You are at an important transitional stage in your life. Most of your life you have lived by someone else rules or under the control of external sources, like religion or relationship or job, parents, school, etc. This dream is showing you that you can allow it to continue and it will permanently change and scar you, or you can use your wisdom and free will to make some new hard choices and change the course of your life. You need to make changes to find happiness.
