challenges and difficulties
Benson 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, Anna Benson 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 Anna.
She is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Anna Benson tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Benson withholds her thoughts and opinions until she has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Anna's silence discomforts others.
Her mental concentration is very good but her breadth of understanding may not be.
Anna Benson has a desire to break away from tradition and to free herself from restrictive conditions. Somewhat inflexible and rigid, she may suddenly become inhibited before she sets out on her goals, which could be to Benson's detriment.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Anna Benson 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 Anna Benson 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 Anna Benson 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.
Anna Benson 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. Benson also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Anna Benson 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 Benson's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
