DREAM DICTIONARY - Cockroach :With dream symbols try to think of the emotions and situations that you would link to that symbol. What would you associate with cockroaches or with infestations? We occasionally use the word cockroach as a way of describing a man who has a tarnished reputation or who acts in an uncaring way. A man who has cheated on his girlfriend maybe described as a cockroach. Your mind uses the cockroach in a similar way and so the appearance of a cockraoch maybe your minds way of saying "he is a low life"
We also associate cockroaches with poverty. Seeing a cockroach in a dream maybe your minds way of saying "My grandmothers house was dirty. She is not coping" or "I was ashamed at how untidy my home was yesterday".
Think of poverty in a more spiritual sense. You may have a low quality of life spiritually. This may have been thinking about the rut you are in or the lack of inspiration in your life. You may simply be depressed - your mind is infested!
Cockroaches could also be your mind way of saying "this problem will simply not go away!" Try to think of ways in which your life is infested with a problem.
KEY WORDS :unmotivated, untidy, "lowlife", uncaring, in a rut, cheating, not coping, dirty, poor, low quality of life, sinister, tarnished reputation, a continuous problem
