Billie Jean King
challenges and difficulties
King doubts her own intelligence and mental capacities, and she may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Billie Jean is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for her.
It may be difficult for Billie Jean King 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.
Billie Jean 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, Billie Jean King also needs to learn to relax and enjoy herself more.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Billie Jean King 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 Billie Jean King needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Billie Jean King's path lies in her development as an individual, the discovery of her own strengths and joys, the capacity to express her uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though King's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Billie Jean King is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, she may believe that striving to do her personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Billie Jean should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Billie Jean King can offer the world at large.
It is in her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. She may see the qualities that she needs to develop more fully (described above) in her partner. It is important for Billie Jean King to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Billie Jean King has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
