challenges and difficulties
Jackie Gayda takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Jackie enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Jackie Gayda also fears entrapment in close relationships.
Her attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Jackie Gayda may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to her. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Jackie may tenaciously cling to her grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
Her overall outlook on life is serious, and Jackie Gayda may feel that life or God will punish her if she does not watch her step!
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jackie Gayda 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 Jackie Gayda needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Jackie Gayda is apt to shut off the flow of her emotions and ignore her needs and feelings in order to do what she perceives as her duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of her, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering her tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Jackie Gayda's growth. Jackie Gayda needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both herself and others. Letting herself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. She may see the qualities that she needs to develop more fully (described above) in her partner. It is important for Jackie Gayda to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Jackie Gayda has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Jackie Gayda back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of her desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
