The state of brokenness can be used to symbolize everything from poverty (“broke”) to forcible entry (a “break-in”) to fundamental damage (“broken down”) to emotional abandonment (as in having one’s heart “broken”). Breaking may also have positive connotations, as when one breaks open the seal on a letter or the packaging of a gift or a new purchase. Any one of these connotations might be indicated, and thus brokenness must be interpreted in the larger context of the dream.... Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia
You are dreaming of a loss to the foundational integrity of some aspect of your life. Bones as foundational elements indicate that the essence of the stressor that is being expressed has to do with how something is structured or being supported.
If you dream of a bone being broken, it tells you that some area of your life is on shaky ground.
The solidity or strength beneath that which is creative or expressive is what is compromised.
If your dream included the injury itself, add the means by which your bones were broken to your interpretation, including if there was another person responsible.
The more creative you are with your rumination of these symbolic meanings, the more successful your interpretation will be.

Dreams of walking on broken glass, seeing or being surrounded by shards of glass or, even worse (and far from everyday), having to eat broken glass may represent cutting words or wounding experiences. The vivid image in the dream is designed to draw your attention to a pain that you may have been denying in waking life. It can also refer to something clear and pure that has been broken, suggesting the shattering of expectations. Typically, such dreams are linked to personal, rather than career, conflicts.
If you have such a dream, has something in your waking life changed dramatically and has that change caused you pain? If you are eating the glass, this suggests that you are taking in the painful experience, but it may be asked whether you are trying to swallow rather than acknowledge your pain.
If you are walking on glass, consider how your direction in life is causing you pain.... The Element Encyclopedia

Example: ‘I am at a wedding at which we are being served a celebratory chicken lunch. Whilst my back is turned for a moment one of the other guests on the table (who is female but whom I do not know) removed my plate and substitutes it with a plate of food which doesn’t contain chicken. When I challenge this, I am told that there is no more. At this I rather petulantly decide to leave the wedding’ (Brian Y).

If you have a great capacity to give to others, probably in one of your dreams you have seen a plate. Not surprisingly, this element says that you are willing to serve your fellows.
