From the dreams I remember, 50% of my dreams are anxiety-ridden, 30% are fun, 18% make no sense, and the remaining 2% are scary and involve ghosts, accidents, thrilling chases or death (most likely inspired by a thriller I watched.) It is the former 50% that had me curious today. For the longest time, I noticed a distinct pattern in these dreams. In almost all of them, I was agonisingly late for something. For example, my mother would be waiting to pick me up from school but there were so many obstacles that made me late such as me forgetting something and going back for it (many times) and even getting stuck in school overnight because she had left me. I was growing tired. The fact that I have this type of dream so often led me to believe that maybe there is something deeper to it: that maybe something in real life is translating into such dreams. Could it be something leftover from my childhood that has not been resolved?
