The symbolism can vary, but dreams of being shot generally depict feelings of being overwhelmed or suffocated by life. You are being overwhelmed by circumstances and bad influences in your life. In these dreams, you could feel unable to withstand all of this pressure. You are drowning in your problems, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Thus, dreams of being shot suggest that you feel like you’re living a dangerous or violent life and that you may be unable to escape it anyway. Or perhaps, you are too attached to something in your life that’s not good for you, like an addiction or a toxic relationship. The dream may tell you that it’s time to let go of this thing and find things that are truly good for you.
On the flip side, a dream about getting shot but not dying indicates that you have learned an important life lesson or you survived something to appreciate everything more.
This dream reveals your deep-seated fears and emotional wounds that you may be carrying inside. The bullets in your dream are symbolic of the emotional pain you have been running from your whole life. Surviving a bullet wound in your dream shows that you may be ready to heal those wounds and face your fears head-on.
