It is an oneiric dream image, very recurrent that generates anguish and fear which sometimes is so real that it’s confused with reality. Dreaming of falling expresses the dreamer’s anxieties and fears about something that in his lifestyle occupies a decent place, but that he fears losing: it should be the social position or a goal achieved after seeing you later.
In this case, the “extrinsic” dream is that the fear - which is perhaps held in restraint within the morning - of a failure, a disappointment, an unexpected novelty that one fears not having the ability to handle properly.
But falling into dreams may have another meaning: the high opinion you have got of yourself, not associated with real abilities or possibilities.
Or, on the contrary, symbolize the shortage of confidence in oneself, the insecurity linked to the new situations that have to be faced, the sensation of guilt or shame for something that has been committed which is taken into account dishonorable and doesn’t fit the common ethics.

These metaphors are too high ideals, man’s aspirations to need more, to not enjoy what he already has, and so inevitably settle and have a “confrontation” together with his ego, too overwhelming given his arrogance.
