About a month ago, I had a dream. This particular dream, I woke up and thought to myself, ‘That was a weird dream.’ I then grabbed my smartphone that is in a different room and recorded via voice what I remembered about this dream. I generally do not document my dreams, but this was weird, so I did document this one.
Several months ago, I had a dream and I wrote a post about it. That post had one comment; that I really did not care for, but I approved it anyway. I really am okay with other blogger’s comments; there have been a few that I did not understand what the comment meant in reference to the post. But, I will ‘Like’ it anyway and move on. I have had a few comments that were automatically sent to be approved and I choose not to approve them for reasons I will not explain here.
When I received this comment for that dream post several months ago; it upset me a little. The post was written exactly 1 month to the day of starting my blog. Being new to the blogging world and somewhat afraid to write about me and my life, I had to make a decision about this comment. I approved the comment and did not ‘Like’ it, but I wanted that fellow blogger to know, I appreciated the comment enough to approve it, but I did not appreciate it enough to ‘Like’ it. You remember a couple of weeks ago I wrote a post ‘Criticism – just words’ about my ‘fight’ response. I think that is what I was feeling with this comment.
When I comment on other blogs, I like what the blogger is expressing in their post. I express my appreciation, or support, or words of encouragement or I let the blogger know I can relate to the topic. I try not to give my opinion because that is all it is, my opinion. When I decided to write this post about another dream, I got to thinking about that comment on the other dream post. Should I disclose my dreams on my blog? But it is my blog, right? I should be able to post anything I feel that is relevant on my blog, right? You the readers can choose to read or not read and comment or not comment. The posts, this blog are important to me and I enjoy the writing and meeting of other bloggers out there that I now consider friends.
For the dream I had about a month ago, I performed research to find the meaning of it. It was difficult to find any meaning to my exact dream. It was that weird! I will say the dream involved a stage and tangled hair, and this is what I found –
If your hair is knotted or tangled, then it is symbolic of uncertainty and confusion in your life. You may be unable to think straight.
To dream that you are on a stage represents your behavior, manipulation of and relationships with others. It is telling of your interactions with society. You are putting up an act and not being who you really are.
Humm….maybe that commenter was right, maybe I should be keeping my dreams to myself. Then again, it is my blog and I should be able to post anything I feel relevant on my blog, right?
