challenges and difficulties
Gene Roddenberry 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 Roddenberry knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Gene Roddenberry may be something of a hypochondriac also. Gene 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.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Gene from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Gene Roddenberry 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 Roddenberry 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, Gene Roddenberry needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Gene accomplish this.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Gene Roddenberry 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 Gene Roddenberry underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Because of his inner reserve and basic shyness, Gene Roddenberry appears to lack adaptability and is a bit inhibited in dealing with other people. His approach is somewhat serious and it is difficult for Gene to face the public.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Gene Roddenberry 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 Gene Roddenberry needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Gene stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Gene Roddenberry has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Gene Roddenberry feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Gene Roddenberry calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Gene Roddenberry needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Roddenberry's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Gene Roddenberry needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
