challenges and difficulties
Pompeo either overvalues or undervalues her possessions and assets. She can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Ellen Pompeo may deny herself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of her labors. She may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Ellen Pompeo feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
Her fears revolve around money and material security, and Ellen Pompeo works very hard to ensure that her assets are solid. She may be very conservative, even stingy with her money because she is afraid there will not be enough. She may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
The side of Ellen Pompeo that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with her urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension as a result, and at times Ellen finds it hard to relax. Ellen Pompeo may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on herself, in an attempt to strictly control her "wild" impulses. Pompeo's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in her life.
She is inclined to be somewhat timid and afraid to start something on her own, preferring that someone else tell her what to do. Ellen Pompeo can easily be deterred from pursuing her goals, which makes her advancement in life rather slow.
She is inclined to exercise self-control and tries to suppress her inner excitability or irritability. However, Pompeo can be somewhat self-willed and determined to be independent. If Ellen Pompeo feels that someone is holding her down too much, she may suddenly break up the relationship.
She is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on the one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, Ellen Pompeo may periodically withdraw from situations and people.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ellen Pompeo 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 Ellen Pompeo needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Pompeo's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Ellen Pompeo has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in her relationships with others that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Ellen Pompeo between acting spontaneously and being true to herself versus modifying herself or her behavior to suit others. Ellen Pompeo seesaws between being inordinately concerned with her self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about her. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Pompeo's task.
