Has something bad happened to you in your life recently? Taken on financial burdens or lost a loved one. Maybe it is a pure sense of the banality of every day existence that has you motivated to get out of the lifestyle that you are currently in. Whenever you feel that certain aspects of your life have just become too much to bear, this can lead to dreams of acting.
You are trying to exercise a bit of escapism to get out of what it was that made your life so unlivable in the first place. Even if there is nothing negative going on in your life, it can sometimes just be interesting to put yourself in someone else’s shoes for a bit. You want to see life from a new perspective.
When you dream that you are the one that is acting, this means that you have had to do a lot of tough work recently. The work has probably been overwhelming and has taken an immense toll on your body and spirit. But you will not let this break you or destroy your mood. You realize that all of your hard work will come to pay off in the end and what you are doing right now is only a temporary state. Soon you will reap the benefits of your hard work and can be truly proud of all of the progress that you have made in whatever field you are working in.
Dreaming that you are acting can also show that you are trying to be someone else. This might mean that you secretly wish you were the person that you are playing in your dream. This can also be a wish that you were someone other than yourself in general. A dream like this would occur when you feel alone in the world or have touched on emotions of worthlessness and depression. Try not to let these thoughts get to you or they will begin to fester and really hurt your self esteem. Instead you should focus on enjoying the dream while it lasts.
It really is a very fun practice to act for an audience and you should feel no shame in participating in the fun amidst your dreams. You deserve to have just as much fun as other people and as long as you can do it without emotionally damaging yourself and can control the dream to make sure that no negative outcomes happen as a result, then you should enjoy it while it lasts. After all it is not every day that you are able to have such a creative dream.
