Example: With Nan living in a monastery. Grounds and grounds were beautiful. I was feeling insecure within the relationship but could not know why. As I was walking through the grounds and I looked through a magazine and saw pictures of me, one holding a pot of jam. The article was about male chauvinism, and the jam represented my selfishness. I was so angry about it and where did they get the photos?
Here the jam is seen as selfishness, probably because he is pictured as holding it and maybe not sharing it.
Jam on my brakes: This can indicate a personal emergency that you need to be aware of. It might show a health problem, or saying you need to be careful in driving your car or yourself.

Some possibilities are feelings of frustration about not reaching your goals; a life situation in which you are caught up in a public or communal activity or event and find it difficult to escape and go your own way and your own pace.
