Even if you do not acknowledge these negative feelings or you are hiding your distaste in reality, her subconscious may be showing her this dream scenario as a form of catharsis or a release of her or your thinly veiled anger and contempt.

Symbolically, scissors represent two opposing views or points of conflict you could have recently become a part of.
