Dream 497: When I’m nice, I get taken advantage of

A woman had the following dream:

I need help interpreting a dream. Well, actually two of them. 1- I don’t remember most of it, but the part that stands out was I had found the cat eating a mouse. I took it out of the cat’s mouth and found another mouse in that mouses mouth, so I grabbed it by the tail and pulled it out of the mouse’s mouth. It squirmed and fell and landed on my tongue, and all i could taste was mouse….very weird! 2- I was with Jeff (my hubby) and was explaining to him that if we couldn’t get along, then we needed to be friends because we are going to be raising these kids. I’d rather them see us as friends who respect each other rather than fighting. He was like “ok,” and suddenly there was some other woman there who was with him. Then I woke up and wanted to lose it on him, but realized I was just dreaming, and he”d have no idea why I was freaking out. So what do you think?

Interpretation

Animals usually represent instincts in dreams. A cat is a predator. A mouse is a vegetarian and is a peaceful creature. You are a rescuer. So the cat, in this particular instance, but not generally, represents your predatory or anger instincts. It consumes or overtakes your peaceful instincts. But what surprises you is that the peaceful creature you are trying to rescue, is trying to kill or be a predator to its own kind.

The second dream is a repeat of the first dream, only less graphically and symbolically. Your instinct to fight or contend with your hubby is replaced by a peaceful instinct to be friends. But you are betrayed by a predatory woman (or the predations or aggressiveness of your husband).

In both cases, you start out by trying to be a peacemaker, and then find out that you were betrayed, that your efforts to be peaceful resulted in your being preyed upon.

In one case, trying to replace your anger with peacemaking results in your being preyed upon by your own kind. In the human case, your efforts to make peace with your husband leads to fears that you’re going to be taken advantage of.

All of which leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

What does going to the bathroom and other people taking advantage of you in a dream mean?

:an we abuse your campsite?
Can we abuse your campsite?

Dream 349: Get Rid of this stuff now!

A woman dreamed that she was camping. Some people asked her if they could use her restroom. She said “Sure.”

She went to walk her dog. When she came back, the people’s kids were jumping all over inside the camper. Some more older people appeared. The campsite was overrun with about thirty people.

She noticed that her wallet was missing. She then noticed a woman going through the wallet. The dreamer asked for it back, and took down the license plate number of the van they were driving.

They begged her not to report them. She told them that she was going to report them to the police. The itinerant mob fled.

Interpretation

The setting of this dream indicated that it was going to be about how the dreamer naturally operates because she was camping in the great outdoors. At the first level of dream interpretation, each character in the dream is a different part of the dreamer’s personality.

When you go to the bathroom in a dream, you are getting rid of something that you no longer need, that you do not need to carry, and that will actually harm you if you keep it. I think the dream was urging her to not let people take advantage of her. The dream ended with her deciding that there were going to be consequences if she allowed others to take advantage of her.

The dreamer told me that the interpretation felt right. She said that she was prone to give too much without receiving from others. She needed to insist that others reciprocate her favors.
