challenges and difficulties
Lewis both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Jerry, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Jerry Lewis 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 Lewis.
It may be difficult for Jerry Lewis to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Jerry may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Jerry Lewis also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
Jerry Lewis 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.
Jerry wants to go his own way and tends to withdraw into himself. He prefers to be alone and tends to cut himself off from other people. Jerry Lewis could be a bit too serious and conservative.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jerry Lewis 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 Jerry Lewis needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Jerry Lewis 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 Jerry Lewis' growth. Jerry Lewis 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 his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Jerry Lewis between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Jerry Lewis seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Lewis' task.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Jerry Lewis back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
