Dream of eating sour sweets
This dream may mean that you will be experiencing some sort of betrayal in your life or maybe you already have. Maybe there is someone or something that you trusted and didn’t quite turn out the way you expected them to be.
This dream is telling you to always listen to your intuition when it is trying to tell you something, and be sensitive to the things that you are feeling and the energy that you get when you are with other people.
