Daphne du Maurier
challenges and difficulties
Daphne du Maurier often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something she cannot name or specify, and she may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for du Maurier.
Daphne du Maurier takes both her work and her health very seriously, but she may demand so much of her at work that she compromise her health. Daphne can become a workaholic, not so much because she has lofty ambitions, but because she never feels like she has done enough. Daphne du Maurier is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that she may not enjoy it at all.
du Maurier 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, Daphne du Maurier will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Daphne feel a little out of step with others. Daphne du Maurier 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 Daphne feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Daphne du Maurier 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.
Daphne du Maurier has a tendency to be too critical of herself. She may be plagued by feelings of guilt about some past events, leading to further self-doubt. Daphne must learn to handle her frustration, depression and discontentment and try to overcome her lack of self-confidence.
She is inclined to exercise self-control and tries to suppress her inner excitability or irritability. du Maurier can be somewhat self-willed, though, and strive to be independent. If Daphne du Maurier feels that someone is holding her down too much, she may suddenly break up the relationship.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Daphne du Maurier 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 Daphne du Maurier needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Daphne du Maurier is apt to shut off the flow of her emotions and ignore her needs and feelings in order to do what she perceives as her duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of her, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering her tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Daphne du Maurier's growth. Daphne du Maurier needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both herself and others. Letting herself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in her public life and career that Daphne du Maurier is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact du Maurier's reputation and standing in her community or professional circle, as well as how Daphne du Maurier achieves her important life goals and aspirations.
