if my life was leaving my body I’m crying so hard saying I was sorry over and over again specially to this women’s son who hated me his name was Brent or Kent, as he walked towards me and I’m crying harder since I’m pretty sure I’m dying since I feel so weak saying I’m sry to him he starts to cry almost as if he is about to forgive me, as I’m crying I wake up in tears with half of the back of my thumb in my mouth, as I wake myself from crying so hard in my dream I realize I’m actually crying loud in my house with tears on my face and the Back of my thumb in my mouth just as it was in my dream. This is the time when you wish you had someone to call or text or someone to turn over to just to calm you down.

  2. Just had this awful dream… It was later in life for me I owned a business and I was downtown and upon helping someone outside. Tragedy struck, me and many others were shot gun downed. But at the same time I couldn’t find the bullet wound on me. I lived everyday in fear after the day I got shot. Everywhere I went constantly watching my back crying for no reason, close friends seeing me etc etc. contemplating suicide in the dream to avoid this huge fear I had on my shoulders… Idk :( just woke me up my nose is now all stuffy.
    Recently I’ve taken a break from smoking weed and I began to have more natural dreams. This is the first time I’ve had a nightmare that I was crying so bad that I’ve woken up. In a long time. I have been seeing a psychologist lately and the first ting I thought of upon waking was my doctor…
    Why is this happening!
    Anyone to help I can’t thank you enough!!!

  3. My dream was very vivid. I was at this love band club waiting for my ex boyfriend to get off from work. Lately I’ve been in and out of job interviews and in my spare time I would hang out with him. He has been very distant and cold towards me. In my dream he asked me why I was here? I said in hopes you can give me a ride back home instead of paying for a taxi. He said yes. Later on the night club closes, and then all of the employees left except him. I helped him clean up as he was packing up the music equipment. Since he has a strong case of PTSD he was telling me that he is now diagnosed with the highest degree of xanax. I tried to comfort him and said definitely no thank you from you Kim. I asked what is that supposed to mean. He said I don’t want a hug from a woman who looks like a whore in everyone’s eyes. I said “Are you joking me?! How do I look like a whore when I’m fully clothed, no cleavage out, and in some casual jeans? You’re only saying that because I have a very curvaceous body type who attracts most men. That’s the most shallow thing you can say to me when you not only loved but, know me inside and out.” then I ran off crying out of the bar into the middle of the street and left and decided to walk with police and juveniles to a they were headed to.

    And that’s when my sister woke me because I was crying in my sleep and she heard it.

  4. There is a statue I pass by everyday on my way to school. Last night I dreamed that it started crying, and tears were coming out of the statue. It didn’t move, but you can clearly see it crying. It freaked me out.

  5. I loved this girl for many years. Once or twice I told her how I felt about her. Her response was [something to the degree of], “I’m not looking for a relationship right now” or “I’m not very interested in you.” This took place from a year to about a month ago.

    Last night, I dreamt of her. She was in my bedroom, sitting on the floor. I was sitting on the floor too. I crawled over to her and looked into her eyes. She looked at me. She had red, teary (sad) eyes. I was not crying. She started crawling away from me. I called her and said hi. She replied hi back with a [sort of nervous, tired] smile.

    This was only a portion of the dream, of course. But I cannot find anyone who can “interpret” what it means when your crush (or someone else) is crying and your not. CAN SOMEONE HELP?

  6. i had a dream that I was crying in my sleep. I had a dream that my husband (who was deported) was finally coming to be with me and I was crying and people were saying “what happened why are you so sad?” and I said “these are tears of joy, I just received some really good news”

    I don’t know half the time what my dreams mean. sometimes I find myself looking on this internet for hours trying to find a really good site that can help me with some of my dreams but I’m never successful.

  7. I dreamed that there was a couple and I was going out to lunch with them. They had 3 or 4 children, can’t quite remember.
    Then I started looking at the children and I noticed that they all had the most beautiful blue eyes.

    I started to cry hysterically and I would cry even more when I continued to look at their eyes.

    I started to say ‘Praise the Lord’ and I continued to cry

    Any suggestions?

  8. I keep dreaming about my partner leaving me and I just cry and cry in my dream, often so hard I can not talk in my dream. Also everyone is very uninterested or sympathetic to me and they turn away. I just keep thinking, “but he promised to be with me forever.” and I am confused and crying. I don’t have any of these feelings when I’m awake. Why do I keep having this dream?

    1. My dear, you are insecure about your relationship. Perhaps subconciously you feel lucky to have your partner and perhaps you feel you are not up to your partners standards. Enjoy being together, if your partner leaves then thats what was supposwd to happen and eventually you will see it was for the best. Obviously insecurw, get over it and just accept that your partner is with you because they want to be.

  9. Not satisfied with the Christian meaning of crying in dreams. However, I could say that I felt sadness before I went to sleep because I received a regret letter after waiting for months. That mad e me sad but never cried in reality but I seem to have cried in my dream reflecting an emotion that was repressed. I maybe would encourage people to cry in reality when they feel sadness. I tend to belive that tears are prayers to God. He can comfort through His Holy Spirit.
