challenges and difficulties
Christina has difficulty asserting her will and desires directly and openly. She may also suppress her anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in herself are important tasks for Crawford.
Christina Crawford takes both her work and her health very seriously, but she may demand so much of her at work that she compromise her health. Christina can become a workaholic, not so much because she has lofty ambitions, but because she never feels like she has done enough. Christina Crawford is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that she may not enjoy it at all.
Crawford can also get overly involved in self-improvement or her health, and she tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Christina Crawford will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Christina feel a little out of step with others. Christina Crawford takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Christina feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Christina Crawford has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Christina Crawford has a desire to break away from tradition and to free herself from restricting conditions. Somewhat inflexible and rigid, she may suddenly become inhibited before she initiates her objectives, which could work out to Crawford's disadvantage.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Christina Crawford 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 Christina Crawford needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
She is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on her path, but when under stress Christina Crawford becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what she has, she is apt to ignore the subtle signals she receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Christina Crawford needs to learn the limits of her ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for her. Crawford also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Christina Crawford tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is in her relationships with others that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Christina Crawford between acting spontaneously and being true to herself versus modifying herself or her behavior to suit others. Christina Crawford seesaws between being inordinately concerned with her self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about her. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Crawford's task.
Christina Crawford tends to have a certain fear of crowds and may find it hard to integrate herself into a group of people. Working with others is not easy for Crawford, and she may frequently encounter some upsets or hostility.
