16 reasons you’re dreaming of someone who did you wrong

Dreaming of someone who did you wrong is far from uncommon. 

You see, what this person did to you, is haunting you in your dreams. It could be because you can’t process what has happened or because of other many, many reasons. 

Are you curious to find out exactly why you’re having these dreams? Well, you’re in the right place! I’ll tell you everything you need to know about your confusing dreams. 

Here are 16 reasons you’re dreaming of someone who did you wrong:

1) You’re trying to make sense of what happened

As if dealing with this person in real life wasn’t enough, you now have to deal with them in your dreams. 

What gives?

Sometimes, when something happens to us, we feel so completely overwhelmed that we can’t process what’s happened. This is often the case when a breakup happens or when we’ve been betrayed. 

So when you dream of this person, it’s because your mind is trying to make sense of everything that happened. 

This is totally normal. It just means that there is a lot of stuff going on in your head that you need to process. 

2) You can’t stop thinking about the past

The farther you get from someone who wronged you, the less often you think of them. Right? 

Well, it’s not always the case. Sometimes, there are some things that stay with us and we can’t stop thinking about them. 

Maybe it’s because we’re subconsciously trying to understand what happened, or maybe because we’re feeling guilty about something that happened between us and this person (even if we didn’t do anything wrong).

Whatever the reason, these thoughts are still there and they could be causing you to dream of this person.

3) You have unresolved feelings for this person

Dreaming of someone who did you wrong means that deep down, you still have unresolved feelings for them. Maybe you understand why they did what they did in an objective manner. 

Even so, you can’t get past your own feelings about this.

Your mind still tries to sort through these complicated feelings and emotions. You see, when people get hurt, it’s very common for them to feel anger and resentment.

This means that you might be dreaming of this person because you’re having trouble letting go of the pain that they have caused you.

Even though you’ve made up your mind that this person wronged you in your mind, you still aren’t completely over it. 

4) A gifted advisor can tell you why you’re dreaming about him/her

The points in this article will help you find out some of the reasons you might be dreaming about someone who did you wrong.

But what if you’d like advice tailored to your unique situation?

A gifted advisor can answer all sorts of questions and give you the guidance you’re searching for.

Like, what is your dream trying to tell you? Is the person who did you wrong trying to communicate with you through dreams? Is this person a representation of yourself?

When I spoke to someone from Psychic Source after going through a rough patch in my relationship, they really helped me out. After months of not feeling like myself, I was finally able to see my situation with better clarity and direction.

Not to mention, I was extremely impressed by how kind, empathetic, and understanding of my unique situation they were.

In a reading, a gifted advisor can tell you whether your dream means something important, and, most importantly, empower you to make the right decisions when it comes to your life.

5) You want to move on but can’t yet

Sometimes, thinking about the past can stop us from moving forward. 

If this person was significant in your life, chances are you want to move on and forget everything that happened. But your mind keeps bringing up the past and won’t let you.

Dreaming of them could be a way to try and move on from what happened, but it is also a sign that you’re not quite ready to do so yet. 

Trust me, when the time is right for you to move on, it will happen. Until then, just try to let go of the past.

Don’t know how? You can start by taking action and by setting your mind on a positive path. 

6) You’re not ready to totally forgive them

Feelings of anger and resentment are normal when we’ve been hurt by someone. It means that we’ve not fully forgiven them for what they did. 

As mentioned above, sometimes understanding why things happened won’t help you feel better about it. 

Is this you?

If yes, you could be dreaming about this person because you’re not ready to totally forgive them yet.

There is a chance that you’ll never forgive them, but if you want to be able to let go and move on with your life, it’s important that you at least try. 

7) You feel unsafe in your current situation

There may be a variety of reasons why you’re dreaming about someone who did you wrong; especially if you’re in a situation that you don’t feel safe in. In fact, your mind may be trying to warn you about it. 

Your dreams may be a way of trying to make you see something that you can’t see for yourself. If you feel unsafe in your relationship, at work, or in a friendship, your dreams may be trying to alert you to this. 

They may be trying to help you see that you need to get out of that situation and feel safe again.

In other words, your brain associates the image of a person who did you wrong with the feeling of being unsafe.

8) You’re still in denial about what happened between the two of you

A lot of times, people who are betrayed end up in denial about it. This is often because we don’t want to accept that this person could have been so cruel and hurtful towards us.

And if we don’t accept that what happened was real, then we can’t work through the pain of being betrayed by that person.

