challenges and difficulties
Fyodor has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Dostoevsky.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Fyodor from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Fyodor Dostoevsky felt deprived in some manner, whether or not he actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of his needs and feelings may typify his early life, at least as Dostoevsky remembers it. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Fyodor Dostoevsky needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Fyodor accomplish this.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Fyodor Dostoevsky pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Fyodor Dostoevsky underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
He prefers to work alone rather than with other people. Content on his own, Dostoevsky tends to become inhibited when he is with others, especially women. Fyodor Dostoevsky may feel that the effort required to be with others is too great and probably not even worth it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Fyodor Dostoevsky 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 Fyodor Dostoevsky needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Dostoevsky's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Fyodor Dostoevsky has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is in his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Fyodor Dostoevsky needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Fyodor Dostoevsky should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
Fyodor has an inspiring, trustworthy and courteous manner, bringing lots of friends and acquaintances with similar interests into his life. His parental home is probably very harmonious and Fyodor Dostoevsky feels strongly connected with his family.
