Kind of sounds like, subconsciously, you're worried about something. Some kind of responsibility in your life that's weighing heavily on you, and you might not even realize it's bothering you. Or there's some kind of goal you want to achieve but the process of getting their is daunting and scary to you.

Brains are weird, so they come up with wild shit in our dreams. They say you dream about events from the previous day, but that's bull because most of what I dream has nothing to do with the day I had.
