challenges and difficulties
Bridges either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Beau Bridges may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Beau Bridges feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
Beau Bridges takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Bridges a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Beau Bridges and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Bridges will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Beau wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Beau Bridges becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and his occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Beau Bridges instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Beau Bridges needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Beau Bridges copes with stress. Beau Bridges also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Beau Bridges to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in his public life and career that Beau Bridges is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Bridges' reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Beau Bridges achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
He is very socially minded and it is easy for Beau Bridges to show his affection. His family or community probably provided fertile ground for his development. Bridges may love to show off a little and he thrives on being involved with others in joyful group activities.
