challenges and difficulties
Child doubts her own intelligence and mental capacities, and she may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Julia is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for her.
She may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Julia Child does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Julia Child must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Julia Child tends to seesaw between hope, optimism, and faith versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. She needs to overcome impatience and restlessness in order to achieve her dreams and desires for a better life.
Julia Child tends to be somewhat gloomy and may feel that life is difficult and that her will is blocked in some way. Julia could find it hard to make decisions and to concentrate on her goals and may consider them not worthwhile.
Julia should take care not to trust others too blindly. Some of her friends or associates may be untruthful and try to deceive her, resulting in great disappointments or even losses for Child.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Julia Child instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Julia Child needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Julia Child - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Child tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Julia Child is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Child's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Julia Child needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Julia Child 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 Julia Child back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of her desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
She is very social minded and it is easy for Julia Child to show her affection. Her family or community probably provided good possibilities for her development. Child may love to show off a little and she thrives on being involved with others in joyful group activities.
