What does it mean when you dream about a fight?

Because life itself is so full of conflicts, dream fights can refer to any number of different struggles in our everyday life. Also, the culture in which we are raised can place so many conflicting demands upon us that we are filled with inner tensions, and these various inner conflicts can all be symbolized in dreams as physical fights. As with all dream symbols, the tone and setting of the dream indicate which meaning is applicable.
