challenges and difficulties
Bret 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 Michaels.
Bret may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Bret Michaels is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Michaels wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Bret Michaels strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
He is subject to rash decisions and impulsive actions that may have sudden, unexpected consequences and undesirable results. As he lacks the capacity to adapt, Bret Michaels may encounter considerable tension in his relationships and is likely to have disputes or even violent fights with others.
Since he lacks the capacity to adapt, Bret Michaels tends to be rebellious and fight hard against oppression. This could even lead to violent incidents, so Bret should try to keep his temper at bay. He may have to work extremely hard and handle a great many responsibilities.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Bret Michaels 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 Bret Michaels needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Bret Michaels is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of him, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering his tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Bret Michaels' growth. Bret Michaels needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both himself and others. Letting himself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Bret Michaels between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Bret Michaels seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Michaels' task.
