What does it mean when you dream about a remote?

Remote in the sense of a television remote may relate to control issues that suggest the dreamer’s “buttons are getting pushed” by a relationship that feels too controlling. If, in terms of the alternative meaning of the term “remote,” the dreamer feels distanced by the objects or people in their dream, perhaps they are mirroring the ways in which they distance themselves from people in their environment.