So, you might be dreaming of someone who did you wrong because you still can’t believe what they did to you. 

But, if you’d like to come to terms with what has happened, I have a suggestion for you:

I mentioned earlier how speaking to a gifted advisor can reveal the truth about the meaning of your dream.

Rather than just analyzing the reasons in the hopes of getting answers, a gifted advisor can give you real clarity on your situation.

And the best part of speaking to the folks at Psychic Source?

Not only can they give you guidance on understanding your dream, but they can empower you to make the right decisions when it comes to your life in general.

9) This person insulted you, and it’s stuck in your head

Look: people insult each other, all the time.

However, it can be a very hurtful experience when it happens to you. 

If this person insulted you, it’s likely that it’s still stuck in your head, and you’re dreaming of them as a way of trying to get it out of your head. Your subconscious mind is likely reminding you of what happened and trying to help you move on.

In addition, people often dream about people who did them wrong because they want to work through a situation.

For example, you might be dreaming of someone who did you wrong because you want to get past the relationship you had with them.

So, why do we dream of this person if we want to move on? 

Well, sometimes our dreams contain symbolic messages that point us toward our own healing and growth process. Make sure not to miss them! 

10) You have unresolved anger towards this person (or maybe even guilt)

Let me ask you something:

Do you have feelings of anger or guilt towards this person?

If you do, your subconscious mind will likely be reminding you of it and helping you to work through it. 

Dreaming about this person could be a way of helping you to find closure and to gain control over your emotions.

You see, your subconscious mind takes care of a lot of things for you. It’s the part of your mind that deals with these kinds of situations. 

That said, if you’re feeling persistent anger or guilt towards this person (even if they did you wrong), you might want to re-evaluate why you have these feelings and what they could mean to you.

11) It may be a sign that something else is wrong

Want to know another reason for your disturbing dreams? They could show you that something else in your life needs attention.

This is often the case with nightmares. If you’re dreaming of someone who did you wrong, it could be a sign that something else is wrong in your life. In fact, many people have had dreams that have revealed some serious issues in their lives. 

For example, some people have had dreams about being attacked by someone who did them wrong. Their dream was not a reflection of the real world, but it revealed other issues that they needed to address in their lives.

So, you might need to consider what else is going on in your life and think about why your brain has decided to bring up a past hurt.

Dreams are rooted in symbolic representation and interpretation. They may contain elements that make sense to the person who’s dreaming, but they may not necessarily be sensible or relevant to anyone else. 

In this way, dreams are often very personal in nature, as well as individualized.

So, if you’re having these dreams, it’s important that you pay attention to what’s going on in your waking life. 

Maybe your brain associates a person who did you wrong with some kind of problem or issue in your life.

12) You feel helpless at the moment

Sometimes, we feel powerless and helpless when an unpleasant situation between us and someone else occurs. 

For example, maybe you felt like you had no control over a situation and didn’t know what to do. Maybe you felt like nothing that you did could make things better.

So, your mind might be reminding you of this helpless feeling in order to help you find a way to move forward. If you have dreams of someone who did you wrong, this could be a sign that you need to work through a situation in your life that gives you this kind of feeling.

In other words, your subconscious mind is trying to tell you that there’s something wrong, but it can’t find the right solution by itself. 

13) Conflicting emotions are overwhelming you

Whatever happened between you and this person, it’s clear that you’re still feeling conflicted about it. You might be experiencing guilt, anger, regret, and other difficult emotions about what happened. 

This is likely causing you to dream about this person. How do I know?

When you’re dreaming about this person, you may feel a range of emotions that you can’t seem to reconcile while awake. This can often lead to feelings of depression, anxiety, or paranoia. 

So, to get to the bottom of this, try to focus on the emotions you feel during the dream. 

What is the person (or you) doing or saying that is causing you to feel a strong emotion? 

Why do you feel the way you do?

Answer these questions and you’ll be one step closer to finding out why you’re dreaming about this person and what you really need to do with the situation. 

14)  You feel obligated to help this person out

You might feel obligated to help this person out because of their relationship with you or because you feel like you have to for some reason. 

For example, you may have a friend who did you wrong and who is in trouble, and you keep dreaming about him or her. This could be a sign that you feel obligated to help them out and that you’re being haunted by them in your dreams. 

This can also happen if you have a family member who is in some kind of trouble. You may feel as though you have to help this person out. 

And it’s this precise feeling that could be the cause of your dreams.

