Don’t make things worse as you try to improve them
A dream in which you see yourself kill someone in self-defense means you are at risk of making things worse in an attempt to correct them.

You need to measure your reaction to those that hate you
A dream in which you kill someone in self-defense means you need to be careful how you react to those that you might consider your enemies.
If you react without tact, you might end up looking like the bad one. In most cases, avoiding your enemies might be the best thing to do. Try ignoring and avoiding them if you can instead of fighting them.
You need to stop overreacting
Seeing yourself kill someone in the dream could mean you have to stop overreacting. Stop making mountains out of molehills and do not waste your time and energy on every little thing. Overreacting to everything could also push friends and family away. You do not want to be known as the one with a short fuse.
You need to accept your wrongs and not be defensive
A dream in which you see yourself kill someone in self-defense means you need to accept your wrongs and not be over-defensive. This dream means something is coming in which you might end up hurting people in a bid to defend yourself instead of just accepting your wrongs.
You are misunderstanding the intentions of those around you
A dream in which you see yourself kill someone in self-defense means there could be someone to whom you are responding harshly just because you do not understand their intentions. You need to stop seeing everything through the lens of negativity or you will lose all those that matter to you.
There is something you are overdoing
Killing someone in self-defense in a dream means there could be something that you are overdoing. You indeed might be doing the right thing but overdoing it simply makes it wrong.
For example, in a bid to get ahead in life, you might be working too hard. Although hard work is great, overdoing it to the point that it takes all the time from family and friends can never be a good thing.
