challenges and difficulties
Anita Ekberg has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Anita is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack the capacity for joy and play. Anita Ekberg often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Ekberg's that may inhibit her a great deal. Anita Ekberg must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob her of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Her fears revolve around money and material security, and Anita Ekberg works very hard to ensure that her assets are solid. She may be very conservative, even stingy with her money because she is afraid there will not be enough. She may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by a great deal of caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Anita Ekberg has for her life are firmly held in check by her sense of reality. At times she may wish for more freedom, but Anita also fears it and holds back. Anita Ekberg may blame practical limitations, some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
Anita Ekberg becomes tense and upset rather easily. She becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In her eagerness to see her inspirations materialize, Ekberg is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving her goals. Her occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Anita Ekberg 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 Anita Ekberg needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Anita Ekberg - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Ekberg tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Anita Ekberg is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Ekberg's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Anita Ekberg needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Anita Ekberg is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Ekberg's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Anita Ekberg 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.
Anita Ekberg tends to pick her friends and associates very carefully and is always on the lookout for responsible and congenial people. This enables Anita Ekberg to feel secure with her colleagues and enjoy good relationships with them.
