Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM DICTIONARY : This dream dictionary is based upon hundreds of real dreams and has been meticulously researched. However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

UPSET : Being upset in dreams is probably an easy symbol to connect to reality. Just ask yourself who was upset yesterday and how you dealt with it. The answer is probably very close to hand. We get upset when we cannot handle a situation or lack the confidence. We get upset because we are starting to realise that something is wrong with our lives and is starting to become a problem. We often get upset because of specific incidents or we have to deal with other who get upset.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Have you been stressed out or annoyed by some persistent problem?
- Have you been thinking about how someone will react?
- Do you feel unsettled in some dangerous or difficult situation at the moment?
- Did something unfair or unjust happen yesterday?

KEY WORDS : Stressed, not ideal, unsettled, feeling empty

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "The situation is really not ideal"
- "He is really stressing me out!"
- "I really want to make some changes but I am stuck with the situation as it is"
- "Its starting to become a problem"
- "The relationship is starting to fail"
- "I simply cannot calm him down"
- "I am a bit unsettled and need to know how he feels"
- "My ex has started dating someone else"
- "I am finding it difficult to accept - it seems so unfair"
- "My life feels empty without ..."
- "He was OK but I felt really unsettled. What we did was really risky"
- "I really was unwell"
- "I was upset but really tried not to show it"
- "I am not sure I can cope with it"
- "They did not seem to have confidence in me"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of being upset in dreams?

Being upset may merely reflect how you are unhappy about any given situation. It maybe shows that you are starting to form some strong views and realise that something is wrong about your life and change is needed. E.g.

"My girlfriend has recently moved house in Manchester (I live in Derby). "[Dream symbol - My boyfriend is really upset about everything]

"I have been thinking of my ex a lot lately because I am getting bored with my husband because he keeps emotionally draining me everyday and I have no more energy left or anything. !"[Dream Dictionary - I was really stressed out and upset]

"Recently I lost my job. I found a new job but I hate it with a passion and can't wait to get out of there but unfortunately I'm not in a position to be able to just quit my job without first finding another one."[Dream dictionary - wake up in the middle of the night upset and disturbed]

"I know that my relationship has failed. We constantly argue and its just a matter of time. I find it difficult to break up"[Dream Dictionary - girl is upset for some reason to do with her parents]

"I am trying to leave my husband, and my dreams seem to be reflecting this desire"[Dream Dictionary - I was upset and complained ]

"I woke up feeling quite miserable and sexually frustrated. "[Dream dictionary - a friend of mine who is upset ]

Being upset in a dream may reflect your realization about how serious a situation has become. E.g.

"I have been married for two years now but I have met this guy who I really like. I cannot stop day dreaming about this guy"[Dream Dictionary - husband was VERY hurt and upset]

Being upset in a dream may show that you have had some difficulties in communicating with someone close to you. There maybe fundamental problems in a relationship. E.g.

"The day before the dream the dreamer had an upsetting talk with her boyfriend. She was upset by his mood which became increasingly distant and manic. She wanted to hold out her hand and act as a best friend - talking out the problem. The glass represented a barrier between the two. She was separated in the dream but could see clearly what was happening. She just could not get through to him."[Dream Dictionary - increasingly more upset as I am talking to him.]

"My boyfriend and I have reconciled but I am having difficulty forgiving some of the things that were said"[Dream Dictionary - I was upset that he kept following another gal]

"My boyfriend has recently joined the army. He is currently in boot camp, and there is very little communication between us. He had been my best friend for two years, until about a month ago, when he gathered the courage to tell me how he felt about me. I am still not totally sure how we stand"[Dream dictionary - I got very upset at her ]

"I have been pretty wild recently. But my mom has been getting on my case. I wish my father was here because he had a special connection with me." [Dream symbol - I was upset ]

Being upset may show that you feel like you cannot express properly some feelings. Maybe a relationship has already finished. Sometimes it is inappropriate to express our true feelings. E.g.

"My wife of 20 years and I are separated for about 6 months, she has started dating, I have not."[Dream Dictionary - I was upset]

Being upset may show that you are finding it difficult to come to terms with some traumatic event. E.g.

"My best friend died 2 months ago. I am finding it difficult to accept."[Dream symbol - I got angry and upset ]

Being upset may show that you are finding it difficult to deal with some change in your life. E.g.

"I recently broke up with my girlfriend. My life feels a little empty at times"[Dream symbol - she seems upset at being dead ]

Being upset may show how calmly someone reacted in a recent situation. E.g.

"My brother just made me do it. He said that it would not cause problems but I knew it was dangerous and would get us into trouble"[Dream Dictionary - brother is not upset]

"I seem to have a lot of responsibilities regarding the heath of my family. I am helping with my husbands illness and my mothers. They also come to ask me about the medical conditions. I search things out on the Internet. But I really am not sure its with me looking such things up. Does it really help as I am not really qualified" [Dream Dictionary - people are getting upset]

"I did a lot of phoning around yesterday. I wasted a lot of time and mental energy for no reason"[Dream Dictionary - upset because time was moving ]

"My grandfather's mind and health have recently declined. My family was forced to place him in a nursing home, just yesterday and I truly feel as if he's not who he was before"[Dream Dictionary - I acted cool but I was really upset. ]

"I had am currently suffering a very bad case of flu"[Dream Dictionary - I was really upset ]

"I am going through a stressful time with my teenage daughter right now."[Dream symbol - I was nearly dead and not that upset about it]

Being upset may simply show you are unsettled by some problem you have had to deal with. E.g.

"I think this dream is a premonition of the next day. My sister in law asked me for some money to help sort out some troubles. This was getting out of hand and I really did not want to help. Before she asked for money I had been quite sympathetic" [Dream Dictionary - It made me very upset ]

"The person I dreamed about is leaving for London soon and wants me to take over the club. I am not sure that I have the confidence"[Dream Dictionary - felt really upset and depressed ]

"I have been thinking about future careers and have been maybe attempting too much. I have been getting bad signals off others"[Dream Dictionary - something upsetting me on the radio]

"There was this guy who is on food stamps who was annoying me in the supermarket by what he said. He should be thankful for the help he gets off the government instead of being so critical"[Dream Dictionary - upset by this ]

"I like to think of myself as mature but I know lots of girls who do have lots of boyfriends and complain about how badly they are treated"[Dream dictionary - girl seems upset with her boyfriend]

Being upset may show that you are anticipating how someone will react when you tell them about something. E.g.

"One of my tenants has been asking me to pick up her child from school. I am going to tell her I do not want to do this on a permanent basis. But I know she is not going to like this and will try to twist things that I say"[Dream symbol - snake was upset that I could not read its mind]
