challenges and difficulties
Jackie Martling has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Martling knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Jackie Martling may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Jackie must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Jackie from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Jackie Martling feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Martling 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, Jackie Martling needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Jackie accomplish this task.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jackie Martling 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 Jackie Martling 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 Jackie Martling - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Martling tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Jackie Martling is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he 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 Martling's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Jackie Martling needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Jackie Martling is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
He is somewhat restless and nervous, but enjoys communicating with people and is constantly confronting others with his new ideas. Jackie has the ability to develop new relationships quickly and he can also be a stimulating force in group activities.
