I try to run fast but I can't
Ever since I was a child, I have occasionally had this dream where I try to run fast, but can't seem to make my legs move very quickly. Sometimes I'm racing someone, or running away from someone, sometimes I'm not. The only consistent thing seems to be my inability to make my legs move fast enough. Each stride seems to take forever and takes a great deal of effort.

I think this shows a fear I have of not being good enough. All my life I have had the attitude that I am better than everyone else, that even if someone is better than me at something, I am better overall. I know it sounds like I'm self-centered or an egomaniac, but it's deeper than that. I would define it more as pride than anything else.

Anyway, that's what I think it means. Has anyone else ever had this dream?
