An overflowing toilet is never something we are happy to see. It usually evokes great frustration and concerns within us. Likewise, dreaming of overflowing toilets isn’t exactly something we all want. Understandably, we might be confused and wonder what it means if we are dreaming about overflowing toilets.

5 Meanings When You Dream of an Overflowing Toilet
Our dreams have the ability to share valuable information from our subconscious with us, so it is beneficial to learn from them whether we enjoy them or not. An overflowing toilet symbolizes our emotions in our dreams, so it is best to take the good and the bad from your dreams.
1. You are not feeling heard
None of us enjoy feeling ignored. It can be very hurtful and frustrating if we are often overlooked or not heard. If you dream about an overflowing toilet, your subconscious mind is trying to tell you that you feel that people don’t listen to you.
If you have recently started in a new position where you are regarded as a junior, it is not unexpected that you’ll have these dreams. Likewise, if your loved ones tend to make decisions without regarding your feelings, you might find yourself dreaming about overflowing toilets.
The problem with not feeling heard is that it can fester in your emotions. The more you are ignored or your opinions are overlooked, the worse you’ll feel. Therefore, if the dreams continue, you need to consider doing something.
Here are a few ways you can help yourself be seen:
- Speak up when you feel that someone is dismissing your opinions
Even though most of us don’t enjoy any form of conflict, sometimes it is necessary if you feel that you are not getting the respect you deserve. Most people will try their best to change their ways after being addressed on the issue. If you feel that you are frequently overlooked in your family or group of friends, be brave and say something.
- Don’t bring yourself down
Often we tend to reflect inward when something goes wrong. This might make us feel that we are somehow deserving of being ignored or disrespected. However, the way people treat us has nothing to do with us, and so, we shouldn’t see any form of mistreatment as a reason to self-reflect. Instead, know that you are worthy of respect.
- Seek the help of a professional
Sometimes the feeling of being overlooked can be so exhausting and saddening that it can lead to depression. Selfcare should never be overlooked, and so if you feel that you are irrelevant to those around you and you don’t know how to handle it, reach out to a therapist. They have been professionally trained to guide us through difficult times. In addition, a therapist could cast light on the situation in ways you haven’t yet considered.
2. You have regrets
If you see yourself flushing an overflowing toilet in your dreams, it indicates regret within you. In this case, your regret is specifically about how you have treated others in the past. Now, we all have regrets, but unfortunately, none of us have the ability to change this that has happened.
All we can do is look ahead and try to be better people in the future. If you feel bad about how you treated a specific person, consider trying to make amends. No one likes to be reminded of the past, especially if it was unpleasant, but you’ll be surprised how far an apology can go.
It is unfortunate if you live in the past, so these dreams are your subconscious mind’s efforts to tell you to let go of the past by dealing with your regrets. Either make a change within yourself or try to fix things that have gone wrong. Either way, dealing with your regrets will make it possible for you to move forward.
Fortunately, once you have dealt with your regrets, the dreams should pass. However, if these dreams continue after you have decided to change your ways, be more patient with yourself. Remember that it takes time to change. Furthermore, don’t expect to be a perfect person. We all make mistakes whether we want to or not.
If you have regrets about things that happened that were in no way your fault, you need to deal with it, too. Although you can’t change what happened, you can change how it affects you in an emotional and psychological way. Speak to someone you trust about what happened or keep a journal. Giving your mind the opportunity to deal with what happened will give you peace of mind.
3. You have a hard time trusting others
A toilet that is overflowing with feces signifies difficulty with trust. It can be challenging to trust those around us, but if you try to always handle everything alone, it can be daunting, overwhelming, and lonely. If you struggle to hand the reins to others, you might feel anxious all the time because you are trying to control everything by yourself.
Regardless of whether it is in your personal or professional life, not being able to trust others to help with tasks is a trait that can be changed. You might feel that you are too perfectionistic, and so, you know others will disappoint you. Alternatively, you might feel frightened to allow others to get too close to you.
The term ‘control freak’ has a negative connotation because it implies that someone has to have full control over every single aspect of their life.It can be challenging for others to live with someone who can’t give over any control because they see their loved one stressed while feeling inadequate to help.
If you see yourself in the description above, the time has come to consider giving over some of the control. Let those who are in your life help you if they are willing. The same can be applied in the workplace. Start small and give yourself credit every step of the way. Before you know it, you will be able to allow others to help you in your life without sweating too much about it.
4. There is someone in your life who you don’t trust
If you dream about stepping in poop that falls from an overflowing toilet, your subconscious is warning you about someone in your life. In this case, there is someone that you shouldn’t trust. If these dreams continue, you should carefully think about the people in your life.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Is there someone in your life who is bringing you down?
- Is there someone in your life who is creating a lot of conflict?
- Do you feel comfortable around everyone in your immediate circle?
- Are you a victim of emotional abuse?
- Has someone managed to create a void between you and your loved ones?
If these questions show that there is someone you shouldn’t trust in your life, you need to be careful when you are interacting with the person. Your subconscious has warned you about the trustworthiness of this person, and so, listen to your emotions and be careful.
5. You need a new challenge
Dreams, where you see a toilet that is overflowing with trash, is an indication that you are not being stimulated enough. It could be that you are too busy at work or in your personal life, and so, you don’t make enough time to do the things that you enjoy. As a result, you feel that your life has become rather dull.
If these dreams continue, you should consider changing your habits to allow yourself the time to do things that you enjoy. In addition, you should take better care of yourself, because being uninspired in life is often linked to not being at your best health.
Try these tips if you are have started to feel that life has lost its appeal:
- Start a new hobby, craft, or sport
When we open ourselves to new experiences, we get exposed to new opportunities. You might meet new people or discover a new skill that you never knew existed.
- Make enough time to exercise daily
No matter how busy we are, we all need to exercise every day to be happy and healthy. By getting into the habit of having a brisk walk before dinner time, you will start to feel your lust for life returning.
- Stay close to those you love
Our people have the amazing ability to lift our spirits, and so, we should always make time to see them.
- Follow a healthy diet and limit bad habits
People who eat a well-balanced diet tend to have a happier outlook on life. In addition, people who don’t smoke or drink excessively, are more likely to be happy. Therefore, if you have lost your lust for life, cut back on these bad habits and start eating healthily. You’ll be surprised by the difference it can make in your life.
We all used toilets everyday, but we never like to think about them overflowing. In our dreams, we also don’t want to see overflowing toilets. However, our overflowing toilet-related dreams can give us great insight into our emotions.
By learning from these dreams, you give yourself the best chance to be healthy and happy.
