I’ve been keeping a dream journal lately. It’s been about a month and a half and I’ve got some interesting stuff. I’m glad I decided to write them down, because I have since forgotten a lot of them, even the ones I wrote down. Going back and reading them is like reading a bizarre, nonsensical story that someone else wrote.
I’d recommend doing this because I’m not sure how, but I can tell its helpful. For example, before I started doing this, I never noticed that there are common themes in my dreams. In a lot of them, I’m fighting to be accepted. The scenarios are always different of course, but acceptance always plays into it somehow. Another theme is obstacles. I’m trying to get somewhere but there are too many things stopping me from getting there and I never quite make it. My dreams fluctuate between happy and sad, but the themes are very frequent either way. My deceased best friend has made a few appearances as well.
