challenges and difficulties
Bruce Springsteen has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Springsteen knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Bruce Springsteen may be something of a hypochondriac also. Bruce must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Bruce from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Bruce Springsteen 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 Springsteen 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, Bruce Springsteen needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Bruce accomplish this.
He is inclined to feel inferior and may easily be taken in by others. Bruce has to guard against being deceived or used by others, though his intentions may be good. Bruce Springsteen must not let his desire to have things cloud his ability to see what is really happening.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Bruce Springsteen 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 Bruce Springsteen needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Bruce Springsteen - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Springsteen tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Bruce Springsteen is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Springsteen's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Bruce Springsteen needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Bruce Springsteen is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Bruce Springsteen back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Excessive thinking, rationalizing, talking, and overuse or misuse of Springsteen's intellectual abilities, as well as dissipating Springsteen's energy in trivial activities.
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or unreal, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), passivity, waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help himself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people, being a martyr.
