challenges and difficulties
Evelyn Keyes 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 Keyes knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Evelyn Keyes may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Evelyn 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.
Evelyn Keyes takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Keyes a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Evelyn Keyes and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Keyes will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Basically shy, Keyes tends to be somewhat inhibited in love relationships and may feel uncomfortable or awkward expressing her love for someone. Evelyn Keyes longs for love relationships and dreams about love, but is also inclined to torment herself because of a seeming lack of affection.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Evelyn Keyes 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 Evelyn Keyes needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
She is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on her path, but when under stress Evelyn Keyes becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what she has, she is apt to ignore the subtle signals she receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Evelyn Keyes needs to learn the limits of her ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for her. Keyes also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Evelyn Keyes tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
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 Evelyn Keyes is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Evelyn Keyes needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Keyes.
The following are specific activities that will support Evelyn Keyes in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Keyes, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Evelyn Keyes should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put herself "out there", be seen and shine. Evelyn needs to be willing to take on a leading role. She needs to be a hero - a protagonist in her own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities she possesses. Doing creative work that she is proud of - anything that comes from Keyes' heart and bears the stamp of Keyes' individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than she is a way for Evelyn Keyes to grow and become more whole herself.
