challenges and difficulties
Dumas is wary of becoming emotionally dependent on 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, Amy Dumas 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 Amy.
She may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Amy Dumas does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Amy Dumas 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 Amy Dumas struggles with nebulous worries, insecurities and fears that may be difficult to pinpoint. Mostly, she may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of her mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Amy Dumas 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 Amy occasionally.
She is a bit skeptical, somewhat irritable, and others may find Amy Dumas quarrelsome or nagging. Her nervousness seems to stem from her tendency to over-work herself, and Dumas should try not to make more demands on others than they are able to handle.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Amy Dumas 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 Amy Dumas needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Amy Dumas to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Amy Dumas needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Amy 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 Dumas' 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. Amy Dumas should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials she feels she possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Amy Dumas back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of her desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
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 her life.
She is reserved and somewhat conservative in presenting her viewpoints to others and prefers a philosophical discussion to small talk. Amy Dumas is quite selective in her choice of subjects and only wants to study what is really of interest to her.
She is very obliging in her interaction with other people and can easily relate to them. Amy Dumas is likely to have many friends and acquaintances who share the same ideas and viewpoints as she does.
