You are not alone when you dream about ants. This dream can be caused by the presence of ants in your house or apartment. Sometimes, however, ants in dreams can mean something more than what you think.
The Meaning of Ants in Dreams
Dreaming about ants means that you are overwhelmed by small things that make you feel incapable or inadequate. The sense of inferiority may cause a great deal of stress and anxiety for you. You may also feel like others are trying to take advantage of you and your time. You should find ways to alleviate the stress and anxiety you feel in order to have a more pleasant life and better health.
The symbolism behind an ant infestation is related to feeling overwhelmed by small things one feels incapable or inadequate. There is also a sense of inferiority because they are so small. The stress and anxiety one feels because they must deal with these annoying pests can be overwhelming as well as overwhelming when others try to take advantage of the time you spend trying to rid your home of them.
Another symbolism is that the value of your life is no greater than that of an ant. Or, it could mean that you are more insignificant when compared to something or someone else. This could be a result of feeling inferior, as ants often do. Ants, especially in nature, must work in a group to accomplish anything. The individual ant is insignificant but together they can do amazing things.
