Working people spend a large part of their days in the company of their coworkers, which is why it’s so important to have coworkers who are reliable, cooperative and make a pleasant company.
Dreams about coworkers are common dreams for working people. The main reason is they are a reflection of their lives and the relationships they have with these people, regardless if they are good or bad.
Usually we tend to dream about our coworkers when we either have an excellent relationship with them or when we cannot stand them and have a difficulty collaborating with them.
In either of these cases, the dream about a coworker is a message from our subconscious related to our relationship with them, and it either confirms our happiness and satisfaction for having such a wonderful colleague, or it reveals our frustration for being forced to see and work with that person despite the negative feeling we have in relation to them.
To be honest, people dream about their coworkers more when they have some issues with them than when they feel satisfied with them. It is human nature.
When people are disturbed by some situation which lasts long and it happens continually every day, they tend to accumulate a lot of stress and anxiety which in turn reflects on their health and overwhelms their conscious as well as their subconscious mind. That is how disturbing subjects come into our dreams.
People tend to relive their daily situation in their dreams. If they can’t speak openly their mind they tend to dream about saying their opinion to that person in their dream and that is how our mind finds relief in situations where it is pressured to put up with something that it finds disturbing.
If you have issues and disagreements with a coworker or several coworkers, that fact is certainly going to reflect on your being and will most likely provoke dreams about them.
If you keep having dreams about coworkers, especially if you are quarrelling with them or not talking to them, it is essential to try figuring out the reasons, especially if in reality you get along with them fine.
It is important to figure out whether you have a part in the way you feel, or worse, if you are guilty for the worsening of your relationship with them.
Dreams about coworkers often reveal to us our true feelings for them and their details can describe the roots of our misunderstanding and bad relationship with them.
Of course, we can dream about getting along perfectly with our coworkers and that could be a reflection of our reality as well as a reflection of our desire to get along perfectly with our coworkers because in reality we don’t have a good relationship with them.
These dreams often reveal to us our repressed feelings and anger that we need to somehow confront and resolve because it is jeopardizing us in many levels. In the first place, they jeopardize our health, but they also jeopardize our job and reputation.
Dreams about coworkers could also reveal your competitiveness. They could also demonstrate how ambitious you are.
Maybe you are overwhelmed with the amount of work you have and you are working overtime and spending more time with your coworkers than with your loved ones, which is why they appear in your dreams as well.
Maybe you have some problems at work concerning your current projects that you cannot solve easily and you constantly think about work, which is why your coworkers are appearing in your dreams.
Often you feel that you cannot rely on any of your coworkers to help you and that frustrates you. Maybe you are being obstructed in your work by your coworkers and you don’t know how to prevent them from doing that.
In some cases, people tend to dream about their coworkers because they are physically attracted to them. In these cases, their dreams about their coworkers are a result of their fantasies about them.
