challenges and difficulties
Dennis Lehane often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he 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 Lehane.
Lehane 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 Dennis Lehane 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 Dennis Lehane better than being with groups of his own peers.
Dennis Lehane seesaws between playing it safe, and doing something unique and original, between self-control and letting loose, between being a responsible adult and a rebellious adolescent, between what Dennis has to or should do and what his spontaneous impulses tell him to do. All of this creates enormous inner tension as well as friction with people in his environment. Dennis Lehane may, for instance, bitterly resent government or authority figures who "crush his individuality", yet ignore his obligations and responsibilities, thus ensuring that they will pursue him. Learning to give each side its due is an ongoing challenge for Lehane.
Dennis Lehane feels that he must work very hard and struggle against tremendous odds that impede his chances of fulfilling his life's ambitions. Dennis may adopt a very hard, cynical, or nihilistic attitude that will only drag him down further. There are major problems with his father or figures of authority. Dennis Lehane may fail simply to spite "them", without realizing that he is primarily hurting himself. If he can overcome his feelings of loneliness, bitterness or isolation, and direct his energies toward constructive endeavors, Lehane can be immensely effective because of his tremendous tenacity and potential for achievement.
His vitality tends to be a bit low and Dennis may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, Dennis Lehane is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps his upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in his relationships with his parents.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dennis Lehane 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 Dennis Lehane needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Dennis Lehane 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 Dennis' quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Lehane's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Dennis Lehane to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Dennis Lehane is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Dennis Lehane needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Dennis Lehane between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Dennis Lehane seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Lehane's task.
