Why do I keep having this dream?
Hello. I've been retired for 5 years now. And I am happily retired. Doing the things I enjoy daily. No complaints.
But...I keep having basically the same recurring dream a few times a month!
The dream is this: I am back working at the last job I had from which I retired. The people in the dream are the actual people I worked with.
Only each time I have the dream, the building and office area I worked in changes, but the people remain the same. And in the dream, I am working hard, and tell them I am retiring at the end of the year.
But when the time comes to retire, I keep working at the job and don't leave. Then I say to myself in the dream, hey, I'm retired, why do I keep working at this job, I can leave it because I am already retired!
Then I wake up!
As a short back story, I worked that job for 11 years, and I did not like the job but they had a great retirement package and as I was a temp worker for 9 years previously, I had to take the job or starve to death!
I was totally mismatched for the job and the corporate environment. My last year at the job was very tough, new management came in and they made it clear they didn't want me, the older worker, to stay so they gave me two of the biggest projects in the departments history to complete, I think hoping I'd quit. And of course treating me poorly. They eventually replaced me with two younger people. But I stuck it out and now very grateful to be retired and out of there!
So I welcome any comments about this crazy dream I keep having. Thanks!!
