Re: sitting on lawn and staring

Here is my amplification of the images and actions so you can examine them. My sense from these are you have developed attitudes from childhood that have created personal traits in your adult life. These unconscious energies prevent you from having confidence in yourself in certain environments, in particular when in interactions with people or a crowd of people. The dream also seems to be pointing to a lack of proper emotional nourishment from family/parents. 'They were watching tv' instead of giving needed attention to your emotional needs. Also possible substituting of the lacking nourishment with 'feel good' actions on your part.

As for the other meaning/applications {all dreams have at least two}, there were probably recent experiences related to these traits. The staring of the neighbors may point to a recent situation that was 'staring' you in the eye, a situation you may have felt a lack of confidence in being in. Self confidence may be the central theme of the dream, if not overall then in certain situations/environments.

Read the following and what i have provided and see where it may fit. I do believe the dream is strongly pointing to personal traits/attitudes which probably have to do with your childhood upbringing.
