challenges and difficulties
Evert both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know her intimately does not come easily to Chris, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Chris Evert 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 Evert.
She may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Chris Evert does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Chris Evert must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Chris Evert tends to suppress her feelings and may be somewhat inhibited in love relationships. She may often feel rejected or she may give the impression of rejecting others herself. Perhaps her mother or father found it difficult to express their affection.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Chris Evert 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 Chris Evert needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Chris Evert has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Chris Evert needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, she 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, she may encourage others to depend on her emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Chris Evert needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Chris Evert needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Chris Evert should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Chris Evert in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Evert, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Chris Evert should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put herself "out there", be seen and shine. Chris needs to be willing to take on a leading role. She needs to be a hero - a protagonist in her own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities she possesses. Doing creative work that she is proud of - anything that comes from Evert's heart and bears the stamp of Evert's individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than she is a way for Chris Evert to grow and become more whole herself.
Her relationships with others may be rather unstable and unreliable. With a somewhat negative attitude and weak will, Chris Evert avoids opposition and escapes her responsibilities. In her relationships she is likely to choose people who are asocial.
