challenges and difficulties
Foster both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to Jon, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Jon Foster 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 Foster.
Jon Foster 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 Foster difficult to get to know intimately, as Foster tends to distance himself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
He is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of his objectives. Jon Foster has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in his way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jon Foster 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 Foster needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Jon Foster needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Jon's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Foster's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Jon Foster to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Jon Foster is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Jon Foster needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Jon Foster has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Foster will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
He is very social and his relationships with others are very warm and expansive. It is essential for Jon's emotional welfare to be surrounded by people and he is an active member of groups or associations he belongs to.
He may have the feeling that he constantly has to surrender to the wishes of other people and he gives the impression of having a passive or indifferent role in his relationships. Jon Foster never takes the initiative and depends on the support of groups he is affiliated with.
Foster is somewhat shy and tends to feel inferior when he is with others. Jon Foster is inclined to establish relationships with weak or sick people and is always willing to help or take care of them.
