challenges and difficulties
Jon has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Dough.
Jon Dough has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Jon limits himself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in himself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Jon Dough difficult to get to know intimately, as Dough tends to distance himself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
The side of Jon Dough that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension as a result, and at times Jon finds it hard to relax. Jon Dough may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Dough's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jon Dough 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 Jon Dough needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Jon Dough'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 Dough's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Jon Dough 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 Jon should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Jon Dough can offer the world at large.
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Jon Dough to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Jon Dough has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Jon Dough back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Jon Dough'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. Jon Dough should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Dough's responsibility.
Because of rigid and somewhat unpleasant family relationships, Jon Dough is inclined to seclude himself from others. He may prefer to live in archaic surroundings and may be interested in antiques.
