  1. In my dream, it was night. I was two different people: the person I saw on tv, as well as myself. My younger brothers wanted to go to the playground, bragging that it was new and wanted to try it out. Of course, their only obstacle was that it was locked. As we approached, people were on the playground. I tried numerous things to try and open it, when I realized the padlock wasn’t actually attached to the fence, it was just dangling freely on the door. Of course, my brothers were on the playground, but I didn’t give up. I was determined to open the padlock, trying about 3 keys. It didn’t help a loved one was pressuring me, trying to prove me wrong, and saying the whole “I told you so”. Maybe that’s what my dream was telling me…to stop not expressing my feelings and thoughts…

  2. I dreamt I found a brand new padlock on the ground outside a crowded cafe. I was with a boy I had just met and as we were crossing the road, I told him that I would keep this padlock with two keys on it. one in the lock and one hanging from it on a ring. I knew that all I had to do was return to the cafe and ask if anyone had lost it but I wanted to keep it so told the boy it would be impossible to find its owner. i remember thinking that really I didn’t need it as I had a brand new padlock at home but I wanted to keep it. I felt possessive about it. In reality I do not have a padlock at home. What do you think this means=
