Free and Professional Dream Analysis and What Dreams Mean
A Man Who Controls
A Controlling Man
There is a man who I think is supposed to be my father. Whenever I ask him to do anything, he says no and gets very angry. I lock myself in my room and do what I want to and need to do; he starts beating on the door, screaming and threatening me.
Main Life Issues:
Employment and a relationship.
Someone is insensitive and unresponsive and reacts aggressively.
Father: Someone who generally supports, helps, understands.
Asking someone to do something: Stating one's needs, requesting attention.
Always saying "no": Not responsive to someone's needs; does value input.
Gets very angry: Out of control, overreacting.
Screaming: Forcing self on others, hearing only oneself.
Threatening someone: An aggressive reaction.
What it Means:
If your boyfriend is actually bad tempered and unresponsive to your needs or wishes, the dream is a warning. Such traits can escalate with time and your scared feelings in the dream may mirror the discomfort you feel in the relationship. If that’s the case, for your own safety, get out of the relationship before you lose your own empowerment and strength.
Or, if you have a boss or an employer who acts like a tyrant, the dream indicates that you feel powerless at work. In that situation, you can choose to go off and do your own thing, but in a work environment, that is unproductive. Your only option is to cooperate, do your work, and be quiet until you can change jobs. Even if the boss is not someone you like and is actually unpleasant, acting rebellious gets you nowhere. It only brings more anger, which makes the work environment unpleasant for everyone.
Bottom Line: Only you know which version is true in your life. In either case, take control and move on to a better situation as quickly as you can. Meantime, stay calm and do your best.
