A Sample Dream, Cockroach Dream Interpretation
Consider a dream where you are at a restaurant with your children. Even though the restaurant is clean and quiet, you occasionally hear odd scratching sounds. After the food arrives, you children begin to eat, but you become even more distracted by the sound emanating from the walls. Upon feeling something crawl over you foot, you look down to find a cockroach. Horrified, you watch as more of the insects begin crawling up the table and around your children Desperately, you look around the restaurant, only to find that the cockroaches are only at your table. You call for an attendant, who appears to be one of the teachers from school. The teacher looks at you, but ignores your pleas for help. Even though your children appear perfectly calm, you do what you can to get them out of the restaurant. Fortunately, once you get outside, the cockroaches are trapped within the restaurant.
This particular dream needs to be as much interpreted by who is not there as much as who is. If your spouse normally plays a role in taking care of your children, their absence indicates that you are concerned about the disbalance in who actually provides caregiving. In this instance, their absence may indicate that you feel you are doing more than your fair share. The cockroaches symbolize the fact that you may not feel like you are doing an adequate job. Under these circumstances, your silent pleas to the teacher indicate that you are wishing someone else, perhaps in your community, would take up some of the responsibilities you are trying to cope with. Fortunately, you are able to escape from the cockroaches, indicating that you will find an equitable solution to your problem.
