You have burdens that it takes more than the weight of one person to carry. Something that good friends usually do is exchange problems. Perhaps it is time for you to do this with your friend in the waking world. Invite them over and talk to them about their problems. Exchange some banter about your concerns and share with them all of the things that make you feel insecure. They in turn can share with you some of their problems and you can have an equal exchange. Other people’s problems are generally lighter than your own so it shouldn’t be too hard to carry a bit of extra weight.
Sometimes we dream of things just because we can’t keep our minds off of them normally. If you feel like you can’t get your friend out of your mind then this might be one reason that they are showing up in your dreams. Why is it that you can’t stop thinking of your best friend? It might be prudent to ask yourself that question. You need to know why it is that you can’t stop thinking about them. Do you need to talk to them? Do you think that they may need to talk to you? After a certain number of these dreams, it may be time to call up your friend and see how they are doing just to see if it will get them off your mind.
Sometimes we dream of our best friends because we spend too much time with them. This is quite the opposite of not spending enough time with them, a completely different interpretation of what would essentially be the same dream. You can usually tell what type of message the dream is trying to convey by observing the behavior of yourself and of the friend in the dream. Are both of you acting fairly composed and kept together, or do you keep fighting and getting into arguments? If you are doing a lot of quibbling over nothing, then it might mean that you are subconsciously feeling that you spend too much time with your best friend.
Too much of a good thing is just a bad thing, so spending too much time with your friend could lead to a detrimental relationship overall. If you think that this is what is happening then it may be time to try and disconnect yourself from your friend’s daily habits a bit. Try hanging out with a new group for a change just for some new perspective, and come back to your best friend when you are ready for them again. This is the best way to make sure that you do not go overboard spending time with your best friend.
