Always be yourself, have faith in yourself, and trust that by being yourself all things will be exactly as they need to be.-Platypus
Dare to be yourself! No matter what others think of you, you must always express who you are without hesitation in any circumstance. Real friends will always accept you for who you are and family will love you as you are. When we pretend to be something we are not we lose sight of our heart and our purpose. Part of being ourselves is the continuous self discovery of going inward and taking the time to nurture the things that make us happy.
You enjoy your solitude and have never really fit into mainstream society. You are comfortable with this because you revel in your own uniqueness and strength of character. You lean toward career where you spend a great deal of time alone – usually with some sort of sensitive electrical equipment (Programmers and Analysts). You work well on your own, are not afraid to use your imagination and logic to manifest what you desire in life. You are adept at examining your life experiences and know how to subtly share the lessons your glean from them without preaching.
To see a platypus in your dreams suggests that you are perhaps wallowing and dwelling on your emotions. It may also indicate that your repressed thoughts and subconscious material may slowly be coming to the surface so that you can deal with them. Alternatively the dream may symbolize your shyness and reservation especially in social situations. It is letting you know that you must work on your ability to socialize with others more.
