challenges and difficulties
Drake Bell has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Bell is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Drake Bell takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
He is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Drake Bell tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Bell withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Drake's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
He is inclined to preserve and build up his heritage. Others are attracted to him, but at the same time Drake Bell gives the impression of being unapproachable. Bell tends to hold back his feelings and is somewhat inhibited with others, especially in his love relationships.
Drake Bell tends to have a pessimistic outlook and he seems to be plagued by deep inner conflicts, which could severely undermine his strength. Self-critical and uncertain about his goals, Drake feels that he cannot live up to his ideals and ends up disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Drake Bell 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 Drake Bell 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 Drake Bell - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Bell tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Drake Bell is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he 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 Bell's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Drake Bell needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Drake Bell has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Bell 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.
His conversations with others tend to be lively and productive but could also easily turn into arguments. The subject of Bell's discussions is likely to concern educational matters.
