Dream Meaning of Chasing someone

Chasing someone you know or you don’t know in a dream may be a sign of needing to protect that person from themselves. Many times people come across on paths that seem unfeasible or even self-destructive. The impulse is to chase them down and try to redirect them into true ways. You may not directly know whom you are chasing, but you know their relationship to someone else you love and value-be it their boss, a criminal who has victimized them, or some other antagonist. From another perspective if you chased someone in your dream, it is a measure type of something that you are unable to cope with our fears and have trouble facing reality.  Once ignored, these thoughts and images manifest over time in our unconscious mind, and then are released during sleep in the form as a chase dream.  These fears include stress, anxiety and phobias that we have overlooked and now it rearing it’s head.
