challenges and difficulties
Hugh Laurie has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Hugh is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Hugh Laurie 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 Laurie's that may inhibit him a great deal. Hugh Laurie 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.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Hugh from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Hugh Laurie feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Laurie remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Hugh Laurie needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Hugh accomplish this task.
He is quite cool and reserved in matters of love relationships and tends to hold back his inclination for love. Somewhat inhibited with regard to relationships, Hugh Laurie is inclined to feel that he is better off staying by himself.
Hugh Laurie tends to be somewhat gloomy and may feel that life is difficult and that his will is blocked in some way. Hugh may find it hard to make decisions and to concentrate on his goals, which he may consider unworthy.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Hugh Laurie 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 Hugh Laurie 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, Hugh stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Hugh Laurie 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 Hugh Laurie feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Hugh Laurie calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Hugh Laurie 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 dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Hugh Laurie needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Hugh Laurie should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
