challenges and difficulties
Dale has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Davis.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Dale Davis may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Dale may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Dale Davis may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
At times Dale Davis struggles with nebulous worries, insecurities and fears that may be difficult to pinpoint. Mostly, he may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of his mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Dale Davis has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if his religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting himself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Dale occasionally.
Dale Davis tends to be his own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of himself and harshly criticizing or persecuting himself when he does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in his life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Dale's belief that he must struggle alone.
He is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Dale Davis develops his power and inner strength. However, Dale Davis should not make life harder than it is. He must give himself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that he is only human.
Dale Davis 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, Dale feels that he cannot live up to his ideals and ends up disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dale Davis 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 Dale Davis 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 Dale Davis - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Davis 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.
Dale Davis 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 Davis' most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Dale Davis 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 Dale Davis has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Davis 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.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Dale Davis back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Dale Davis tends to over-rely on luck or grace, living for tomorrow and gambling. Dale is overconfident and tends to overextend himself and take on more than is humanly possible. Dale is often dogmatic about his philosophy of life or religious beliefs.
Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive anti-authoritarian attitude. Dale Davis seeks constant (and often purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable people, and individual freedom at any cost.
The following are specific activities that will support Dale Davis in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Davis, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Dale Davis should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put himself "out there", be seen and shine. Dale needs to be willing to take on a leading role. He needs to be a hero - a protagonist in his own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities he possesses. Doing creative work that he is proud of - anything that comes from Davis' heart and bears the stamp of Davis' individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than he is a way for Dale Davis to grow and become more whole himself.
He is gay and cheerful in the company of others and happy to be with them. Dale Davis is fond of telling jokes and is likely to entertain everyone. His relationships with others tend to be for a common purpose.
