Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Carrie Underwood 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 Carrie Underwood needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Carrie Underwood is apt to shut off the flow of her emotions and ignore her needs and feelings in order to do what she perceives as her 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 her, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering her tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Carrie Underwood's growth. Carrie Underwood needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both herself and others. Letting herself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
