challenges and difficulties
Buddy has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Rogers.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Buddy from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Buddy Rogers 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 Rogers 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, Buddy Rogers needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Buddy accomplish this.
His outlook on life is inclined to be somewhat negative and Buddy Rogers tries to avoid relationships and social interaction as much as possible. There is a morose side to Buddy's nature that makes him feel that no one cares about him, that life is difficult and perhaps not even worthwhile.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Buddy Rogers 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 Buddy Rogers needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Buddy Rogers copes with stress. Buddy Rogers also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Buddy Rogers to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Buddy Rogers 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.
