challenges and difficulties
She is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing herself freely and openly is not easy for Ford. Betty Ford tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of her "performance" is an important task for Betty.
Ford is generally not a "joiner" and she does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Betty Ford does participate in a group, she may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or she may simply feel that she does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Betty Ford better than being with groups of her own peers.
Betty Ford takes her ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision. Betty has the ability to acquire true spiritual or imaginative insight, but she can also become so involved in her imaginative, idealistic pursuits that she looses perspective and develops feelings of alienation and isolation.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Betty Ford 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 Betty Ford needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Betty Ford to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Betty Ford needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Betty directs her attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Ford's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Ford's inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Betty Ford needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
