challenges and difficulties
Joe Perry 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 Perry knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Joe Perry may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Joe 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.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Joe from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Joe Perry feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Perry remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Joe Perry needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Joe accomplish this task.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Joe Perry 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 Joe Perry needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Perry's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Joe Perry has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is in any involvements he has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Joe Perry is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Joe Perry back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Excessive thinking, rationalizing or talking, the overuse or misuse of Perry's intellectual abilities and the tendency to allow his energy to be dissipated in trivial activities.
