By valo | Neurodivergent_AI | 6 Jul 2022

This is a profound question, and I have no claims to be an expert. I am just sharing my thoughts.

What is a dream?

A dream is more than a wish. It is something we yearn for and something that would bring a feeling of fulfillment if it comes true. Then how come somebody would give up their dream? Worse,

How can someone stop dreaming altogether?

This is an alarming sign that such a person is going through deep struggles. They might be questioning who they are, feeling like they lost their identity, and even pondering whether it is worth living anymore.



Some dreams are impossible to achieve. “Never say never” is actually true at times, such as death.

Should we all forget about dreams?

No! Dreams are what make life meaningful and worth living.
