Sinking، To dream of sinking represents feelings of slow loss, despair, or losing ground. You are feeling overwhelmed or unable to stop a negative situation from getting worse. A fear of unstoppable failure. Someone or something is dragging you down. You may be experiencing low self-esteem and confidence. Needing help that is either not available or that you are not being assertive enough about asking for. Feeling pressure to make a decision or change before total embarrassment occurs. A situation that is deteriorating. Feelings about your worst fears becoming a reality. Feelings about being unable to help others. Feeling that you can’t stop your life from getting worse.
Positively, a dream about sinking may reflect an unpleasant stage of your life that is coming to an end. Problems or bad people that seem to be slowly going away on their own. Experiencing your enemies succumbing to humiliation.
