Recently I have had an increased amount of nightmares. Most commonly I am trying to run away from something but my feet do not move fast enough and it feels as if I am moving through water or my feet are so heavy I can only shuffle them along the ground. This has been my recurring theme for many years. I did some research, and I found that this could mean that I ”lack self-confidence or self-esteem.” It also can be linked to feelings of helplessness or feeling run down.

"There may be a connection to negative feelings in relation to a certain situation or goal.  It can also allude to you desiring to accomplish something but not having the perseverance to start or follow through on something."

This is a low blow. And completely accurate.
