Free and Professional Dream Analysis and What Dreams Mean
Sexually Molested in a Bar Room
Harassed by Man at a Bar
I was at a bar with a guy friend. We go our own ways and there is a man at the bar who won’t leave me alone. The man backs me into a corner, forcing a kiss and takes my clothes off. I smell alcohol on his breath which sends me into a flashback of my past of being sexually abused. I slam the heel of my palm into his nose and break it, then run to find my friend and tell him to get me out of there. The man follows us and tries to hit my friend who ducks and hits the man. My friend and I get outside; I’m crying, my friend is pissed off, trying to figure out what happened. I tell him about my past and what had happened in the bar.
Scared and real.

What it Means:
Sexual abuse in childhood does horrors to a child’s heart and soul. Your dream is telling you that the trauma of your early abuse is getting in the way of establishing a relationship and allowing true love and passion to enter your life, in a way that feels safe. The dream invites you to acknowledge the pain of your past and realize that you can’t heal it alone, the early pain scars that are too deep. There are support groups and counselors who can help. For your own happiness and welfare, explore those options.
Bottom Line: People do heal from past abuse and, in time, create wonderful relationships and families, but you can’t do it alone. Find a group or counselor and as healing unfolds, you’ll find a new life.
