I dreamed I was in this tiny rundown wooden shack. Very small, no beds. Papers & books, messy but not "dirty". The boards of the walls had little spaces between, where the wind & light leaked through. Very poor.
This is where we lived, this man and I. My mate. I know we were committed partners at around the level of commitment of marriage but I don't know whether we were married. I don't know anything else about him except that.
In my dream I had borne two babies. One was smaller than the other; either smaller or a few months younger. (Their gender was irrelevant and not made known to me.)
Some days/weeks/months after our children were born, my mate didn't return one day. He would never return again. My two babies and I were "us" now, without him.
I was not surprised at all, by his abandonment, nor did I blame, nor hate, nor feel anger, nor any other negative emotion.
I felt calm and simply accepted his abandonment as fact. I was rational as I logically began to mentally prepare my course of action and what this meant for us (my children and I). How I would have to adapt, the steps I would have to take now, the types of things which would now be necessary for me to do, and when, and how, and what would be prioritized. (It was like my INTJ side coming through, hardcore, even while I was unconscious, which is kinda nifty.)
I've had a few dreams with babies & children in them. Never one where my children's father was present or mentioned or relevent. In dreams where the child was mine, there was no father. And now this one, there is a father present originally, but he doesn't stick around, we don't feel love together, and my resulting emotion by his abandonment is an intense lack of surprise. Like shrugging my shoulders as though it was bound to happen, and transitioning immediately into single-mother mode, which felt normal and right.
My overall emotion in this dream was of leadership and practicality, logic; I was rather emotionally secure throughout. I had unquestioned faith in myself and my capability, which I took for granted precisely because it was so natural & ingrained.
