challenges and difficulties
Eartha Kitt has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Kitt is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Eartha Kitt takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Eartha Kitt has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Eartha limits herself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in herself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Eartha Kitt difficult to get to know intimately, as Kitt tends to distance herself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
Eartha Kitt tends to be her own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of herself and harshly criticizing or persecuting herself when she does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in her life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Eartha's belief that she must struggle alone.
She is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Eartha Kitt develops her power and inner strength. However, Eartha Kitt should not make life harder than it is. She must give herself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that she is only human.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Eartha Kitt 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 Eartha Kitt needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Eartha Kitt needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Eartha's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Kitt's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Eartha Kitt to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Eartha Kitt is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Eartha Kitt needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
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 Eartha Kitt to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Eartha Kitt has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Eartha Kitt back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Eartha Kitt's rigid self-control overly restricts her ability to freely express herself or explore possibilities. She is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. She tends to be fearful, judgmental towards herself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside herself. Eartha Kitt should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Kitt's responsibility.
