challenges and difficulties
Malone both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know her intimately does not come easily to Dorothy, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Dorothy Malone is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Malone.
Dorothy may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. She strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for her.
On another level entirely, Dorothy Malone is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Malone wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Dorothy Malone has a tendency to think on the dark side, is somewhat gloomy and touchy and easily disappointed. She may find it hard to keeps her attention on the real world and may become obsessed with strange ideas and fanciful beliefs.
Dorothy Malone may often be coerced into doing things that she does not want to do, leaving her frustrated, irritable and touchy. Dorothy could turn hard and unforgiving toward others and may break up some important relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dorothy Malone 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 Malone 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. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Dorothy Malone copes with stress. Dorothy Malone also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Dorothy Malone to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
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 Dorothy Malone to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Dorothy Malone has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
