challenges and difficulties
Carter 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 Jimmy, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Jimmy Carter 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 Carter.
Jimmy Carter has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Jimmy limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Jimmy Carter difficult to get to know intimately, as Carter tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
He is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, Jimmy Carter may withdraw from situations and people periodically.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jimmy Carter 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 Jimmy Carter needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Jimmy Carter's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Carter's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Jimmy Carter is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Jimmy should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Jimmy Carter can offer the world at large.
It is in his public life and career that Jimmy Carter is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Carter's reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Jimmy Carter achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Jimmy Carter 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.
The following are specific activities that will support Jimmy Carter in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Carter, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Jimmy Carter has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. He needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Jimmy Carter has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.
Jimmy Carter should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up his psychic channels. Meditation that develops Carter's intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through his own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Jimmy's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
Jimmy has an inclination to gossip and spread stories or he could be the subject of gossip himself at times. His perception of partnership and family relationships tends to be somewhat unrealistic, and Jimmy Carter may put up a good front and pretend to have a harmonious life.
