Charles de Gaulle
challenges and difficulties
Charles de Gaulle has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way de Gaulle knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Charles de Gaulle may be something of a hypochondriac also. Charles must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
de Gaulle is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Charles de Gaulle does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Charles de Gaulle better than being with groups of his own peers.
Around others de Gaulle is somewhat humble and shy and prefer to be by himself. Charles de Gaulle 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 Charles de Gaulle 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 Charles de Gaulle needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Charles de Gaulle needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his 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 Charles' quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting de Gaulle's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Charles de Gaulle to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Charles de Gaulle is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Charles de Gaulle needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Charles de Gaulle has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. de Gaulle 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.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Charles de Gaulle back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in his life.
