challenges and difficulties
Barbara Gibb 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 Gibb knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Barbara Gibb may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Barbara 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.
Barbara Gibb has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Barbara limits herself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in herself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Barbara Gibb difficult to get to know intimately, as Gibb tends to distance herself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Barbara Gibb 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 Barbara Gibb 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 Barbara Gibb 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.
Barbara Gibb 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. Gibb also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Barbara Gibb tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Barbara Gibb is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Gibb's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
Gibb constantly seems to be under tremendous pressure and she wants to achieve record performances. Because she has a strong desire to accomplish immense tasks through teamwork with others, Barbara Gibb has a tendency to demand too much of other people.
