Alain Jean Assailly
challenges and difficulties
Alain has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Assailly.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Alain Assailly does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Alain Assailly must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Alain Assailly becomes tense and upset rather easily. He becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In his eagerness to see his inspirations materialize, Assailly is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving his goals. His occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Alain Assailly strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
Alain Assailly has a serious outlook on life and a tendency to dwell on his own flaws as well as those of everyone else. Assailly could be rather reserved with people and may find it difficult to express himself, giving a more negative impression than he intended.
Very cautious and reserved, Alain Assailly could find it difficult to express himself. He is a bit inhibited around others and does not seem to get much cooperation from them, causing Alain to be disappointed.
He is somewhat pessimistic and prone to states of depression. Alain Assailly may feel like withdrawing from everything and that he is not adequately equipped to handle his life. He may need someone else's point of view to balance his overly pessimistic outlook.
Alain Assailly tends to be somewhat insecure and uncertain about his direction of life. Frequently plagued by doubt and fear, he is inclined to worry a lot. Because Assailly lacks the confidence to fight back, he may allow himself to become the victim of other people.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Alain Assailly instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Alain Assailly needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Alain Assailly needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Alain's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Assailly's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Alain Assailly to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Alain Assailly is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Alain Assailly needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Alain Assailly between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Alain Assailly seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Assailly's task.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Alain Assailly back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in his life.
Alain Assailly tends to pick his friends and associates very carefully and is always on the look-out for responsible and congenial people. This enables Alain Assailly to feel secure with his colleagues and he enjoys good relationships with them.
