challenges and difficulties
Jake Gyllenhaal takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Jake enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Jake Gyllenhaal also fears entrapment in close relationships.
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Jake Gyllenhaal tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Gyllenhaal withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Jake's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Jake Gyllenhaal pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Jake Gyllenhaal underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jake Gyllenhaal 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 Jake Gyllenhaal needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Jake Gyllenhaal's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Gyllenhaal's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Jake Gyllenhaal is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Jake should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Jake Gyllenhaal can offer the world at large.
It is deep within himself, as Jake Gyllenhaal faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Jake Gyllenhaal keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
