Each position can have something different to say about you depending on which you are playing. For example if you are playing offense and are the main person with the ball, you feel as though you are the star. You want all of the attention and you are going to do everything in your power to get it because you think that you deserve it.
Things are a little bit different if you are playing offense but don’t have the ball. This means that even though you feel like you are a largely functioning and contributing member of society, you have some doubts about your role overall. You feel like what you are doing right now is not as fulfilling as it should be, and are probably right around middle age, or right out of college, the two times in life that you begin to question your role in society most. The best advice here is just to roll with the punches and take everything one step at a time. Answers will be given to some of your toughest questions soon enough.
If you have a dream that you are playing defense then you feel as if you have the put up a shield around most people. You do not trust people with your secrets and let them know that at every possible interval. You could gain a lot out of trying to trust someone with something important once in your life but it is hard to say whether you will have the ability to do that right now, since now is when these dreams seem to be the most relevant. If you want to truly see change in your life then the best thing to do is to tell people some of your secrets and don’t put up so many defenses. Let people in a little bit more and allow yourself to care about others and to be cared for yourself. This way you will realize just how important trust really is.
If you are dreaming that you are watching a basketball game, then this probably means that you are in the middle of some kind of back and forth argument in your life. Or you feel like you are constantly being pulled in two different directions over and over again. Consider the way that the ball goes from one side of the court to another over and over again without having a point actually be made for a good deal of that time. This says that basketball can be a seriously difficult sport to play and to watch. But as a symbol for your life it suggests that you are going between two options or perhaps in the middle of a two sided discussion, but you are not making and headway no matter what. You are unable to get where you want to be because you’re caught in between two options. Don’t let yourself stay stuck for too long.
