Dreams, Loyalty and No Regrets

I'm really lagging behind on my posts for Bare Your Soul!! Fail!! This weekend was just so busy with the baby shower, but here is my one-paragraph (I really tried) answers.

Do you have recurring dreams? Explain.
I wish I could remember all my dreams, at least one dream. But sometimes I just can't. One time I even put a notebook by my bedside for me to jot down everything I could once I wake, but that didn't work. 

But one type of dream that I do remember is running away from someone that is chasing me. I consider this a nightmare, because I wake up from this type in the middle of the night scared out of my mind. Oh and there is different variations, sometimes the person who is chasing me has a gun, or a knife. Sometimes there is a bomb, and a group of us have to run away together. It's really scary. No one actually dies in these nightmares, but still they are pretty frightening.
"Dreaming about being chased generally means that you are "being told by your unconsciousness that you're avoiding an issue or a person," - {Source} 

One word that describes me and why
That was harder than I thought. But I think Loyal is the best way to describe me. Roll with me and I will have your back until the day I die. I think I invest everything to my relationships, with relatives and friends, and become instantly attached to you. I will always care for you, no matter what happens.

To me loyalty means being able to tell that person the truth. It also being able to be there for the person through the good times and the bad. Being loyal is believing in the person, even when that person doesn't believe in themselves. Being able to protect your person from harm, at least trying to, whether it be physical or emotional harm. 

 I value my relationships so much, and the only think I ask in return is to be loyal to me. So if I feel like I have given you my trust, my loyalty to you, and you don't care about me the same way I do, then we have a problem. Sadly, I've lost some friends along the way because of this. 

If I could do it all again, would I?
If I could do it all over again.... hmmm. As I look back at my life, especially my high school years and my college years where things began to change, I would like to say that yes I would go back in time and do it differently. Choose different decisions, so that I wouldn't hurt myself or other people. But then I don't think I would be the same person I am today. And although I'm still far from the person I want to be, I like the person I have become. All the experiences that I have gone through in the last 10 + years have all shaped me to the person I am today. Yeah I've done some really stupid things, but I've all had some of the best moments of my life. I have no regrets. And yes I would do it all over again, the same. 

How has your childhood affected the way you raise your kids?
I don't have any kids. And although I one day wish to be a mom, children are no where in my life plan at the moment. My life is complete right now with my nieces and nephews, which I adore with all my heart.

But when it comes to my childhood, my parents raised us to be open-minded to different people, different experiences of the world. They also taught us the importance of education, by giving their lack of education as an example. They taught me to be humble and kind. And I hope that when I do have children, I could pass some of these lessons down to them.
