challenges and difficulties
Chappelle is wary of becoming emotionally dependent on others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Dave Chappelle may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Dave.
Dave may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Dave Chappelle is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Chappelle wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by a great deal of caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Dave Chappelle has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Dave also fears it and holds back. Dave Chappelle may blame practical limitations, some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Dave Chappelle will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Dave feel a little out of step with others. Dave Chappelle 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 Dave feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Dave Chappelle has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
At times Dave Chappelle struggles with nebulous worries, insecurities and fears that may be difficult to pinpoint. Mostly, he may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of his mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Dave Chappelle has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if his religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting himself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Dave occasionally.
His vitality tends to be a bit low and Dave may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, Dave Chappelle is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps his upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in his relationship with his parents.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dave Chappelle 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 Dave Chappelle needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Dave Chappelle has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Dave Chappelle needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Dave Chappelle needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Dave Chappelle needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Dave Chappelle should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Dave Chappelle back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Dave Chappelle's rigid self-control overly restricts his ability to freely express himself or explore possibilities. He is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. He tends to be fearful, judgmental towards himself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside himself. Dave Chappelle should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Chappelle's responsibility.
