challenges and difficulties
Jennifer Carpenter has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Carpenter knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Jennifer Carpenter may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Jennifer must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Jennifer Carpenter takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Carpenter a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Jennifer Carpenter and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Carpenter will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
She is inclined to exercise self-control and tries to suppress her inner excitability or irritability. However, Carpenter can be somewhat self-willed and determined to be independent. If Jennifer Carpenter feels that someone is holding her down too much, she may suddenly break up the relationship.
Since she lacks the capacity to adapt, Jennifer Carpenter tends to be rebellious and fight hard against oppression. This could even lead to violent incidents, so Jennifer should try to keep her temper at bay. She may have to work extremely hard and handle a great many responsibilities.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jennifer Carpenter 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 Jennifer Carpenter 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 Jennifer Carpenter copes with stress. Jennifer Carpenter 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 Jennifer Carpenter to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. She may see the qualities that she needs to develop more fully (described above) in her partner. It is important for Jennifer Carpenter to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Jennifer Carpenter has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
The following are specific activities that will support Jennifer Carpenter in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Carpenter, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Jennifer Carpenter should become a warrior and cultivate a positive, victorious, active approach to life and to any problems she faces. It is in Carpenter's best interest to act on her own behalf instead of stalling, waiting or hoping someone else will do it for her. Jennifer Carpenter needs to assert herself openly and courageously and not to be afraid to make mistakes or stumble; there are bound to be a few trial runs to any new initiative. Jennifer needs to foster a healthy fighting spirit, pick herself up, and go! She also should learn to appreciate conflict and confrontation as a means to grow.
