The Dream Theory Sigmund Freud or the father of psychoanalysis believed that we go through life in an Dream State. Through dreams we can understand our being and through these interpretations of dreams you can find your inner pathology. He believes that nothing you do occurs by chance. Every action and thought we have is motivated by your unconscious at some level. Like Frued I believe in order to live in a civilized society, you tend to hold back your urges and impulses.

As human beings tend to suppress our thoughts and actions. For example, you have boss at work that constantly gives you a hard time. Im sure during and even after a frustrating relationship with a coworker there is plenty of things you want to say or even do to that person. Maybe, you play through the scenario that…
