Dreams about fighting with someone can be interpreted in many ways depending on the context of the dream. It could be a sign of unresolved conflicts or tension between you and another person, or it could signify a struggle within yourself.
In some cases, dreaming about fighting with someone else may actually symbolize an inner battle between your conscious and subconscious minds. You are the conscious aspect and the person is the subconscious aspect.
Whatever the case may be, understanding what these dreams mean can help you gain insight into your thoughts and feelings that may not have been consciously acknowledged yet.
Common Dreams About Fighting With Someone
Dreaming About Fighting With A Co-Worker
Our relationships with co-workers center around collaboration and communication. If you dream about fighting with a co-worker, it can indicate that you are feeling frustrated when it comes to communicating with someone or working with someone.
Of course, it can also symbolize unresolved issues or tension between the two of you.
It could also mean that you feel like your efforts are not recognized or appreciated by them or by someone else who works with you.
Alternatively, this dream may represent how competitive the workplace environment is, and symbolize a struggle for power or control in the work dynamic – even if it’s not with that co-worker specifically. They may just be a symbol of the workplace and your feelings towards it.
Dreaming About Fighting With A Friend Or Family Member
Some of our closest relationships are with friends and family members, so dreaming about fighting with them can be upsetting. But when you look into the reason for the dream, it can help repair your relationship with them or your viewpoints towards them.
For instance, if you dream about fighting with your dad, this shows some strong emotions towards your dad. Maybe he is doing unhealthy things or is not giving you the attention you want from him.
Fighting with a friend or family member who is toxic to you could represent an inner conflict between your conscious and subconscious mind, such as wanting to maintain the relationship but feeling like changes need to be made.
The dream could also signify that you are unsatisfied with how the relationship is going and are trying to control what’s going on in your dream state when you don’t have a lot of control in your waking life.
Of course, it could simply mean that you are fighting with that person in your waking life.
And, it could represent unresolved feelings that need to be addressed. Maybe you aren’t even totally conscious of these feelings. For instance, if a friend or family member made a remark that embarrassed or hurt you, but you pushed your feelings aside, then fighting with them may represent your anger towards them for saying something so insensitive.
Dreaming About Fighting With A Stranger
Dreaming about fighting with a stranger may represent the challenge of dealing with unfamiliar situations.
This dream could also symbolize your fear or insecurity in engaging with people you don’t know, and your need to protect yourself.
It could also represent your emotions toward humanity or represent how you interact with the world. For instance, are you hard to get along with? Do you dislike a large group of people? Are you hostile to people for no reason?
Dreaming About Fighting With A Public Figure
We often attach meaning to public figures. We respect them or hate them or wish they would do something different. Sometimes we see ourselves in them. Sometimes we find them attractive and wish we could be in a relationship with them.
If you are fighting with a public figure, it’s important to figure out what they symbolize to you. Love? Fun? Wealth? Stress? Attraction? Disgust? Are you resisting any of those emotions? Are you upset that you are feeling any of these emotions?
Because public figures have a lot of influence, dreaming about fighting with one can also symbolize an inner struggle between wanting to conform and not wanting to be influenced by other’s views or opinions.
Dreaming About Fighting With Your Lover Or Spouse
If you are dreaming about fighting with your lover or spouse, it could represent a need for more understanding between the two of you. It may be that you aren’t expressing yourself clearly and need to work on better communication.
It’s possible that the dream is reflecting some issues in the relationship that have yet to be addressed and resolved. It could also mean that there is an imbalance in power, with one or both people feeling like they can’t express their needs or get them met.
In any case, if this dream keeps recurring or if it affects your waking life relationship with them, it might be best to discuss these feelings openly with your partner and focus on resolving any tension between you.
