Detailed dream meaning

When you have any dream concerning food or feeding then this is a sign of taking care of yourself on a multitude of levels. A waiter or a waitress specifically can be a sign of how you need help in your own life or the help that you are getting and whether or not it is good, (positive) or bad (negative). The people around you often have a huge influence on the day to day function in your life and usually, a waitress is going to be representative of those people in your life that are there to be of assistance.

When you have a difficult waiter, a waitress that doesn’t want to do her job, or a waiter or waitress that require you to be on them to do their job, this does not make your eating experience a good one. Consider people around you that may be using you, taking advantage of you or more trouble than they are worth in your life. When you dream about being a waiter or a waitress, these dreams are representative of how you treat others or how you meet their needs. If you have a dream where you are serving people and it is demanding and hectic then you want to consider how it is in your waking world and what people are demanding from you. Do you feel like you are being taken advantage of or if people are taking you seriously? Consider ways in which you are not speaking your mind or allowing people to walk all over you. These kinds of dreams can indicate your own shortcomings in that maybe you need to express yourself more clearly.

It can also show your own feelings of how you feel underappreciated or taken advantage of. When you enjoy serving others in your dream or receive a compliment about your skills, this is representative of taking pride in your work. Receiving a tip or compliment for waiting on someone also is a sign of getting rewarded in your waking world and can represent receiving money or prestige for doing a job well done. When you have a dream where there is a waiter or waitress that seems out of place this is a sign to ask for help in your waking world.
