Is there an actual term for randomly remembering bits and pieces of dreams as if they were memories? This happens nearly every day to me.
Recently, I had a great dream about someone I have been trying to forget for the past four years. I forgot 99% of the dream as soon as I woke up. The funny thing is that as I was dreaming the dream, I told myself “Please let me forget this when I wake up.” However, I might remember more bits and pieces later on. Romanticizing the past is never a good thing.
