challenges and difficulties
Karyn has difficulty asserting her will and desires directly and openly. She may also suppress her anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in herself are important tasks for Kusama.
She is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with her duty, her public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Karyn Kusama understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and she is capable of much self-discipline and patience once she sets her sights on a goal.
But Karyn Kusama is very judgmental and hard on herself if she fails to attain success, and she can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize her efforts.
Her vitality tends to be a bit low and Karyn may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, Karyn Kusama is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps her upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in her relationship with her parents.
Karyn Kusama tends to be somewhat gloomy and may feel that life is difficult and that her will is blocked in some way. Karyn may find it hard to make decisions and to concentrate on her goals, which she may consider unworthy.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Karyn Kusama 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 Karyn Kusama 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 Karyn Kusama - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Kusama 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.
Karyn Kusama 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 Kusama's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Karyn Kusama 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 her public life and career that Karyn Kusama is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Kusama's reputation and standing in her community or professional circle, as well as how Karyn Kusama achieves her important life goals and aspirations.
The following are specific activities that will support Karyn Kusama in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Kusama, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Karyn Kusama should become a warrior and cultivate a positive, victorious, active approach to life and to any problems she faces. It is in Kusama's best interest to act on her own behalf instead of stalling, waiting or hoping someone else will do it for her. Karyn Kusama needs to assert herself openly and courageously and not to be afraid to make mistakes or stumble; there are bound to be a few trial runs to any new initiative. Karyn needs to foster a healthy fighting spirit, pick herself up, and go! She also should learn to appreciate conflict and confrontation as a means to grow.
Karyn Kusama should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. She may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Kusama's activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. She is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Karyn really wants such jobs or not, usually because she has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in her path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Kusama's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
Karyn Kusama tends to associate with weak or negative people and is inclined to find most of her relationships rather unfulfilling. Feeling like an outsider, Kusama gets the impression that others try to restrain her.
