Friends

(dreams)
Our dreams are full of symbolism with their messengers being all different types of people. It is very common to dream about our friends. These are individual who are emotionally valuable to us and we learn about ourselves through them. Dreams are very rarely prophetic, thus whether your dream was good or bad, don't expect it to come true. This dream is more than likely attempting to bring up uncomfortable feelings that you have about yourself or others. (Remember "uncomfortable" does not necessarily mean bad.) Dreams are created by our own thinking processes, our own thoughts (conscious or unconscious) create dreams; thus, the mind that created the dream also knows its meaning!!!
