challenges and difficulties
Ayn has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave her feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with her peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Rand.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Ayn. She strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for her.
On another level entirely, Ayn Rand is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Rand wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
She is inclined to be rather serious and withdrawn. Feeling very uncomfortable in the presence of others, Ayn Rand shies away from social contacts and prefers to be by herself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ayn Rand 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 Ayn Rand 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 Ayn Rand copes with stress. Ayn Rand 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 Ayn Rand to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Ayn Rand is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Rand's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
Ayn Rand tends to pick her friends and associates very carefully and is always on the look-out for responsible and congenial people. This enables Ayn Rand to feel secure with her colleagues and she enjoys good relationships with them.
She may have an inner fear of separation and could feel left out or ignored at times. Ayn Rand may have not received much affection while she was growing up or it had to be shared with others. Ayn could find it difficult to show her love in her relationships.
