H. G. Wells
challenges and difficulties
Wells both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Herbert, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Herbert George Wells is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Wells.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Herbert. 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, Herbert George Wells is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Wells wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
At times Herbert George Wells struggles with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, he may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of his mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Herbert George Wells has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if his religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting himself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Herbert occasionally.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Herbert George Wells 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 Herbert George Wells 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, Herbert stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Herbert George Wells 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 Herbert George Wells feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Herbert George Wells calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Herbert George Wells 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 marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Herbert George Wells to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Herbert George Wells has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
The following are specific activities that will support Herbert George Wells in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Wells, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Herbert George Wells should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put himself "out there", be seen and shine. Herbert needs to be willing to take on a leading role. He needs to be a hero - a protagonist in his own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities he possesses. Doing creative work that he is proud of - anything that comes from Wells' heart and bears the stamp of Wells' individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than he is a way for Herbert George Wells to grow and become more whole himself.
He is highly emotional and tends to display his feelings in a theatrical way. Herbert George Wells seems to enjoy being somewhat eccentric and finds it difficult to adapt himself to others. Although he may seek emotional fulfillment, Herbert does not do well in relationships and team work.
