Can you remember the dreams you had?


(Answer 1)


Well, not all of my dreams. I can remember those dreams of mine that frightened (scared) me, entertained me, or surprised me since those have an impact on my waking life (the reality of the awakened state of consciousness). However, there are those dreams of mine that I can’t really remember despite forcing myself to recall those dreams. 


(Answer 2)


Yes, and no – yes, I can remember my recent dreams, especially last night, I dreamt that I’d become a superhero fighting aliens that conquered (took control) the planet Earth. That was really entertaining that when I woke up, I just laughed at myself. And no because there are dreams of mine that are vague (unclear) that no matter how hard I try remembering them, I just can’t remember at all. 


Do you share your dreams with others?


(Answer 1)


Never! For me, dreams are really personal and they should never be shared with anyone else. I can’t recall (remember) that I share my dreams with someone even with my family. Besides, dreams don’t have any special meaning, they’re just the result of one’s exhaustion (extreme tiredness) from work or study. 


(Answer 2)


Yes, I do! I enjoy sharing my dreams with my friends or family, especially if my dreams are hilarious (very funny). I love to see my friends and family laugh with me while I narrate (recount) what I dream about. But there are those dreams that I can’t easily share with them because I feel embarrassed. 


Do you think dreams have special meanings?


(Answer 1)


I really don’t think so. Like I said earlier, dreams are just the result of one’s tiredness or one’s overthinking about so many things. In my opinion, there isn’t any special meaning behind every dream, but in spite of (regardless) my belief, I do respect those fortune tellers or those people whose job is to interpret someone’s dream. 


(Answer 2)


I believe so because dreams are a kind of signal or warning or an answer to the question that troubles the mind of the dreamer in his waking life. I’ve had so many experiences that my dream helps me make a decision in life. But I can’t also deny the fact that sometimes dreams can be meaningless. 


Do you want to make your dreams come true?


(Answer 1)


Well, I don’t really mind,  except for those dreams of mine that are terribly frightening. I don’t think I will enjoy living my life if my bad dreams such as the apocalypse (the complete final destruction of the world) or zombie invasion (occupation; conquering) will become a reality. 


(Answer 2)


Yes, for positive dreams such as winning a lottery, living in a big house, finding the love of my life, or having financial freedom. But when it comes to those dreams which I consider bad luck, God forbid (used to express a fervent wish that something should not happen)! No one in this world wants to make their bad dreams a reality.
