challenges and difficulties
Janis Paige takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Janis enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Janis Paige also fears entrapment in close relationships.
She may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Janis Paige does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Janis Paige must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Janis Paige will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Janis feel a little out of step with others. Janis Paige takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Janis feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Janis Paige has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
The side of Janis Paige that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with her urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension as a result, and at times Janis finds it hard to relax. Janis Paige may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on herself, in an attempt to strictly control her "wild" impulses. Paige's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in her life.
She is inclined to be somewhat timid and afraid to start something on her own, preferring that someone else tell her what to do. Janis Paige can easily be deterred from pursuing her goals, which makes her advancement in life rather slow.
Basically shy, Janis may become a bit inhibited when talking with other people. Janis Paige tends to withdraw from others and likes to live a humble, quiet life in seclusion. She may get involved with a group of a secretive nature, although Paige is not generally one to join groups.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Janis Paige instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Janis Paige needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Janis Paige copes with stress. Janis Paige also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Janis Paige to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Janis Paige 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.
The following are specific activities that will support Janis Paige in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Paige, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Janis Paige should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put herself "out there", be seen and shine. Janis needs to be willing to take on a leading role. She needs to be a hero - a protagonist in her own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities she possesses. Doing creative work that she is proud of - anything that comes from Paige's heart and bears the stamp of Paige's individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than she is a way for Janis Paige to grow and become more whole herself.
Janis Paige seems to be a loner, rather serious and quiet. Perhaps she is burdened by family conditions that weigh her down. Janis prefers to associate with older or more authoritative people and is happier in a subordinate position.
