challenges and difficulties
Elizabeth Edwards has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Edwards knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Elizabeth Edwards may be something of a hypochondriac also. Elizabeth must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Edwards is generally not a "joiner" and she does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Elizabeth Edwards does participate in a group, she may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or she may simply feel that she does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Elizabeth Edwards better than being with groups of her own peers.
Somewhat shy, Elizabeth finds it difficult to relate to people and tends to withdraw from others. Since it is hard for Elizabeth Edwards to establish relationships, she would rather be by herself. Elizabeth likes everything simple or plain and prefers a more humble and secluded life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Elizabeth Edwards 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 Elizabeth Edwards 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 Elizabeth Edwards - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Edwards tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Elizabeth Edwards is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she 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 Edwards' most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Elizabeth Edwards needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
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 Elizabeth Edwards to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Elizabeth Edwards has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
