1. A measure of adaptability, ﬂexibility.
2. The ability to adapt to various situations and social activities.
3. To succumb to the demands of others, obligations (as in to “bend over backward”).
Dreams of bending can represent that you are testing the flexibility of your boundaries. This dream can also be showing you where you are being coerced, seduced, or are using your will in an attempt to influence others.
The bend of a bow represents the inhale before the exhale, the necessary withdrawal of energy in order to reemerge more powerful than before. See People Pleaser.
