Gael García Bernal
challenges and difficulties
Gael García Bernal has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Bernal knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Gael García Bernal may be something of a hypochondriac also. Gael must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Gael García Bernal takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Bernal a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Gael García Bernal and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Bernal will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Gael García Bernal strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
At times circumstances seem to be pushing against Gael, and he may have to withstand severe challenges. Gael García Bernal will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning him hard and cold hearted in his decisions because of it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Gael García Bernal 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 Gael García Bernal needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Gael García Bernal copes with stress. Gael García Bernal also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Gael García Bernal to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Gael García Bernal to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Gael García Bernal has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
Not at all selfish, Gael García Bernal has the ability to share the joy he feels with other people. Gael seems to have a gift for getting more reserved people to open up, teaching them how to give and receive love and affection.
