challenges and difficulties
Jawaharlal Nehru has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Nehru knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Jawaharlal Nehru may be something of a hypochondriac also. Jawaharlal must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Jawaharlal Nehru understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Jawaharlal Nehru is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
Jawaharlal Nehru strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Jawaharlal Nehru will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Jawaharlal feel a little out of step with others. Jawaharlal Nehru 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 Jawaharlal feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Jawaharlal Nehru has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Around others Nehru is somewhat humble and shy and prefer to be by himself. Jawaharlal Nehru tends to limit his relationships with others and associates only with like-minded people. He is inclined to be cool and reserved even toward those he loves.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jawaharlal Nehru 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 Jawaharlal Nehru needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Jawaharlal Nehru is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of him, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering his tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Jawaharlal Nehru's growth. Jawaharlal Nehru needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both himself and others. Letting himself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Jawaharlal Nehru has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Nehru 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 Jawaharlal Nehru back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Jawaharlal Nehru tends to over-rely on luck or grace, living for tomorrow and gambling. Jawaharlal is overconfident and tends to overextend himself and take on more than is humanly possible. Jawaharlal is often dogmatic about his philosophy of life or religious beliefs.
