challenges and difficulties
Pierce both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Charles, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Charlie Pierce is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Pierce.
It may be difficult for Charlie Pierce to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Charles may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Charlie Pierce also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Charlie Pierce 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 Charlie Pierce needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Charlie Pierce has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Charlie Pierce needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Charlie Pierce needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Charlie Pierce has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Pierce 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 Charlie Pierce back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive anti-authoritarian attitude. Charlie Pierce seeks constant (and often purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable people, and individual freedom at any cost.
Charlie Pierce tends to have deep bonds with the people he associates with and is likely to encounter some unusual or fated relationships. Some of his contacts could be with very influential people who may be of help to Pierce in the future.
