I seek an interpretation for a strange dream I saw today.
I see myself abroad, in the apartment home that I lived as a child. (I was living abroad in my childhood from ages 1-10, and I returned to work in that same country from my mid 20's till this year. I however plan to return there to start my business again). But the dream is set in the present day. The apartment is unoccupied, except for 4 people - myself, a friend of mine (male) who worked with me in my previous company abroad, another unknown male, and a woman - a woman whom I consider the worst person I have met so far in my life (an ex-colleague of foreign ethnicity/descent).
I find myself in the apartment sharing my room with my friend and the unknown male, while this woman is in the other room. It looks like we all live together in the same apartment. It's early morning and the unknown male wakes up to go to work.
My friend wakes up next and we all discuss to share the breakfast at restaurant across the street. But the unknown male is getting late and he heads off to work. I get dressed up (in a business suit) and hear this woman in the other room getting ready, and preparing her breakfast (sounds of eggs frying).
I go down to the street, all dressed up, when I look at my watch - it shows 10.30 am, and I am feeling hungry. Strangely, I am carrying a backpack (on my business suit! I don't know what it contains, but it's light). I call my friend from my cell, and he says to return to the apartment. I put on my sunglasses as I head back up the building towards my apartment using the stairs.
And I find this woman in front of me. She's on top of the stairway (at a turn) and I am at the bottom. She chuckles when she sees me. It's kinda dim, and the light is not too bright. I put my head down while I am ascending the stairs to ignore/avoid looking at her, but I feel someone tugging gently at my backpack on my shoulders upwards so that I would ascend the stairs faster ( it's her at the top of the staircase who's tugging me upwards.)
But I don't look at her while I pass by her side at the top of the staircase, and her giggling/chuckling stops, she becomes quiet, and tries to make eye contact with me, as if wanting to speak to me, but I turn my face away from her. I see she's still standing at the same place at the staircase, looking probably hurt at me ignoring her, but I am continuing to ascend the stairway.
Finally I reach my apartment, and I slam the door tightly and loudly because I don't want her to open/come in/return. I am hungry, so I go to the bedroom and I find leftovers in two packets for me (one from the unknown male, and one from my friend) , it looks like they ate a little and packed the rest for me to eat. I overhear my friend taking a shower, and his cell is ringing. I call out his name, and he responds he will come out in a bit.
At this point I woke up.
The setting of this dream is abroad, in a country where I met my friend, and this woman in reality. I returned in the middle of this year to my native country, but I don't know whether I would return back there abroad (though I wish to). The worst part is seeing this woman in the dream. In real life, she's been the worst woman I have ever met in my life so far, the cause of innumerable woes/suffering to me. Could anyone decipher/interpret this dream?