15) This person is your soulmate and is trying to tell you something

Who is the person who did you wrong? Is he/she a soulmate by any chance?

The reason I’m asking you this is because soulmates can contact each other in dreams.

Maybe your soulmate did something unforgivable to you and is now trying to rectify the situation. Or, maybe there are some unresolved issues between you two, and your soulmate is trying to tell you what’s really going on. 

Either way…

You need to listen to your dreams if a soulmate is involved. There has probably been some kind of real-world connection between the two of you (even if it was just brief), and that may be why they’re able to communicate with you in dreams.

16) He/she passed away

Here’s another surprising reason that could explain why you’re dreaming of someone who did you wrong: he or she passed away.

Now, don’t freak out! Numerous experts believe that dreaming of the dead is perfectly normal.

It happens because your brain wants to continue communicating with the person who is no longer alive. 

In addition, if this person did you wrong and you didn’t get the chance to forgive and forget, your brain is trying to make sure that you’re not holding on to negative feelings about the situation.

So, if you dream of someone who passed away, maybe it’s time to let go of whatever happened between the two of you. 

You may feel upset, lonely, or even guilty

But there’s nothing you can do to change the situation. It’s time to forgive and move forward if you want to get rid of these dreams once and for all.

What does it mean when you dream of someone out of the blue?

Let’s say that you didn’t think about this person who did you wrong for a long while. But then, out of the blue, you started dreaming about him or her.

Maybe you didn’t feel like you had any reason to dream about this person. But here’s the thing: dreams often come to us when we least expect them.

They spring up unexpectedly and at the strangest times, so there’s a chance that you’ll dream of someone who did you wrong, even if you try to steer clear of him or her. 

So, if you start dreaming about someone who did you wrong without any warning and for no obvious reason, what does that mean?

The first thing that you need to know is whether or not this person shares the same characteristics as someone else in your life. Why?

Because it’s possible that your brain is trying to tell you something about someone else in your life instead of that wrongdoer.

In other words, your brain may be sending you a message about someone else in your life.

Why do I keep dreaming about the same person from my past?

Have you ever started dreaming about the same person over and over again? For example, maybe you keep having recurring dreams about an ex-partner. 

This could be a sign that your subconscious mind is trying to get your attention. It’s possible that you’re dreaming about this person because he or she was the cause of some kind of problem in your life.

And if that’s the case, you may want to find out how you can resolve the situation. Maybe you ended things with this person a long time ago. But he or she is still haunting you. 

This can cause a range of negative emotions and problems in your life now. So, if you keep dreaming about an ex-partner (or someone else who did you wrong), it’s time to find out what your subconscious mind is trying to tell you. 

It could be as simple as getting closure on something that happened a while ago or as complex as finding a way to forgive the person completely.

Either way, you have to get to the bottom of why you’re dreaming about this person. 

What does it mean when you remember your dreams?

This question is easy! Scientists have studied what happens in our brain when we dream, and they’ve even found out why we forget most of our dreams in the first place.

After all, it’s been proven that humans dream up to 5 times per night, which means we’re dreaming about 1,225 times per year. 

So, why do we only remember a small amount of these dreams?

Scientists have found that the types of dreams that we remember and the times that we tend to remember them have a lot to do with when we wake up (during or after the dream).

Studies have revealed that dreams are more likely to be remembered when people wake up from a dream. On the other hand, if we wake up after the dream ends, it’s unlikely that we’ll remember it.

Final thoughts

Dreams are a true reflection of your subconscious mind. They can be very revealing and can sometimes show you things that you didn’t even realize you wanted to know about.

If you are dreaming about a person who did you wrong, you have to figure out what your subconscious mind is actually trying to tell you.

These dreams typically signal that it’s time to forgive someone who did you wrong. And if this is the case, you’ll finally be able to move on – no matter how long ago things happened. 

Can a gifted advisor help you too?

If you want specific advice on your situation, it can be very helpful to speak to someone with special intuition.

I know this from personal experience…

A few months ago, I reached out to Psychic Source when I was going through a tough patch in my relationship. After being lost in my thoughts for so long, they gave me a unique insight into what my future holds, and the confidence to make the right decisions when it comes to love.

If you haven’t heard of Psychic Source before, it’s a site where gifted advisors help people through complicated and difficult life situations.

In just a few minutes you can connect with a highly intuitive psychic and get tailor-made advice for your situation.

I was blown away by how kind, empathetic, and genuinely helpful my psychic was.
