  • [intro] I’m an artist with some confidence issues around expressing my ideas freely into drawings. However before sleep I just spilled everything on paper, it looked good and boosted belief in my ability.
    [dream] In the dream, I was in a room with a golden retriever on a leash, immobilized, in the center of the room under table. I was petting him but the dog seemed depressed. I lifted him up and it peed on my chest a little (indicating pet’s sadness(like when depressed cats pee in the wrong places)). So I decided to free the dog so it could at least move around the room. Dream ended there but I felt happy about what I did.
