challenges and difficulties
George has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Orwell.
It may be difficult for George Orwell to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
George may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, George Orwell also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
A deep thinker, George Orwell has good powers of concentration. But Orwell thinks slowly and takes his time making decisions, which is likely to be based on practical and economical methods. Having little to say, George Orwell prefers to talk about serious or sad things.
George Orwell has a desire to break away from tradition and to free himself from restricting conditions. Somewhat inflexible and rigid, he may suddenly become inhibited before he initiates his objectives, which could work out to Orwell's disadvantage.
George Orwell may often be coerced into doing things that he does not want to do, leaving him frustrated, irritable and touchy. George could turn hard and unforgiving toward others and may break up some important relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which George Orwell 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 George Orwell 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, George stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. George Orwell 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 George Orwell feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what George Orwell calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. George Orwell 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 his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within George Orwell between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. George Orwell seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Orwell's task.
The following are specific activities that will support George Orwell in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Orwell, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
George Orwell should become a warrior and cultivate a positive, victorious, active approach to life and to any problems he faces. It is in Orwell's best interest to act on his own behalf instead of stalling, waiting or hoping someone else will do it for him. George Orwell needs to assert himself openly and courageously and not to be afraid to make mistakes or stumble; there are bound to be a few trial runs to any new initiative. George needs to foster a healthy fighting spirit, pick himself up, and go! He also should learn to appreciate conflict and confrontation as a means to grow.
