Dreams & Comments

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?

  1. So, I had a blog before that I had a follower that did nothing but criticize, complain, insult and blame me for everything that was going on in my life. I chose to allow this person to continue to say whatever she wanted, because I have always felt that I was the kind of person willing to allow others to express themselves…what I found ironic, however, is that when I went to follow this person’s blog, I was not given that permission…lol. It struck me as hilarious. Granted, I’m the fist person to say that you have the inherent right to allow whatever you want on your blog. It’s about your ideas and expressions and if you choose not to approve certain things, I wholeheartedly support that decision (not that my opinion matters, mind you), because your blog is about what you want! Period.

    Oh, and don’t even get me started on my dreams…my dreams are way bizarre. 🙂

  2. It is our uniqueness that not only sets us apart but draws us together. I would put anything on my blog I felt comfortable with sharing. As we all know we can’t control what others think of us (or our posts!), we can only control our reactions to anything they express about us (or our writing!). You bet it’s your blog and anything you want to share and are comfortable sharing should be shared. That’s my share!

    • Thank you, I appreciate your share! And I agree, our blogs are expressions of us and it is up to the reader to decide if the subject is worth their reading. I enjoy reading other’s blogs, as I can relate at times and more times than not I learn something. Thanks for your comment! 🙂

  3. This is your blog and you should be able to share whatever you want! Like you said, people can read it and comment or pass by without reading/commenting…and you have the ability to disapprove any negative comments…so, keep ’em coming! It’s a great outlet 🙂 🙂

  4. This is your blog! If someone does not agree or like what you say then they should just move along and find a blog that expresses what they like or respect you! I love to read different and that is what makes life fun! Very interesting!! Keep going Spear!

  5. Be true to yourself Spear. As a relatively new blogger I’m still holding back a bit with what I put in my own posts but I’m slowly opening up and realising that we’re all entitled to write however we feel. Enjoy your blog and continue to write from the heart – you have a huge supporter in me.

  6. As a “newbie” to blogging, I to had my reservations about how much to share. As I wrote more, I started to realize the best part of this was not the comments, it was the release of pain and anguish from deep in my soul. Even if no one paid any attention to me, I had let go of the things that had haunted me all of my youth. I’m still inspired everyday, and sometimes I will write about it. But no matter what, I’m a better person for having done this.

    • Absolutely, this is exactly the way I feel also. One reason for me starting my blog was to take the weight of my past let go of it and move forward. Thank you very much for reading my post and your comment. Hope you have a good day. 🙂

  7. good morning….its your blog to post what ever you feel like, and I like what you post….I have bizarre dreams myself….I used to look up the meaning but sometimes the meaning was more disturbing than the whack-a-doodle dream…LOL anyway the interpretations are just someone’s opinions of what they think dreams represents…so I just accept the fact that I have nightmarish dreams every so often and have had all my life…and let it go….the dreams I don’t like are the ones where when you wake up you can’t distinguish if it really happened or not it was so real…keep on keeping on my friend….kat

  8. Yes, you most absolutely should post whatever you want to on your blog!! I’ve come to realize that I love having my blog for a few reasons, but one of them is that it helps me to write, and to be myself. I’ve found that if I’m happy with it and don’t care if someone reads, then it is up to them whether to read it or not. But if I’m okay with sharing it and want it on my blog, it’ll be there! Don’t let anyone make you feel like you can’t share something you want to share, this blog is YOURS, and YOUR space. Do with it what you wish! 🙂

  9. Just wanted to reiterate what the others have commented: This is your blog, and should write whatever you feel the need to write. Quite frankly, I have a hard time wrapping my mind around someone who would make such a comment, but there are those out there, sadly, who have anger in their heart.
