This dream is a kind of nightmare. If you had experienced stress during your day, you might see this kind of dream. This nightmare was probably triggered by your experiences during your waking day reality.
If the demands were being asked by an external body, like a superior or bully, then your dream says you’re being pressured and you face threat.
If the demands were made because of circumstances like the struggle for making a living, then you have to step up to the plate to deal with them.
