Jealousy

(dreams)
Experiencing jealousy in your daily life may cause you to dream about it. If you are not aware of your jealousy, your unconscious may be giving you some hints of awareness. Jealousy is usually a result of insecurity. Consider this dream a learning experience. Analyze some of your feelings of insecurity or inadequacy and then begin to deal with those issues.
