If we can identify what is making us feel hostile in a dream, then we can usually draw a parallel in our waking lives and deal with whatever the problem is.

If the feeling is appropriate in a particular situation, and we can justify it, then we can handle it in a conscious state without confrontation.

If, however, someone is being hostile towards us, it very often means that we need to be aware that we are not acting appropriately, that others may feel we are putting them in danger.
