challenges and difficulties
Ali has difficulty asserting her will and desires directly and openly. She may also suppress her anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in herself are important tasks for MacGraw.
She may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Ali MacGraw does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Ali MacGraw must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
At times Ali MacGraw struggles with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, she may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of her mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Ali MacGraw has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if her religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting herself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Ali occasionally.
Ali MacGraw 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 MacGraw's disadvantage.
She is inclined to be quite reserved and cautious in her relationships with others. But Ali may also have an exaggerated regard for other peoples views and could give them more credence than they are worth.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ali MacGraw 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 Ali MacGraw needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
She is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on her path, but when under stress Ali MacGraw becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what she has, she is apt to ignore the subtle signals she receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Ali MacGraw needs to learn the limits of her ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for her. MacGraw also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Ali MacGraw tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is in her work and her relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into MacGraw's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
