challenges and difficulties
Yun-Fat both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to Chow, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Chow Yun-Fat 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 Yun-Fat.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Chow from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Chow Yun-Fat feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Yun-Fat remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. 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, Chow Yun-Fat needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Chow accomplish this task.
His outlook on life is inclined to be somewhat negative and Chow Yun-Fat tries to avoid relationships and social interaction as much as possible. There is a morose side to Chow'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 Chow Yun-Fat 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 Chow Yun-Fat needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Chow Yun-Fat to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Chow Yun-Fat needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Chow directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Yun-Fat's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Chow Yun-Fat should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Chow Yun-Fat back, or which he 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.
He is very socially minded and it is easy for Chow Yun-Fat to show his affection. His family or community probably provided fertile ground for his development. Yun-Fat may love to show off a little and he thrives on being involved with others in joyful group activities.
He is somewhat restless and nervous, but enjoys communicating with people and is constantly confronting others with his new ideas. Chow has the ability to develop new relationships quickly and he can also be a stimulating force in group activities.
Yun-Fat makes a big impression on everyone he meets and has the ability to attract many people. Others find Chow Yun-Fat very fascinating and he is likely to see himself as their model in groups or associations.
