challenges and difficulties
Armi Aavikko has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Aavikko is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Armi Aavikko takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
She is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Armi Aavikko tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Aavikko withholds her thoughts and opinions until she has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Armi's silence discomforts others.
Her mental concentration is very good but her breadth of understanding may not be.
She may feel inhibited in her relationships with others and give the impression of being unapproachable and wanting to keep her distance. Armi Aavikko thinks about her feelings for a long time before she expresses them to anyone and she tends to hide her inner self.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Armi Aavikko 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 Armi Aavikko needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively she is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Armi stands alone when she does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Armi Aavikko has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that she must be self-reliant and that only she can come up with the answers she needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate her from others, or make Armi Aavikko feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Armi Aavikko calls social "games" do not come naturally to her. Armi Aavikko needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in her relationships with others that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Armi Aavikko between acting spontaneously and being true to herself versus modifying herself or her behavior to suit others. Armi Aavikko seesaws between being inordinately concerned with her self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about her. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Aavikko's task.
The following are specific activities that will support Armi Aavikko in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Aavikko, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Armi Aavikko should develop faith and confidence both in herself and in a higher power that can guide, nourish, and help her.

Being generous with her time, energy and resources in helping others achieve a better life will in turn benefit Armi Aavikko.
