challenges and difficulties
Dylan McDermott has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Dylan is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Dylan McDermott 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 McDermott's which may inhibit him a great deal. Dylan McDermott 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.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Dylan McDermott does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Dylan McDermott must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Dylan McDermott pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Dylan McDermott underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
He is likely to have very intense experiences in his emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Dylan McDermott could be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dylan McDermott 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 Dylan McDermott needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Dylan McDermott's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though McDermott's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Dylan McDermott is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Dylan should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Dylan McDermott can offer the world at large.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Dylan McDermott to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Dylan McDermott has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
The following are specific activities that will support Dylan McDermott in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to McDermott, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Dylan McDermott should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen his ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. He needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Dylan can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Dylan McDermott has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
He may have the feeling that he constantly has to surrender to the wishes of other people and he gives the impression of having a passive or indifferent role in his relationships. Dylan McDermott never takes the initiative and depends on the support of groups he is affiliated with.
