challenges and difficulties
She is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing herself freely and openly is not easy for Mendes. Eva Mendes tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of her "performance" is an important task for Eva.
She is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Eva Mendes tries to be strictly accurate and she is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Mendes withholds her thoughts and opinions until she has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Eva's silence discomforts others.
Her mental concentration is very good but her breadth of understanding may not be.
She may feel inhibited in her relationships with others and give the impression of being unapproachable and wanting to keeps her distance. Eva Mendes thinks about her feelings a long time before she expresses them to anyone and she tends to hide her inner self.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Eva Mendes 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 Eva Mendes needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively she is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Eva stands alone when she does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Eva Mendes has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that she must be self-reliant and that only she can come up with the answers she needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate her from others, or make Eva Mendes feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Eva Mendes calls social "games" do not come naturally to her. Eva Mendes needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Mendes' inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Eva Mendes needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
Her relationships with others could be rather unstable and unreliable. With a somewhat negative attitude and weak will, Eva Mendes avoids opposition and escapes her responsibilities. In her relationships she is likely to choose people who are asocial.
Eva Mendes tends to have a certain fear of crowds and may find it hard to integrate herself into a group of people. Working with others is not easy for Mendes, and she may frequently encounter some upsets or hostility.
