challenges and difficulties
She is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing herself freely and openly is not easy for Paglia. Camille Paglia tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of her "performance" is an important task for Camille.
She is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with her duty, her public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Camille Paglia understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and she is capable of much self-discipline and patience once she sets her sights on a goal.
But Camille Paglia is very judgmental and hard on herself if she fails to attain success, and she can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize her efforts.
Paglia knows her own shortcomings and is able to overcome many frustrations and limitations. She concentrates on her aims and goes about achieving them, even if she has to sacrifice something for it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Camille Paglia instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Camille Paglia needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Camille Paglia needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Camille's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Paglia's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Camille Paglia to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Camille Paglia is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Camille Paglia needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Camille Paglia has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Paglia will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
