challenges and difficulties
Erika Christensen takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Erika enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Erika Christensen also fears entrapment in close relationships.
She may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Erika Christensen does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Erika Christensen must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
She is suspicious of groups, crowds, and social organizations. Christensen is quick to pick up on social charades and insincerity and avoids the limelight and glamour. Erika Christensen is direct and to the point in speech and manner, stubborn and inflexible, and often unwilling to communicate her innermost feelings and thoughts.
She is inclined to exercise self-control and tries to suppress her inner excitability or irritability. Christensen can be somewhat self-willed, though, and strive to be independent. If Erika Christensen feels that someone is holding her down too much, she may suddenly break up the relationship.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Erika Christensen 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 Erika Christensen needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Erika Christensen is apt to shut off the flow of her emotions and ignore her needs and feelings in order to do what she perceives as her duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of her, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering her tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Erika Christensen's growth. Erika Christensen needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both herself and others. Letting herself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Erika Christensen is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Erika Christensen needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Christensen.
