Dreams About Breaking Up – Meaning and Symbolism

Subscribe to our Youtube channel about Angel Numbers:

Throughout life people meet their potential life partners that they choose to date that person, while dating they meet each other and then decide if that person is the one for them.

The process of dating can be complicated sometimes and at that stage you should know if you want to proceed with that person or not.

Unfortunately with relationships you never really know what is going to happen that is why there are people who avoid settling down completely.

That fear is completely normal, maybe immature but not strange at all.

The idea od giving a part of you to someone and to trust them completely is scary because people can leave at any moment, you spend a lot of time with someone and you give them years and years of love but then one morning they just change their mind.

When thinking about it the whole idea of love is messed up, but at the end of the day we all just want that one person who loves us unconditionally for who we are.

As said earlier it is all messed up, you meet someone then you break up and after that you meet someone new.

Most of your life is all about finding your soulmate, for some people this becomes an obsession because they fear of being all alone in this world.

So 90% of the people have already broken up with someone or they will at least once in their life, of course there are people who fall in love and then they stay together forever.

There is no rule about these things, people come and people go that is life.

So break up can appear in your dreams for two main reasons: either you are going through one or you are scared to lose your partner so much that this appears in your dream.

If you are going through a break up right now it is completely natural to dream about it, the whole process of breaking up is stressful and painful so you mind can be over occupied with your emotions so it affects your subconscious state.

Or on the other hand if you are in a happily committed relationship, marriage these dreams appear because you are afraid of the thought that they could leave you for someone else or for something else.

On the other hand perhaps someone from your surrounding is going through a break up and that left a mark somewhere in your brain.

Another case scenario is that your parents or a married couple you have known for years is going through a divorce and that is hard for you to proceed or it comes out as a shock.


Break up in a dream can symbolise insecurity and mixed feelings about something.

It may represent the fact that you are holding onto something so tightly but even you know that you have to let go of it.

That doesn’t necessarily refer to relationships, perhaps you are still living in your past or perhaps you are still working somewhere where you do not belong.

There are numbers of reasons that might be a cause of the appearance of this type of a dream.

These dreams may also represent your current state of mind, you feel overwhelmed for a particular reason.

Breaking up in a dream may suggest that something is coming to an end very soon and you are already aware of that but you do not accept it.

Maybe this dream is a clear message from your subconscious to change your perspective and your way of thinking because it is making a negative impact in your life.

Your habits determine your future,  they are created by your mind so when you are focusing on the wrong things instead of self-improvement then you are likely to have a huge problem at some point in your life.

It is kind of a defence mechanism from your mind, you will always be hurt or disappointed if you do not start with accepting things that cannot be changed.

Just try and see things as they are and accept the course of this life because change is what life is all about so you can deny it or accept it and move along with it

There are so many reasons for a break up and there are so many ways to break up with someone.

Some break ups are peaceful while others are a ticking time bomb.

When a couple breaks up it doesn’t necessarily mean that they lack love, but perhaps they want different things out of this life or for example one wants to have kids while other one doesn’t even want to hear the idea of having them.

Other reasons could be cheating, lying, not appreciating or making time for a partner, moving into a different country, being separated for too long, etc.

You can have a dream about break up in all sorts of scenarios , perhaps you are breaking up with a person that you do not even know.

All of that has a special meaning, sometimes deep but other times it is a product of everyday thoughts.

Dreams are tricky sometimes, they reveal your deepest fears and desires as well as your troubles and mistakes so while finding the meaning behind your dream keep in mind that you need to remember all of those details well.

These dreams are not good or a bad sign, they reflect on you and your life so don’t worry this dream doesn’t mean that you are going to really break up with a partner of course if you even have one.
