challenges and difficulties

Payton is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Barbara Payton takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
It may be difficult for Barbara Payton to play spontaneously or just let her hair down, for she tends to inhibit that side of her by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression she is making.
Barbara may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for she wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged and recognized as special in some way. Though she may indeed be outstanding, Barbara Payton also needs to learn to relax and enjoy herself more.
Barbara tries to build her life on solid ground, but may find it difficult to move forward because she always tends to look back. This could result in feelings of inferiority and periodic depression.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Barbara Payton 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 Payton needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Barbara Payton needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Barbara's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Payton's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Barbara Payton to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Barbara Payton is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Barbara Payton needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
