We admit that Inception really made us use our thinking caps. We left the theater with a number of burning questions: What is real, how is Joseph Gordon-Levitt so gosh darn adorable, and most importantly… what does it mean when you dream about an ex?
Luckily, not all of us have exes that come barreling into our dreams with guns blazing like Leonardo DiCaprio’s character in Inception does. But for most of us, past loves leave quite the mark on our subconscious. In some form or another, they are all lurking in the depths of our minds. Sometimes they bubble up in the form of dreams. That’s how the mind—and the heart heals.
These dreams can be unnerving, but they are completely normal.
