It's common to dream about people that you see all the time, but what does it mean if you find yourself dreaming about old friends and acquaintances that you haven't seen in years?

Everything that you dream about is always up for interpretation, so if you dream about your ex-partner, it may not mean that you want to get back together with them. Dreams are not always literal. Dreaming about these people from your past may be a way to help you gain understanding of yourself, your behavior or your personality.

These people might have been people you respected or idolized, and perhaps you have been having doubts about yourself and reflecting who you want to be, and thinking back about those who you used to look up to.

Dreams definitely say more about you than the people who you see in those dreams. If you're questioning why someone would be taking residence in your dreams, you should pay attention to it, but focus on how they made you feel instead of who that particular person is instead.
