You're moving ahead in life, or at least you're trying to. You don't need any added obstacles in your road of life, but your friend's influence may end up being like a brick wall that you'll run into again and again as you try to make personal progress. Their brand of independence is at odds with the direction you're supposed to go in life, and you'll find yourself clashing with their basic energy as you try to make things happen for yourself.
Depending on other factors in your connection, this could lead to some serious arguments, anger and hurt feelings, or it could simply be a recurrent frustration that gets in the way of your good feelings for each other. It could be difficult to establish a feeling of trust and harmony when your goals are so at odds.
