challenges and difficulties
Carol has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave her feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with her peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Burnett.
Burnett is generally not a "joiner" and she does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Carol Burnett does participate in a group, she may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or she may simply feel that she does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Carol Burnett better than being with groups of her own peers.
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Carol Burnett has for her life are firmly held in check by her sense of reality. At times she may wish for more freedom, but Carol also fears it and hang back. Carol Burnett may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
Carol Burnett tends to have a pessimistic outlook and she seems to be plagued by deep inner conflicts, which could severely undermine her strength. Self-critical and uncertain about her goals, Carol feels that she cannot live up to her ideals and end up disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Carol Burnett 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 Carol Burnett 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 Burnett's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Carol Burnett has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is deep within herself, as Carol Burnett faces her own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of her life that Carol Burnett keeps hidden from public view where she is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Carol Burnett back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help herself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Carol has a tendency to be a martyr.
Her relationships with others could be rather unstable and unreliable. With a somewhat negative attitude and weak will, Carol Burnett avoids opposition and escapes her responsibilities. In her relationships she is likely to choose people who are asocial.
Because of rigid and somewhat unpleasant family relationships, Carol Burnett is inclined to seclude herself from others. She may prefer to live in archaic surroundings and could be interested in antiques.
