challenges and difficulties
Short both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Bobby, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Bobby Short is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Short.
It may be difficult for Bobby Short to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Bobby may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Bobby Short also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
Bobby tries to build his life on solid ground, but may find it difficult to move forward, because he always tends to look back. This could result in feelings of inferiority and periodic moods of depression.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Bobby Short 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 Bobby Short needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Bobby Short'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 Short's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Bobby Short 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 Bobby should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Bobby Short can offer the world at large.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Bobby Short is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Short's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Bobby Short back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
The following are specific activities that will support Bobby Short in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Short, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Bobby Short should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up his psychic channels. Meditation that develops Short's intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through his own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Bobby's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
