challenges and difficulties
Jacques has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Chirac.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Jacques Chirac does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Jacques Chirac 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.
Basically shy, Jacques may become a bit inhibited when talking with other people. Jacques Chirac tends to withdraw from others and likes to live a humble, quiet live in seclusion. He may get involved with a group of a secretive nature, although Chirac is not one to join groups in general.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jacques Chirac 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 Jacques Chirac needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Chirac's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Jacques Chirac has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Jacques Chirac between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Jacques Chirac seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Chirac's task.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Jacques Chirac back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help himself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Jacques has a tendency to be a martyr.
Chirac makes a big impression on everyone he meets and has the ability to attract many people. Others find Jacques Chirac very fascinating and he is likely to see himself as their model or example in groups or associations.
Chirac is able to achieve good cooperation with people, and others see him as a welcome comrade. Jacques likes to work hand in hand with everyone and has an excellent sense of team-work.
