challenges and difficulties
Ben Whishaw takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Ben enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Ben Whishaw also fears entrapment in close relationships.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Ben Whishaw may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Ben may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Ben Whishaw may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Ben Whishaw pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and he is willing to take his time, advancing slowly and steadily toward his goal.
Sometimes Ben Whishaw underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Basically shy, Ben may become a bit inhibited when talking with other people. Ben Whishaw tends to withdraw from others and likes to live a humble, quiet life in seclusion. He may get involved with a group of a secretive nature, although Whishaw is not generally one to join groups.
At some point in his life Ben Whishaw may experience a tragic love relationship that affects him deeply. He may remain heavily burdened by certain disturbing experiences, thereby rendering Ben cold or bitter.
Although Ben Whishaw is generally happy, at times he could become somewhat inhibited and because of this, he may occasionally let good opportunities slip by. Although he is interested in people, Whishaw also tends to periodically seek seclusion.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ben Whishaw 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 Ben Whishaw needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Ben Whishaw's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Whishaw's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Ben Whishaw is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Ben should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Ben Whishaw can offer the world at large.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Ben Whishaw has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Whishaw will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
