We are living organisms and our biological objective of life is to grow and reproduce. Now if we add the social prospective to this basic concept of living organisms, we must ensure healthy life of our offspring (love, education, health, money…). So, a life without dream would be to work hard enough to be a able to use your capabilities to earn enough money to support your family.
Now, that was very idealistic view of life. Most parents “dream” that their children should achieve much more than them in their lives (like the objective of evolution). But surely “dreams” like to become richest person, greatest scientist etc. are not necessary for living. Moreover many times we have to pay huge price for chasing our dreams like less time for family (which is actually the reason for our existence), more stress, less friends, etc. I think that “dream chasing” is like drug addiction, it becomes inseparable part of your life and leads to various negative effects. So, I would like to ask:
Should we dream?
Maybe, working hard enough to fully utilise our capabilities is what dreaming all about.
