Are you a dreamer?

When I was a teenager I used to walk to school with a couple of friends. It took us almost half an hour and one of those friends used to entertain us as we walked with the dreams she had in the night. She was a creative dreamer and she remembered her dreams in great detail. I have another friend who is a dreamer, not frequently which is just as well because his dreams influence the way he feels for the rest of the day. Most of his dreams take the form of warnings, so they disturb him. I'm not much of a dreamer, mine are confusing and I forget them as soon as I open my eyes, except for one dream. When I was a young child I dreamed I was drowning. that dream has haunted me for years. How do your dreams affect you?

I have been wondering why some always dream the frightening dreams and others tend to dream of the happy things .I think If it has something to do with dreamers' mindset , experiences and sleeping position.They say ,if you put your hand on your chest when you go to sleep,you are apt to have a nightmare and feel like something presses heavily upon you.

Personally, I can't say that is true. I fall asleep like that all the time. I also have a dog who likes to lie on top of me. I haven't had any nightmares.

I'm pretty much like you where my dreams are also confusing, and I also forget most of it as soon as I get up in the morning. But in terms of personality, I think I am a dreamer. I've always thought of doing great things, helping lots of people, and going further than most. I've realized some of those dreams. But as a faulty-trait of a dreamer, these 'goal-posts' are never fixed, are always moving ahead. Thus, I continue to dream.

I have never let my dreams affect me at all. Coz I have always believed that whatever I see in my dream doesn't mean it would really happen in real life. But when I was a kid, and dreamed of one cute guy from school, well, it starts to be real when I would often see him and remember the dream I had about him.

Hi friend, I think every person is a dreamer. Without dream, we cannot fulfill our goal. Before implementing something, we must set a plan. This is our dream. But we should not dream, which does not have any bearing with reality. Have a very nice day.

Yes, I am. Dreams occur as part of our subconscious mind. And for me it really affects my daily life. After an hours of sleep and woke up, I'm confused why i know the details of my dreams. Sometimes there was a feeling of happiness, excitement, sorrow, and guilt. There was really the best dream I've ever had. I've wished to dream it everyday, but it didn't happen. Anyways, it is crazy to say but dreams changed me a lot in the way i talk, react and communicate to people.

You should try to use a dream journal. Keep it by your bed. When you wake up write down what you dreamed. Even if you don't remember much, just the feelings it gave you. The more you do it the more you will start to remember.

When I was a kid I dream to be a soldier and depend the people from aggression but when I see people being unjustly arrested and seems to be denied with their rights to have a good lawyer I dream to be a lawyer

Dreams as they say is a figment of imagination, lol! Although sometimes it really does kind of make me think once in awhile, remembering some vividly, but in any case good or bad dreams, it ain't true, right? And i guess it's best to take the good ones and forget about the bad ones, lol!

I am a dreamer and I do believe they have a purpose. For some people dreaming is their subconscious trying help them, in many different ways. Dreaming is a window, into onesef.

When I get a dream and it gets stuck to my mind, I try to figure out what it means. If it is a good dream,mi write it down In my journal and it gives me a lot of ideas. Sometimes I get a lot of my ideas from dreams, let it be a new design or thoughts I could put into writing. I like dreams, they give me visions of things I never knew I could do and will do.

It must be quite an asset to a writer to have dreams that inspire them as yours do. I think your subconscious mind must be very optimistic and creative.

My life would be purpose less without dreams. I would sleep bad and waking up in the morning would be extremely boring. Dreams work are electricity for me to charge me everyday. After having mentioned about the philosophical aspect of "Dream" I will come to the about the dream that we have sleepin. I remember most of my dreams. I take them pretty seriously. Those are hints taht my sub-conscious is giving to me. And I would like to stay connected.

I get woke up so much around here or don't get much sleep that I don't remember my dreams much. When I am sick enough to have a fever I have the same reoccuring dream of a man chasing me across a field. But rather than that I usually have some very weird dreams when I remember them.

I do dream but alot of my dreams are weird! I figured out some of my weird dreams are caused from stress! The more I will stress out the more weird dreams I have! Some I will remember when I get up and they usually make me grumpy! I have enough things to deal with and I have to remmeber that crap! GR! I do have dreams once in a great while were I am in deep water. I somehow end up in very deep water without trying!! I am scared of deep water and once I woke up after one of those dreams and it took like a few hours to get back to sleep! It was that scarey! This is what dreams do to me!

Myself and that girl you walked to school with might have gotten along. I also have creative dreams and I typically remember my dreams in great detail. I love my dreams in the sense that they're entertaining and have served as a great source of creative inspiration for me, but I do not consider them subconscious or prophetic messages of any kind. I used to, until I confused myself silly trying to interpret them.

My dreams are quite similar to both your friends. There are dreams I've had that warns me but most of the time tells me of stories. Sometimes my dreams involves a mirror world to reality and their messages are quite the opposite of "what is still to happen to me". I dream everyday, I know. But when I wake up with a start or something surprises me awake, I won't remember them until something triggers a feeling in me that would remind me vaguely of them. My dreams affect my control over my emotions and the things I do everyday. If I dream something bad, I would feel sluggish or won't wish to move at all. But if I dream a story, I would immediately jot it down on paper or on my computer to create more of it later. Else, I would just go on since I dream everyday. I'm used to dreaming so much that dreaming is a part of me whether I like it or not.

Like you, I don't remember much of the details of my dream after waking up. I do remember the emotion elicited by my dream.
