challenges and difficulties
Ashley Massaro 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 Massaro knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Ashley Massaro may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Ashley 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.
Ashley Massaro has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Ashley limits herself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in herself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Ashley Massaro difficult to get to know intimately, as Massaro tends to distance herself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Ashley Massaro tends to be somewhat insecure and uncertain about her direction in life. Frequently plagued by doubt and fear, she is inclined to worry a lot. Because Massaro lacks the confidence to fight back, she may allow herself to become the victim of others.
She is inclined to be rather serious and withdrawn. As she feels very uncomfortable in the presence of others, Ashley Massaro shies away from social contacts and prefers to be by herself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ashley Massaro 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 Ashley Massaro needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Ashley Massaro copes with stress. Ashley Massaro also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Ashley Massaro to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
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 Ashley Massaro between acting spontaneously and being true to herself versus modifying herself or her behavior to suit others. Ashley Massaro 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 Massaro's task.
The following are specific activities that will support Ashley Massaro in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Massaro, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Ashley Massaro should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. She may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Massaro's activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. She is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Ashley really wants such jobs or not, usually because she has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in her path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Massaro's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
