There may be areas of your waking life in which you feel insecure or unsure of yourself. You may be aware of some of these areas but in other cases you may be repressing your anxiety. Repressing any emotion is damaging and to grow stronger emotionally you should try to recognize and understand it. Dreams can help you with this process. Dreams in which you missed a bus or plane or miss an appointment may be reflecting your fear of being late. They may also be suggesting feelings of uncertainty in your waking life.
If someone makes you late, that person may be part of the reason for your insecurity.
If you are angry with yourself in your dream, you may be angry with yourself about missing opportunities in waking life.
Any dream in which your safety is threatened by natural disasters, such as floods, storms or earthquakes, may be a sign of feelings of insecurity in waking life.

Dreams in which you are abroad and unable to understand the language or culture are classic symbols of uncertainty about new situations in your waking life, as are dreams in which you are constantly outbid in an auction. Try to identify what you were bidding for as it might help you understand what is worrying or bothering you.
