The boy said: you are unbelievers, you are a liar.

The boy said: you are unbelievers, you are a liar.

In my dream, I closed my eyes with a cloth. In fact, I use this cloth when I want to sleep. At night, because of the fear of darkness, and the day because of the annoying sunlight.
In the dream, with my short hair and my favorite t-shirt I was walking on the main street of the city. I do not have this t-shirt in reality. But the t-shirt roles are in punk rock style.
A boy, who is a child of one of our family friends, tried to pull off the fabric from my eyes. He said: why do you take your eyes?
I was glad to see him and said: Because the sunlight is annoying to my eyes.
In fact, the last time I saw this boy, he was about seven years old. And I have not seen him for more than six years.
In the dream, he asked me: You are an unbeliever, right?
I often do not talk about my beliefs with others. But in this dream, it was clear for some reason that I am an unbeliever.
With a smile, I shook my head for approval.
"So please do not talk to me tomorrow," he said. Because you are unbelievers, you are easily lying.

    Hi Zahra! If this were my dream I would imagine the boy may represent an aspect of myself, perhaps my inner child: trust, innocence, immaturity and/or my sense of wonder. I would note the connection between the boy "trying to pull off the fabric from my eyes," and the expression, "pull the wool over my eyes," meaning to deceive someone; and I would think the boy may be trying to help me see the truth of some situation or to illuminate some fact (sunlight/consciousness) for me. I would ask myself, "How do I feel rebellious (punk rock) towards the 'beliefs' forced (pulling fabric from eyes to force me to believe) upon within my culture or society, and my dream is showing me there are times when its best to keep my beliefs, or lack thereof, to myself?"
