Any emotion you feel in a dream – even if it is someone else in your dream with the emotion – it can be directly connected to that same emotion you have over something in your waking life. What is upsetting you the most right now? What is causing you sorrow. Is it something from the past that still upsets you today when you think about it? Or is it something right now? Pay attention to the other symbols and actions in your dream because they are trying to help you with this issue.
