challenges and difficulties
Bob has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Hope.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Bob from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Bob Hope felt deprived in some manner, whether or not he actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of his needs and feelings may typify his early life, at least as Hope remembers it. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Bob Hope needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Bob accomplish this.
He is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of his objectives. Bob Hope has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in his way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Bob Hope 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 Bob Hope needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Bob stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Bob Hope has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Bob Hope feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Bob Hope calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Bob Hope needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is deep within himself, as Bob Hope faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Bob Hope keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
Because of some other people and circumstances around him, at times Bob Hope may find it difficult to follow his ambitions. It could be to Bob's advantage to sever his relationships with those controlling or trying to abuse him.
