It is a proven fact that sleep is a physiological necessity that humans require for their organism works properly. As for why we dream, the debate is still on the table of specialists and scientists. Many of them think that we only dream because our brain needs to filter out the junk we do not need and some ordinary people think that dreams are something magic.
Nobody knows exactly the true purpose of dreaming. It’s possible that dreams are used for people to consolidate its memories for things that are taking place in their lives.
Some people believe that their dreams reveal significant hidden truths and that it is very necessary to have knowledge about the meaning of dreams. Sigmund Freud said that the meaning of dreams and their content give us insight into our unconscious beliefs and desires.

It is for that reason that people are more likely to have a positive dream with a friend, than a positive dream with someone who does not like them; and people are more likely to have a negative dream with a person who does not like them, than a negative dream with a friend.
Almost everyone has experienced a dream that causes anxiety or fear. Some people dream of the same nightmare over and over again. over and over again. Others suffer nightmares whose contents change despite containing the same message.

This type of dream often reflects the dreamer’s inability to recognize and resolve conflicts in real life. In this sense, nightmares can be considered as a way of identifying and treating personal problems.
