challenges and difficulties
Angela Mao has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Mao knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Angela Mao may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Angela must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
She is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with her duty, her public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Angela Mao understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and she is capable of much self-discipline and patience once she sets her sights on a goal.
But Angela Mao is very judgmental and hard on herself if she fails to attain success, and she can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize her efforts.
Angela Mao has a serious outlook on life and a tendency to dwell on her own flaws as well as those of everyone else. Mao may be rather reserved with people and may find it difficult to express herself, thereby leaving a more negative impression than she intended.
She may frequently feel hindered or oppressed by other people and may suddenly join forces with others in order to overcome difficulties. Angela Mao seems to be afraid of her own courage and may find it hard to express her desires.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Angela Mao 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 Angela Mao needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Mao's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Angela Mao has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in trying to strike a balance between Mao's inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Angela Mao needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Angela Mao back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being excessively egocentric or proud, needing personal recognition and applause, wanting to be center stage all the time, needing to be important and special.
Angela has the inclination to gossip and spread stories or she could be the subject of gossip herself at times. Her perception of partnership and family relationships tends to be somewhat unrealistic, and Angela Mao may put up a good front and pretend to have a harmonious life.
Some of her relationships tend to be a bit peculiar and Angela should beware of becoming involved with bad company. Angela Mao could be easily lured by others to take part in dubious or underhanded schemes.
