Everyone knows that bears attack when they feel threatened. When we feel threatened some of us yell and attack, others hide away and deal with it by themselves. When a bear is attacking you in your dream it means you might be an aggressive person and seem more dominant compared to other people. Most people are afraid of you and you get angry easily.
Bears are very independent animals and can do amazing on their own. In the dream, if you are trying to run away from the bear attack it can mean you need to face your problems and stop running away. If you are fighting the bear it may mean you are trying to reduce the risks you have in your waking life. Overall, bears may seem cute and cuddly but they have a deeper emotional meaning to your waking life if you find them within your dreams.
