challenges and difficulties
Karl Abraham often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may sense both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for Abraham.
Karl Abraham has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Karl limits himself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in himself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Karl Abraham difficult to get to know intimately, as Abraham tends to distance himself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
The side of Karl Abraham 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 Karl finds it hard to relax. Karl Abraham 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. Abraham's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
He is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on the one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, Karl Abraham may periodically withdraw from situations and people.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Karl Abraham 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 Karl Abraham 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 Abraham'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.
Karl Abraham 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 his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Karl Abraham between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Karl Abraham seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Abraham's task.
He is very socially minded and it is easy for Karl Abraham to show his affection. His family or community probably provided fertile ground for his development. Abraham may love to show off a little and he thrives on being involved with others in joyful group activities.
Karl Abraham is not in the least bit selfish and he has the ability to share the joy he feels with other people. Karl seems to have a gift for getting more reserved people to open up, teaching them how to give and receive love and affection.
