challenges and difficulties
Union doubts her own intelligence and mental capacities, and she may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Gabrielle is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for her.
Gabrielle Union takes both her work and her health very seriously, but she may demand so much of herself at work that she compromises her health. Gabrielle can become a workaholic, not so much because she has lofty ambitions, but because she never feels like she has done enough. Gabrielle Union is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that she may not enjoy it at all.
Union can also get overly involved in self-improvement or her health, and she tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
She is inclined to be somewhat withdrawn and has a hard time discussing important matters with her family and close relationships. As a serious and deep thinker, Gabrielle Union would like to explain her views to others, but has a difficult time finding the right words.
Because she lacks self-confidence, Gabrielle Union has the feeling that her luck has abandoned her. She is inclined to sit and wait for the right opportunities to come along, place too much emphasis on wishful thinking, and then get disappointed when nothing happens.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Gabrielle Union 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 Gabrielle Union needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Gabrielle Union has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Gabrielle Union needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, she has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, she may encourage others to depend on her emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Gabrielle Union needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in her relationships with others that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Gabrielle Union between acting spontaneously and being true to herself versus modifying herself or her behavior to suit others. Gabrielle Union seesaws between being inordinately concerned with her self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about her. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Union's task.
