challenges and difficulties
He is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing himself freely and openly is not easy for Robinson. Jackie Robinson tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of his "performance" is an important task for Jackie.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Jackie Robinson does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Jackie Robinson must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Jackie Robinson seesaws between playing it safe, and doing something unique and original, between self-control and letting loose, between being a responsible adult and a rebellious adolescent, between what Jackie has to or should do and what his spontaneous impulses tell him to do. All of this creates enormous inner tension as well as friction with people in his environment. Jackie Robinson may, for instance, bitterly resent government or authority figures who "crush his individuality", yet ignore his obligations and responsibilities, thus ensuring that they will pursue him. Learning to give each side its due is an ongoing challenge for Robinson.
Jackie tries to keeps his sensuality under control and is likely to suppress the tension he feels in his love relationships. At times he could feel somewhat emotionally inhibited, while at other times Jackie Robinson may have a strong wish to break all moral barriers.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jackie Robinson 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 Robinson needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Jackie Robinson to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Jackie Robinson needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Jackie directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Robinson's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Robinson's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Jackie Robinson needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
