To dream of being insulted may represent emotional sensitivity to being criticized. Feelings of surprise that you are not as good at something as you thought you were. Feeling used or under-appreciated. Hurt feelings or wounded pride.
Negatively, dreaming of being insulted may be a sign that you are having trouble accepting the truth of a matter. Being uncomfortable hearing the truth or fearing other people telling you the truth. Over-sensitivity. Feeling that someone has challenged your dominance or authority. Embarrassed or hurt that someone has not stood up for you. Feeling that you are not good enough.
Often times dreaming of insults mirrors waking life situations where you or someone else has been offended by comments made.
Example: A man dreamed of being and then killing the person with a sword. In waking life he had overreacted to someone who had criticized him.
