Usually my dreams are okay (or I have certain recurring frightening dreams), but last night I had a nightmare that seemed so personal. It was this: I was in another country (same language) with a bunch of strangers. We were together in some kind of recreation hall or ? Someone pushed me deliberately and I pushed back (not something I would normally do BTW). The person fell back and was injured. Everyone then proceeded to torment/torture me in various ways, although I tried to explain the other person had pushed me and all I had done was reciprocate. I tried many times to escape. I finally managed to escape, but something similar happened again with a different group, and I realized I was being "set up" and the person I hurt was not actually hurt. The torment they did to me was mentally awful and terrifying, such as dangling me over a central atrium from several floors up. And they physically tortured me but I didn't feel it (assuming because you don't feel that in dreams) so that part felt a bit unreal. At the end of the dream I realized I had been part of a play about bullying, but instead of having a Q and A session, the bloodthirsty audience (including many young children) wanted to see me tormented more, and were throwing things at me. A few of my fellow castmates stood in front of me to protect me from missiles but for some reason they couldn't stay (I felt they too were getting a malicious pleasure from the torment) and I was once again exposed. --------------- I should add that I was bullied as a child and this dream seemed so real other than the physical pain missing (and since I was a girl the bullying wasn't usually physical anyway). But the people bullying me during the "play" were adults. Interpretations? I would sure love to hear them.
