Dreams

Dreams and dream interpretation used to be a hobby of mine. I have ignored it for a while as I deemed it far too subjective, but for the following dream, I think it’s a pretty easy interpretation that anyone can figure out. So I’ve been having this recurring dream about once a week for the last few month. I mean, it’s not exactly the same, as some of the details are different, but it’s essentially the same thing. Picture, if you will, I’m in a vehicle, sometimes a minivan, sometimes coup, sometimes a big boat of a car. Anyway, there I am, in vehicle, in the back seat. The vehicle is driving down this road. I’m not sure where it’s going, as the destination is never a part of the dream. In fact, sometimes, the lack of destination is a part of the dream. Anyway, back to the visualization. I’m in a vehicle, in the back seat. I’m alone in the vehicle. There’s no one driving it. For some reason, I need to steer, or brake, or something. Sometimes it’s traffic, sometimes it’s a turn in the road, sometimes a stop sign/light, you get the idea. So I’m in the back seat. I’m trying to get to the driver seat to steer. I struggle and stretch, contort myself and reach as far as I can. Yet no matter what I do, I can’t get control. Sometimes I manage to take control for a second and avert a major accident, but then I always fall back or fall down, whatever. I try to stop, turn, whatever, and nothing I can do ever works. I’ve been having this dream for several months and never paid it much mind, or thought about what it meant. I had it again last night, and this morning, as I got into my van to head to work, I realized that I’ve been having this dream to try and process what is going on in my life. I don’t know where I’m going and have no real destination. I feel like I’m not really in control and am just, usually, along for the ride, every now and then being able to make a change to avoid a major disaster. This is exactly how I have been feeling for the last few months. Hopefully one of these days I’ll find myself in the driver’s seat.
