challenges and difficulties
Henry Rollins has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Henry is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Henry Rollins often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Rollins' that may inhibit him a great deal. Henry Rollins must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Henry may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Henry Rollins is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Rollins wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Henry Rollins pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and he is willing to take his time, advancing slowly and steadily toward his goal.
Sometimes Henry Rollins underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
The side of Henry Rollins that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension as a result, and at times Henry finds it hard to relax. Henry Rollins may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Rollins' task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
Basically shy, Rollins tends to be somewhat inhibited in love relationships and may feel uncomfortable or awkward expressing his love for someone. Henry Rollins longs for love relationships and dreams about love, but is also inclined to torment himself because of a seeming lack of affection.
Henry Rollins may often be coerced into doing things that he does not want to do, leaving him frustrated, irritable and touchy. Henry could turn hard and unforgiving toward others and may break up some important relationships.
He is inclined to be rather serious and withdrawn. As he feels very uncomfortable in the presence of others, Henry Rollins shies away from social contacts and prefers to be by himself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Henry Rollins 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 Henry Rollins 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 Henry Rollins copes with stress. Henry Rollins 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 Henry Rollins to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Rollins' inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Henry Rollins needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Henry Rollins back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Excessive thinking, rationalizing or talking, the overuse or misuse of Rollins' intellectual abilities and the tendency to allow his energy to be dissipated in trivial activities.
The following are specific activities that will support Henry Rollins in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Rollins, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Henry Rollins' path to wholeness involves confronting his dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming himself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Rollins' willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Henry.
Henry Rollins thinks of others before he thinks of himself and is always ready to lend a helping hand. He is deeply concerned with the community he lives in, loves his family and relatives and has a strong need to maintain close relationships with them.
His relationships with others may be rather unstable and unreliable. With a somewhat negative attitude and weak will, Henry Rollins avoids opposition and escapes his responsibilities. In his relationships he is likely to choose people who are asocial.
