challenges and difficulties
Debbie Allen has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Allen knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Debbie Allen may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Debbie must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Debbie Allen has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Debbie limits herself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in herself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Debbie Allen difficult to get to know intimately, as Allen tends to distance herself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Debbie Allen 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 Debbie Allen needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Debbie Allen - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Allen tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Debbie Allen is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Allen's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Debbie Allen needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. She may see the qualities that she needs to develop more fully (described above) in her partner. It is important for Debbie Allen to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Debbie Allen has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Debbie Allen back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
