Dream Interpretation: Interruptions thwart amazing meal

I have had the same recurring theme in my dreams for many years. I will sometimes dream that I am preparing to indulge in the most amazing meal. I can see and smell everything that is arranged in front of me. But each time I have never gotten past fixing my plate. There are always a thousand random things getting in the way of my actually getting to sit down and enjoy my meal. This last one I had, for example, first I had my two nieces come crying that they were hungry so I put my plate down to fix theirs. Then I would always forget something — like a fork, a condiment or whatever, that would stop me from eating my meal. By the time I finally get everything settled and resolved and get ready to chow down, I WAKE UP!! I can literally feel my frustration in the dream, so much so that I wake up angry! What is this all about?! Please help me…it’s “eating” me up!!   – Monica

This is a very fascinating dream theme that comes to people who are unable to nurture themselves for one reason or another. You often put the needs of others before your own. Your outer life is so full of distracting obligations and events that you never have time to “feed” the inner you. You know how to take care of yourself, you know what needs to be done, but every time you start to focus on yourself something comes along to interrupt. Are you too polite to someone that is taking advantage of  you? Are you enabling an unhealthy relationship? Are you a pushover when you need to stand up for yourself. Ask, “How am I not nourishing and nurturing my inner self? What distractions are keeping me from closing the deal on something?” Also ask yourself what in waking life makes you angry and frustrated. Answering these questions will give you a clue as to what things are triggering this dream and thus what areas you need to work on first. Good luck and be sure to let us know the details if you get this dream again.

This interpretation is dead on! Especially when you said this:
“You know how to take care of yourself, you know what needs to be done, but every time you start to focus on yourself something comes along to interrupt. Are you too polite to someone that is taking advantage of you? Are you enabling an unhealthy relationship? Are you a pushover when you need to stand up for yourself…”

I am EXTREMELY passive-aggressive and until I get fed up, I am usually having my kindness taken for weakness. I knew that it had something to do with some type of obstacles (I am a self-proclaimed junior dream interpreter myself lol), but I just wanted more clarity and specifics. Thank you so much for helping me put things into perspective!
