To dream that you are against some sort of enemy can simply represent a part of yourself that you are uncomfortable with. There is likely some self-confidence issue inside of you that you are having trouble dealing with. If you have a problem with part of your personality, it is best to fix it rather than feel bad about it. Making small steps to become a better person can help to get rid of the enemy within yourself.
