challenges and difficulties
He is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing himself freely and openly is not easy for Barāt. Carl Barāt tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of his "performance" is an important task for Carl.
He may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Carl Barāt does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Carl Barāt must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Carl dislikes tense or frustrating situations and has a strong desire to free himself from them. Acting quickly at times, Carl suddenly overcomes his inner inhibitions. Carl Barāt also has the ability to aptly grasp difficult situations and to use them for his advancement.
Around others, Barāt is somewhat humble and shy and prefers to be by himself. Carl Barāt tends to limit his relationships with others and associates only with like-minded people. He is inclined to be cool and reserved even toward those he loves.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Carl Barāt 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 Carl Barāt needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Carl stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Carl Barāt has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Carl Barāt feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Carl Barāt calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Carl Barāt needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Carl Barāt needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Carl Barāt should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
Carl has the inclination to gossip and spread stories or he could be the subject of gossip himself at times. His perception of partnership and family relationships tends to be somewhat unrealistic, and Carl Barāt may put up a good front and pretend to have a harmonious life.
He is somewhat restless and unpredictable by nature, and as a result, others may see Carl as a little unstable. Carl Barāt is inclined to involve himself with unusual enterprises and tends to become overly excited in the presence of other people.
Carl Barāt tends to have a certain fear of crowds and may find it hard to integrate himself into a group of people. Working with others is not easy for Barāt, and he may frequently encounter upsets or hostility.
