challenges and difficulties
Christopher Boyce takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Christopher enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Christopher Boyce also fears entrapment in close relationships.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Christopher from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Christopher Boyce feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Boyce 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, Christopher Boyce needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Christopher accomplish this task.
Christopher Boyce takes his ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision. Christopher has the ability to acquire true spiritual or imaginative insight, but he can also become so involved in his imaginative, idealistic pursuits that he looses perspective and develops feelings of alienation and isolation.
Christopher Boyce tends to experience inner conflicts between his responsibilities and his desires. Boyce may give preference to duties over desires, which makes it very difficult for him to be truly happy.
When he is with others, Christopher Boyce may often suddenly become inhibited. He is inclined to be afraid of confrontations and probably will avoid group activities as much as possible.
He is inclined to be rather serious and withdrawn. As he feels very uncomfortable in the presence of others, Christopher Boyce shies away from social contacts and prefers to be by himself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Christopher Boyce 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 Christopher Boyce needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Christopher Boyce's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Boyce's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Boyce's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Boyce's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Boyce's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Christopher Boyce needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Boyce's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Christopher Boyce has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Boyce 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.
