challenges and difficulties
Amber Tamblyn takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Amber enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Amber Tamblyn also fears entrapment in close relationships.
Amber Tamblyn takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Tamblyn a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Amber Tamblyn and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Tamblyn will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
She is suspicious of groups, crowds, and social organizations. Tamblyn is quick to pick up on social charades and insincerity and avoids the limelight and glamour. Amber Tamblyn is direct and to the point in speech and manner, stubborn and inflexible, and often unwilling to communicate her innermost feelings and thoughts.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Amber Tamblyn 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 Amber Tamblyn needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Amber Tamblyn needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her 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 Amber's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Tamblyn's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Amber Tamblyn to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Amber Tamblyn is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Amber Tamblyn needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Amber Tamblyn needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Amber Tamblyn should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Amber Tamblyn back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help herself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Amber has a tendency to be a martyr.
Amber Tamblyn thinks of others before she thinks of herself and is always ready to lend a helping hand. She is deeply concerned with the community she lives in, loves her family and relatives and has a strong need to maintain close relationships with them.
