challenges and difficulties
Christopher Reeve takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. 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 Reeve also fears entrapment in close relationships.
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Christopher Reeve tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Reeve withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Christopher's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Christopher Reeve 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 Reeve becomes tense and upset rather easily. He becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In his eagerness to see his inspirations materialize, Reeve is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving his goals. His occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Christopher Reeve tends to be shy, sensitive and stiff with his emotions and may have difficulty expressing his true feelings, even though his affection for someone is there. One of Reeve's parents may have been too strict and unloving, and so Christopher may fear close relationships.
He is likely to have very intense experiences in his emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Christopher Reeve could be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
Christopher Reeve has a tendency to feel inadequate, perhaps even unlovable, and he tends to withdraw from others. Consequently, Reeve may feel lonely and out of touch with everyone and that he has no support from anyone.

Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Christopher Reeve 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 Reeve needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Christopher Reeve's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Reeve's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Reeve's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Reeve'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?" Reeve's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Christopher Reeve needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Reeve's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Christopher Reeve to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Christopher Reeve has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Christopher Reeve back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Staying in relationships with domineering, controlling, abusive people or being manipulative, misusing his own power, and using other people to his own selfish ends.
Christopher Reeve 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 Reeve in the future.
