challenges and difficulties
Hilary Duff has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Duff is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Hilary Duff takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Hilary Duff has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Hilary limits herself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in herself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Hilary Duff difficult to get to know intimately, as Duff tends to distance herself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
She may feel hindered or oppressed by other people frequently and overcoming difficulties jointly with others could come suddenly. Hilary Duff seems to be afraid of her own courage and may find it hard to express her desires.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Hilary Duff 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 Hilary Duff needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Hilary Duff - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Duff tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Hilary Duff is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Duff's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Hilary Duff needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Duff's inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Hilary Duff needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Hilary Duff back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
