challenges and difficulties
Morissette fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance herself or deny her needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that she will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Alanis Morissette may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Alanis.
Morissette is generally not a "joiner" and she does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Alanis Morissette does participate in a group, she may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or she may simply feel that she does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Alanis Morissette better than being with groups of her own peers.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Alanis Morissette will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Alanis feel a little out of step with others. Alanis Morissette takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Alanis feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Alanis Morissette has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Alanis Morissette has a desire to break away from tradition and to free herself from restricting conditions. Somewhat inflexible and rigid, she may suddenly become inhibited before she initiates her objectives, which could work out to Morissette's disadvantage.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Alanis Morissette instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Alanis Morissette needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Alanis Morissette to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Alanis Morissette needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Alanis directs her attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Morissette's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
The arena she is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Alanis Morissette should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials she feels she possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
Alanis Morissette has a very sympathetic and compassionate attitude toward others and shows her interest in their well-being. Her relationships are more on a personal basis and people are drawn to Morissette because of her sincerity and kindness.
