Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Frank Castillo 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 Frank Castillo 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 Frank Castillo - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense.

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.
Frank Castillo 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".

Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
