challenges and difficulties
Dennis Rodman has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Dennis is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Dennis Rodman often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Rodman's which may inhibit him a great deal. Dennis Rodman must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Dennis Rodman has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Dennis limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Dennis Rodman difficult to get to know intimately, as Rodman tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dennis Rodman 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 Rodman needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Dennis Rodman copes with stress. Dennis Rodman also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Dennis Rodman to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Dennis Rodman has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Rodman will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The following are specific activities that will support Dennis Rodman in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Rodman, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Dennis Rodman's path to wholeness involves confronting his dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming himself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Rodman's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Dennis.
