I’ll be real, I am a dreamer for life. But most of my dreams happen during my waking hours rather than in my sleep. I have my share of dreams in my sleep as well, but not a lot that I can remember so well.
I have read somewhere that dreams are born out of your subconscious mind, which plays out things in your head. Most of the “good” dreams I have had are various simulations of real life occurrences, which were fun. I have had dreams of traveling to fun places, different scenarios in life, and whatnot! Of late, I have been seeing dreams where my coworkers are involved too -it would involve some situation where we would hang out in a team meetup even! 🙂 It’s probably a side effect of the pandemic where my coworkers were the folks I interacted with most outside of my immediate family.
There is one dream that I remember clearly from my childhood though. It’s a nightmare. I would dream of a plane crashing near me. It felt so real and so scary. I have had that recurring dream so many times in my childhood, so much that it left me scared shitless.
However, as I grew up, and got plenty of opportunities to fly, I do not have that fear anymore. In fact, if you look at absolute numbers too – flying is safer than other modes of transport like driving! But it is to be noted that those dreams really exacerbated my fear for flying!
The most fun dream I have heard is that of a former Mathematics teacher from school, who dreamt of solutions to problems he could not solve, in his dreams. Now, those would be the kind of dreams that I could only dream of!
