What Does It Mean When You Dream About Going Bald?
Going bald is a shocking realization for most people.
The reason for this is simple: we consider our hair a part of our being and the fact that we are losing it is perceived as the loss of a part of ourselves, and that is not an easy fact to accept.
Our hair is a part of our self-image and most people consider their hair to be one of the most important accessories for their good looks.
This is in fact true to some extent because beautiful hair is usually related to a person’s overall attractiveness.
Hair in a dream symbolizes our thoughts and ideas. A dream in which it was falling from our head or someone else’s can have different meanings in relation to our thoughts and ideas.
This dream is often related to our sense of self-esteem and general confidence. A dream about going bald often reveals the insecurity and vulnerability of the person in some daily situations.
This dream often points to some areas of your life where the person having such a dream feels helpless and insecure.
Going bald is something that men actually experience more than women, but both women can experience baldness for different reasons and be faced with the feeling of disbelief and despair upon realizing this fact.
Nowadays, there are many methods to overcome the problem of people who have trouble accepting baldness.
For people who don’t consider it that important, they can accept their baldness as a fashion statement or a statement of confidence and something to be proud of.
