I'm usually good at analyzing my own dreams, but I just can't figure this one out. I think it might have something to do with my temper. I don't usually get mad, but when I do, it takes a lot to hold me back.

Whenever I dream about being angry, I usually am mad at someone I know and don't care for in real life. I always end up trying to punch them, and when I do my fist goes in slow motion and feels really heavy. It barely ends up making contact. I feel embarrassed in the dream because I can't seem to hit hard.

The other person doesn't fight back, but just gives me an odd look, and then I end up walking away in shame. I'm just wondering why I can't throw a good punch in my dreams.
