challenges and difficulties
Clyde has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Barrow.
Barrow is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Clyde Barrow does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Clyde Barrow better than being with groups of his own peers.
Clyde Barrow strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
He may feel inhibited in his relationships with others and give the impression of being unapproachable and wanting to keeps his distance. Clyde Barrow thinks about his feelings a long time before he expresses them to anyone and he tends to hide his inner self.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Clyde Barrow 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 Clyde Barrow needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Clyde Barrow needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Clyde's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Barrow's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Clyde Barrow to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Clyde Barrow is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Clyde Barrow needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is deep within himself, as Clyde Barrow faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Clyde Barrow keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
The following are specific activities that will support Clyde Barrow in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Barrow, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Clyde Barrow's path to wholeness involves confronting his dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming himself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Barrow's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Clyde.
He is very social minded and it is easy for Clyde Barrow to show his affection. His family or community probably provided good possibilities for his development. Barrow may love to show off a little and he thrives on being involved with others in joyful group activities.
