challenges and difficulties
Righton both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to James, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. James Righton is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Righton.
He may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if James Righton does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. James Righton 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.
He is suspicious of groups, crowds, and social organizations. Righton is quick to pick up on social charades and insincerity and avoids the limelight and glamour. James Righton is direct and to the point in speech and manner, stubborn and inflexible, and often unwilling to communicate his innermost feelings and thoughts.
His physical vitality and mental energy tend to be somewhat low. For this reason James Righton should try to avoid any unnecessary emotional and physical stress and maintain good health habits in order to enhance his resistance to illness.
He is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on the one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, James Righton may periodically withdraw from situations and people.
Basically shy, Righton tends to be somewhat inhibited in love relationships and may feel uncomfortable or awkward expressing his love for someone. James Righton longs for love relationships and dreams about love, but is also inclined to torment himself because of a seeming lack of affection.
James Righton may often be coerced into doing things that he does not want to do, leaving him frustrated, irritable and touchy. James could turn hard and unforgiving toward others and may break up some important relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which James Righton 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 James Righton needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
James Righton needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either James' quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Righton's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable James Righton to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, James Righton is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. James Righton needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where James Righton has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Righton will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The specific habits which are likely to hold James Righton 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. James has a tendency to be a martyr.
