It could also be a sign that you are trying to survive something with just the basics. You have had to cut back but you are managing- just.

Bread can be symbolic of an honest living. You are a hard worker, you earn every penny you are paid and take great pride in being conscientious.

Stale bread can indicate that some area of your life has lost its freshness or pleasantness. It could be a relationship with a partner, a work colleague, a friend or family member. Perhaps you need to work had to stop this part of your life stagnating.

If you were eating fresh, warm and sweet smelling bread, you might encounter people who are down to earth and their positivity will spread to everyone who meets them- including you. You may have already met someone like this and they have changed your life or your outlook. Perhaps you are this person and people are drawn to you for the same reasons.
