What is the conclusion of dreaming of a dog bite that does not let go?

There are times when people are bullied as a result of their inability to fight back. The physically weaker the individual, the more likely he or she will be bullied. Children bully because of their physical weakness. Ten-year-olds are able to outsmart even the most determined eight-year-olds. However, a lot of this power difference disappears in adulthood with the rough stabilization of physical size and matching (with the exception that it relates to men and women). There are also increased penalties in adulthood for those who continue to use physical intimidation. The dog not letting go could represent these feelings while we dream, that we are unable to let go of feeling anxious around others. The “not letting go of the leg, foot, arm, hand etc” is associated with not letting go of something in life.
