challenges and difficulties

Dorothy Dandridge tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Dandridge withholds her thoughts and opinions until she has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Dorothy's silence discomforts others.
Her mental concentration is very good but her breadth of understanding may not be.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Dorothy Dandridge will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Dorothy feel a little out of step with others. Dorothy Dandridge 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 Dorothy feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Dorothy Dandridge has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.

Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dorothy Dandridge 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 Dorothy Dandridge needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like.
