Sleep is to dream. However we do not necessarily remember. And when we remember the dreams we sometimes seem strange or very absurd. But not that much!
When we sleep, we do all sorts of dreams, from simple to complex. Understand its meaning might be difficult. Dreams are our unconscious productions, ie the elements of our personality which we do not have access when we are awake. These elements recur night. But as these are often things that bother us, they appear to us "coded" in the form of dreams. If this coding did not exist, your worries and your fears will appear to you in clear and does not sleep. Pleasant or painful, the dreams you "work" then. That is why some may seem to you more fun than others. But ultimately the dream is simply the "guardian of sleep" as Freud said.
The advantage of analyzing dreams
In fact they are like a bridge between the conscious and the unconscious. The understanding is a way to get better acquainted. The interpretation of dreams is also used in the context of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.
You can achieve in a dream something you want or you have desired to be awakened: for these, no problems, you easily understand what they mean. As for more complicated dreams, they often use the symbols, and examining these symbols, so you can decode them in part.
