He may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Gilbert Roland does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Gilbert Roland must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.

Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Gilbert Roland 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 Gilbert Roland needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Gilbert Roland's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd.

When under stress Gilbert Roland is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Gilbert should let go of this notion.
