If you dream that someone did something nice for you should you thank them?

I have been going through a rough moment in my life and been feeling like my friends have not been supportive.

I had a dream that a person who I haven’t spoken to in about a year sent me a care package to help me feel better.

I don’t consider this person my friend, so should I chalk the dream up to coincidence and leave it at that, or should I send an email over to her telling her about the dream and “thanking” her for being nice in my dream?

No…’s just a dream, although if the dream actually made you feel better the next day you could tell them about the dream to make them laugh or something.

Really? Thanking someone for doing something in your dream? Would you yell at someone if they tried tokill you in a dream too?

Do nothing – be appreciative of good times and dreams while you are asleep.

I would but only because it would get me major cuteness cred.

You should dream that you thank them.

@janbb That was my answer :)

If someone called me to thank me for something I did in their dream I would consider it strange unless I was very close to them and they were mostly kidding.

I once had that, and I did mention it to them when I saw them next… which was a couple of months later…

If you must, tell them you had a dream. Thanking them, though, for something nice they did for you in a dream, and not in real life, would seem like a rebuke. Not nice.

If a friend did something bad to you in your dream, would you call them up and ask for them to appologize? No…

Dreams are often a means of working out real life issues. Maybe the one you dreamed of behaved kindly or is non-judgmental when those closer to you are behaving in the opposite way?
I would be very flattered to be told I helped somebody in a dream and if it led to a real life friendship, so much the better.
Of course, I do demand apologies from those who misbehave in my dreams, so, it’s possible that my opinion is based in insanity :P
