challenges and difficulties
Martin fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon 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, Dean Martin 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 Dean.
It may be difficult for Dean Martin to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Dean may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Dean Martin also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
Dean Martin takes his ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision. Dean 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.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dean Martin 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 Dean Martin needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Dean Martin has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Dean Martin 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. Dean Martin needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in his public life and career that Dean Martin is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Martin's reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Dean Martin achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
Dean Martin tends to feel inferior and his attitude in the presence of others could be a bit negative or weak. He is inclined to shy away from groups and would be a rather quiet and passive member of an organization or association.
