To dream of a paper bag represents something you don’t want to notice. Not wanting to care about results or the outcome of a choice you made. It may also reflect a wish for discretion.
Negatively, you may have asked for advice or help and are having a problem accepting what was given to you.
Example: A young woman dreamed of being handed a crumpled . In waking life she went to therapy for a problem she had and felt disappointed by the hard truth that the therapist gave her. The crumpled reflected how discretionary the therapist’s advice was and how straightforward it felt.
