challenges and difficulties
Jean-Paul Sartre often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Sartre.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Jean-Paul Sartre works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
His vitality tends to be a bit low and Jean-Paul may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, Jean-Paul Sartre is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps his upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in his relationships with his parents.
A deep thinker, Jean-Paul Sartre has good powers of concentration. But Sartre thinks slowly and takes his time making decisions, which is likely to be based on practical and economical methods. Having little to say, Jean-Paul Sartre prefers to talk about serious or sad things.
He is inclined to be quite reserved and cautious in his relationships with others. But Jean-Paul may also have an exaggerated regard for other peoples views and could give them more credence than they are worth.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jean-Paul Sartre 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 Jean-Paul Sartre needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Jean-Paul Sartre copes with stress. Jean-Paul Sartre also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Jean-Paul Sartre to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Jean-Paul Sartre has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Sartre 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 Jean-Paul Sartre back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Jean-Paul Sartre's rigid self-control overly restricts his ability to freely express himself or explore possibilities. He is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. He tends to be fearful, judgmental towards himself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside himself. Jean-Paul Sartre should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Sartre's responsibility.
His conversations with others tend to be lively and productive but could also easily turn into arguments. The subject of Sartre's discussions is likely to be about working on and incorporating educational matters.
