You have valuable social contacts that you are passing up on in order to fulfill your desires but in the end it will not lead you to good places or to success because it turns out that sometimes you need to be able to have friends to help you along the way when you get tired in a literal sense or in a more figurative emotional sense.
To dream that you are in a canoe and you are paddling fine without the help of others means that you have accomplished quite a bit in your life. You are able to get on without the help of your friends and you are quite self-sufficient. While it is a good thing to be able to rely on nobody but yourself, it is overall not that great to have to go the rest of your life without friends there by your side. Even if you can make it without the help of others, it might be nice to try to get some help from friends in the future, just for the company.
If you dream that you are in a canoe with friends and are making it across the water just fine, it means that you have a healthy relationship with your friends and are making great progress in your social life and in a lot of other aspects of your life. There are many different things that may threaten to hold you back in life, but thanks to your friends you are able to continue on as if nothing is wrong and you will make it out just fine thanks to that.
If you have a dream in which your canoe breaks, this generally means that your relationship with your friends will break down soon too. If you can remember who the friend was that was riding in the canoe with you, then this is the friend that you are going to experience turmoil in your relationship with. A dream like this should act as a warning not to get too angry at your friend in the times soon to come, because it could prove to be the stress put on them which will eventually cause your relationship to break under all of the emotional stress that they are experiencing.
Finally, if you dream that your canoe is going too slowly, it probably means that something is hindering your relationship with your friends. You are not about to break down just yet, and you are not about to lose any friends entirely, but you will need to watch what you say and watch how you act because the next few moments in your relationship will be crucial in determining how things progress from where you are now.
A canoe is really phenomenal at being able to get you from one place to another, but someone might agree that it is not the best method. There are plenty of other ways to get across a river and many of them require little to no work at all. If you have a dream about a canoe consistently then you might want to think about your path in life and consider whether there is a smarter or easier route to take. There’s something to be said for anyone that’s willing to take the hard way out, but not when it’s totally unnecessary.
