Example: Then I was in a place where we were having a staff party. Not very big but people were sitting at tables eating in a party mood. I sat with my child, maybe youngest son, no one else at the table. I felt I didn’t wish to get involved with the others, the feeling I often get at parties, just alone in a crowd. I left with my son. Some young men tried to dissuade us but I pushed away’ (Simeon T). Simeon finds groups of people difficult to relate to.
The dream shows this is a feeling which started in his childhood—his youngest son. Generally, our feelings about groups; social skill or lack of it; social pleasure.

A party is a gathering of celebration. All people in a dream are parts of your own consciousness, and all the people who are at a party can be considered thoughts in your psyche that are coalescing into an idea that it is time to celebrate something or break loose and have some fun. Sometimes a party has the purpose of acknowledging some sort of milestone, and if this is the case in your dream, it is a reminder to consider your accomplishments.Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox
