Friend Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Friend Dream Symbol – First of all, dreams involving your friends are very common and can be interpreted many ways. They could symbolize emotions and fears you have about that person in the waking hours or they may also be your mind projecting parts of yourself onto an image of your friend so you have an easier time dealing with a problem.

In other words, your dream friend may represent your alter ego, or the part of yourself that you keep hidden in your waking life. Ask yourself, what is your friend doing in your dream that you may be repressing in life?

Dreaming about a friend is a very positive omen. If, of course, that friend meets misfortune in your dream, then you should warn them in real life so to watch out for such things. Friends are our greatest and most loyal supporters. They are not always who we think of as friends.

In fact, our best friends might be those who we wouldn’t normally associate with. Because of this you should be very careful with this particular dream, because it might mean something different than you would have originally thought. If you dream of a pleasant situation with one of your friends it is a sure sign that you should spend time with them soon.

  1. I had a dream of my best friend saying bad things to me and leaving me with another person that i was friends with

  2. I keep having these dreams I’m on a family vacation with my childhood friends I haven’t seen in about 20 years. They are always extravagant (like on a cruise or really nice resort). Also I know it could never happen these days. Am I jealous of them cause of the way my life turned out or what? It’s always the same person who I never consciously think about.What dose this mean?

  3. Hi there,
    Thank you for giving me answers about this type of dream but I’m still not sure of how to interprete it…
    I just woke up crying ! :'( I wouldn’t stop. This is the first time it ever happened to me!
    About my dream: for some reason I was at uni (i was at uni 5 years ago) and I was late for my class. I walked in with my best friend (it was an animal looked like a dog and I could communicate with it) my teacher straight away pushed us out of the class cause someone was allergic to dogs. And by closing the door my friends neck got stuck in the door. I screamed open the door! And when it did I talked to my friend and asked if it was ok? But shaked its head to say no and collapsed then I threw water. It woke but then collapsed again so I screamed help. The teacher came out the genator too and I said call someone I don’t know a veterinary but nobody cared they wouldn’t care and I was trying to google veterinary as its life was slipping away. I screamed please help she’s my best friend! I woke up in shock bursting in tears as if I had really lost my best friend… N.b: I do not own a dog but my best friend does.
    How can I translate this dream? Please help. I’ve never felt so sad waking up and worried too…
