You are right. Many of our dreams is just for filing or our fears, but when they involve people around us write it in your journal and see what their outcome is. Some are not exactly as we dreamed it, but its pretty close. Some will not happen until a few years, so how can we keep track? I do because I have always been in a close community and I tell friends, sometimes they have reminded me. Now I tell my wife.
As for WHEN, I usually remember the people if they are older/grey-er or the surrounds. In the case of my son, the time is near because in the dream when they said the car crashed I was getting water from a neighbor since my tank had run out. In a few weeks, my water WILL run out and wont fill until June to September when rainy season starts. So thats my time window when he will not go to Mexico, Mid March to June.
I hope its not unique because that why I am on this forum so that i can find others to talk to and share with. I believe its not. I think people just need to pay more attention to those involved in their dreams and write them down. It just that when you tell the people in real life they think your crazy so you dont want to say anything. You keep it to yourself and get on with your life.
Most of the time I just tell my wife. She is used to it.
