To dream of waiting represents waking life situations where you are anticipating something to happen. Anticipating others to react in a certain way, health problems to change, or an outcome to occur. Counting on a person or outcome to help you. Feeling that a situation is almost finished.
Negatively, waiting may reflect situations where you are being too patient with a difficult person or problem. Feelings about imminent failure being close at hand. Allowing jerks to take their time during a sensitive or important moment. Alternatively, waiting may reflect a pessimistic or losing mindset. Assuming that bad things or losing is inevitable so you wait for it without trying anything else. Waiting for bad things to happen. A feared deadline. Awkward pauses in your life. Feeling embarrassed that something you want isn't happening yet.
To dream of waiting for your mother to come for you may reflect feelings about expectations for situations you think are inevitable. Feeling that bad luck, consequences, or something you feel is very likely is close to occurring. Negatively, it may reflect too much preoccupation with anticipating bad luck or death.
To dream of being in a waiting room represents issues where you are showing a lot of patience. You may be very focused on something you are expecting to happen in waking life. Negatively, it may reflect growing impatience or that you're too willing to allow someone to take their time. Growing anxiety about confirming whether or not something in your life has failed. Tension, uncertainty, or fear about poor results. It may also reflect situations where you too concerned with waiting for an outcome to resolve instead of looking for a better solution.
Positively, a waiting room you may be remaining calm in a crisis or stressful situation.
