challenges and difficulties
Evangeline Lilly 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 Lilly knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Evangeline Lilly may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Evangeline 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.
Lilly 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 Evangeline Lilly 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 Evangeline Lilly better than being with groups of her own peers.
Her ambition and desire for power may be somewhat out of proportion and Lilly can be quite ruthless when faced with potential obstacles and difficulties. Evangeline Lilly must learn to control her temper and be willing to compromise.
Lilly forges ahead diligently, but may have to work harder than others to gain recognition for her efforts. Reserved and shy, Evangeline Lilly tends to build a wall between herself and others and she seems to be more receptive to older and more mature people.
She is a bit skeptical, somewhat irritable, and others may find Evangeline Lilly quarrelsome or nagging. Her nervousness seems to stem from her tendency to over-work herself, and Lilly should try not to make more demands on others than they are able to handle.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Evangeline Lilly 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 Evangeline Lilly needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Evangeline Lilly copes with stress. Evangeline Lilly also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Evangeline Lilly to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Evangeline Lilly is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The following are specific activities that will support Evangeline Lilly in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Lilly, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Evangeline Lilly should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. She may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Lilly's activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. She is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Evangeline really wants such jobs or not, usually because she has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in her path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Lilly's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
She is very obliging in her interaction with other people and can easily relate to them. Evangeline Lilly is likely to have many friends and acquaintances who share the same ideas and viewpoints as she does.
Evangeline Lilly has a very sympathetic and compassionate attitude toward others and shows an interest in their well-being. Her relationships are more on a personal basis and people are drawn to Lilly because of her sincerity and kindness.
