challenges and difficulties
Paltrow doubts her own intelligence and mental capacities, and she may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Gwyneth 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.
Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Gwyneth from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Gwyneth Paltrow felt deprived in some manner, whether or not she actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of her needs and feelings may typify her early life, at least as Paltrow remembers it. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Gwyneth Paltrow needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Gwyneth accomplish this.
Paltrow works quietly to get ahead, but may have to work harder than others to gain recognition for her efforts. Reserved and shy, Gwyneth Paltrow tends to build a wall between herself and others and she seems to be more receptive to older and mature people.
Gwyneth Paltrow may often be coerced into doing things that she does not want to do, leaving her frustrated, irritable and touchy. Gwyneth could turn hard and unforgiving toward others and may break up some important relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Gwyneth Paltrow 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 Gwyneth Paltrow needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Gwyneth Paltrow has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Gwyneth Paltrow 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. Gwyneth Paltrow needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Gwyneth Paltrow is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
