I’ve always been a dreamer.
Maybe not in the way you think I mean, but rather, I’ve always had super vivid dreams and no trouble remembering them.
I also, and I can’t emphasize this enough, love talking about my dreams. And yours! I love it all. One thing I’ve noticed as I’ve gotten older is that my dreams tend to really pick up in intensity and/or weirdness when my life picks up in intensity and/or weirdness.
Some dreams are really disturbing (you know the ones when your teeth fall out?) and then you google it and it turns out it’s symbolic of things you’re actually worried about in your waking life. Money, in the case of losing your teeth. I find something very comforting about this, almost as if I’ve gone to therapy, but without paying for it. It makes me feel like my mind and body are in tune and they are working out their troubles together and somehow releasing me of them through dreams. Crazy? Maybe, but I don’t mind and it keeps things interesting.
What about you guys? Do your real life worries manifest themselves through your dreams??
