Old friends are usually something conjuring fond memories of good times, but when they unexpectedly crop up in your dreams, it may leave you wondering why. Perhaps it was that you saw or experienced something which simply brought them to mind, but perhaps it was something more…
Dreaming About Old Friends
Similar to the symbolism of other early memories, dreams of old friends can be interpreted as feeling overwhelmed with all the responsibilities of adulthood, and maybe you should lighten your load a bit. Seeing an old friend in a dream means longing for those moments when there was less stress in life.
Alternatively, that friend you dream of can sometimes represent the lack of socialization and belonging you feel in your current life.
Feeling The Love?

How Might Life Change
