challenges and difficulties
Lalla Ward has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Ward knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Lalla Ward may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Lalla must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Lalla Ward has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Lalla limits herself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in herself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Lalla Ward difficult to get to know intimately, as Ward tends to distance herself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Because she is somewhat inhibited when initiating relationships with others, Lalla Ward may prefer to be by herself. Lalla may feel that she does not fit in very well with others and as a result, may have difficulties with team-work.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Lalla Ward 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 Lalla Ward 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 Ward's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Lalla Ward has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in her work and her relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Ward's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
