challenges and difficulties
Brad Whitford 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 Brad enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Brad Whitford also fears entrapment in close relationships.
Brad Whitford takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Whitford a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Brad Whitford and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Whitford will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Brad Whitford tends to seesaw between hope, optimism and faith versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. He needs to overcome impatience and restlessness in order to achieve his dreams and desires for a better life.
Brad Whitford becomes tense and upset rather easily. He becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In his eagerness to see his inspirations materialize, Whitford is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving his goals. His occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Brad is inclined to be quite reserved and cautious in his relationships with others, yet he may also have an exaggerated regard for other peoples' views, thereby giving them more credence than they are worth.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Brad Whitford 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 Brad Whitford needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Whitford's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Brad Whitford has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is deep within himself, as Brad Whitford faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Brad Whitford keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.

Doing creative work that he is proud of - anything that comes from Whitford's heart and bears the stamp of Whitford's individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than he is a way for Brad Whitford to grow and become more whole himself.
