I was laid off from two jobs. One I had worked 18 years and the last was 4 years.
In my dreams, I am always with former coworkers and for whatever reason, I am always wandering from one part of the building to another and run into people and situations along the way. But I never seem to find what I am looking for.
For the most part, being laid off from two jobs, I had no closure in either job. It was not my decision to leave either job. So, my guess is that I have these reoccurring dreams due to unfinished business.
I had visualized years earlier that one day I would retire, have the congratulations...enjoy your retirement party and then walk away and would be done with that chapter. Since I never had proper closure, my brain is still searching for answers.
Just last night I had another dream that I was on a business trip and had to drive to a destination. I was so afraid of getting lost and had to drive in the darkness. I woke up very anxious.
I wish I had an off button on my head when I sleep!
