To dream that you commit suicide represents your desperate desire to escape from your waking life. You may be harboring feelings of guilt that you cannot get over and thus turning the aggression on yourself. You need to start approaching problems from a different angle. Alternatively, the dream suggests that you are saying good-bye to one aspect of yourself and hello to a whole new you. It is symbolic of a personal transformation or a new stage in your life.

To commit suicide in a dream, foretells that misfortune will hang heavily over you.

To see someone commit suicide in you dream highlights your concerns for that person. Consider what characteristics and qualities in that person you may be trying to “kill” and annihilate in your own self. Perhaps you hope that you are not like this person and are making attempts to get rid of those traits within your own self.

For a young woman to dream that her lover commits suicide, her disappointment by the faithlessness of her lover is accentuated.

Since its existence, suicide is a symbol of the destruction of the world. As widely popular Sartre’s doctrine preaches it, the value of reality is exclusively the scope of existence. However, in some cultures, like Japanese, suicide for ethical reasons is considered an honorable action.

Dreaming of suicide could symbolize an aggression against your person which you punish for some motive or need to remove an aspect of your character with that which you do not like.
It also indicates, in some form, that you resist accepting the problems that are affecting you or living in a way against your desires.
You should interpret this dream as a severe warning: you are not upholding your commitments and you try to avoid reality.

Lastly, the act of destroying an object with which you identify could be a sign of the latent desire to suicide.
Oneiric oracles say that this dream foretells deception.

This dream is a signal that you need a change of scene or more mental relaxation. Try sharing your troubles with a trusted friend or adviser, but in any event stop brooding.
