A dilemma is not just any problem though, but a problem which requires you to make a hard choice between two different things or possibly even more. This is what makes a dilemma so difficult, but the cherry on top is the fact that there are positives and negatives to both sides and the negatives are usually more prominent than the positives for any given choice.
If you have a dream in which you are caught in a dilemma then this interpretation is fairly straightforward. You usually only have a dream where you are caught in a dilemma if there is some kind of dilemma that you are dealing with in real life. You feel like there is something holding you back or you feel like you are in some kind of argument with someone you like even though you know you shouldn't be. Your dilemma might not even have to do with anyone else though; it is also possible that you are just caught between a rock and a hard pace for some other reason. You really need to get something off your chest but you just can't seem to let it go.
A dilemma is something that usually comes up in your life unexpectedly too and the worst thing about it is that you usually have to make snap decisions which makes life so much harder for you. All of this difficulty and complication can be prevented if you try to cover up for your mistakes and issues before they become true problems but most people do not have this luxury. A dream like this could be a warning that you need to get your affairs in order or prepare for an event such as this.
