Dream about having nightmare states low self esteem and a poor self-image. You feel unsatisfied or unfulfilled with the current direction of your life. You are too overly concerned with what others think about you. The dream denotes something that is lacking or missing from your life. You are unable to forgive yourself for some past sin or decision.
Having nightmare dream points to your feelings of loneliness, either by choice or by circumstances. You are experiencing a loss of faith in others. You are putting off your goals for the sake of others around you. It is a signal for your inability to balance various aspects of your life. You are keeping too much inside and as a result, you are feeling trapped.
If you dreamt about having nightmare:
Do people think you are “too serious” at times? If you hear this too often, the natural reaction would be to take it as criticism – after all, you are only trying to understand yourself and others. Other people might actually be picking up on your dedicated nature to help the needy, to work for a cause. In order to integrate your inner nature with outside events, look into group activities such as “Walking for a Cure” or other athletic events which benefit a cause.
