A quick office poll revealed that others also have the “being late” dream. In mine, I usually KNOW I need to be somewhere, but for some reason, my dream self won’t move. Turns out that being late can mean a couple things in dreams. The first is that it may just mean you’re trying to do too much in your real life and now that stress is spilling over. It also could say something about your decision-making, whether just have trouble making decisions or you’ve made one in the past that you now feel badly about or you simply don’t want change. Basically all of those sound like me, so it’s no surprise these dreams are so common for me!
