challenges and difficulties
Jules Massenet has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Jules is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Jules Massenet often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Massenet's which may inhibit him a great deal. Jules Massenet must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Massenet is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Jules Massenet does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Jules Massenet better than being with groups of his own peers.
Jules Massenet tends to be somewhat insecure and uncertain about his direction of life. Frequently plagued by doubt and fear, he is inclined to worry a lot. Because Massenet lacks the confidence to fight back, he may allow himself to become the victim of other people.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jules Massenet 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 Jules Massenet needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Jules Massenet has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Jules Massenet needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Jules Massenet needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is deep within himself, as Jules Massenet faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Jules Massenet keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
The following are specific activities that will support Jules Massenet in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Massenet, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Jules Massenet should develop faith and confidence both in himself and in a higher power that can guide, nourish, and help him. He needs to expand his willingness to dream and envision better things in life by studying religion, philosophy and other subjects that enable him to acquire a larger, more inclusive view of the world.
Being generous with his time, energy and resources in helping others achieve a better life will in turn benefit Jules Massenet.
