Detailed dream meaning
Dreaming of a public toilet indicates that issues in your life have run their course and it is time for a change in your life. The public aspect of the dream usually indicates that there is a connection to someone else that is being spoiled based on current feelings that are not true to the situation. For example, this can represent you not wanting to date someone because they remind you of your ex. This kind of dream is indicating that you need to let go and that the current situation is not what it seems.
If you are fearful of the public toilet, this can have many other interpretation aspects tied to it as it can be linked to a fear of germs, worry about public nudity, or simply feeling dirty. Examine your own fear in your dream to see what the current situation is and why you feel the way you do in the dream. Are you truly afraid of the public toilet or is it the other factors around the toilet causing a problem for you. This can often indicate that there is a complication in a social or work circle. If you are able to overcome your feelings in the dream and come to terms with the toilet and use it, this can be a good sign about being more reasonable with expectations of others in your life. This kind of dream usually means that you need to work with others to overcome your fears and worries. It can also be an indication that you need to seek forgiveness for a wrong doing in your own life
Public toilets can be symbols of practical life applications. Sometimes, when you have a full bladder while you sleep you will see a toilet in your dream can be a sign that you need to go. In this case there is likely no special meaning to the dream.
Going to the bathroom in public can indicate that there is a lot of negativity in your life. The public toilet or bathroom will indicate the need to let go of negativity, especially if you are fearful or shy about going in public. The human body has needs and sometimes alleviating your bowels has to be done in a public place. When you dream of others hearing you and you are embarrassed, this is a sign of holding yourself back or not being true to your own needs. You may find that you are putting other people’s needs before your own but that is not going to help you in the long run. It is okay to be there for others and to play a helping role in another’s life – but be sure that your own personal needs are being met and not being overshadowed by theirs.
This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life
- Social discord.
- Repressed emotions about friends.
- Dealing with fear.
- Putting other people’s needs over your own.
- Avoiding responsibility.
