challenges and difficulties
She is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing herself freely and openly is not easy for Bush. Laura Bush tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of her "performance" is an important task for Laura.
Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Laura from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Laura Bush felt deprived in some manner, whether or not she actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of her needs and feelings may typify her early life, at least as Bush remembers it. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Laura Bush needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Laura accomplish this.
Laura has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Laura Bush needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve her aspirations. Bush will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
She is suspicious of groups, crowds, and social organizations. Bush is quick to pick up on social charades and insincerity and avoids the limelight and glamour. Laura Bush is direct and to the point in speech and manner, stubborn and inflexible, and often unwilling to communicate her innermost feelings and thoughts.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Laura Bush 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 Laura Bush needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Laura Bush needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Laura's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Bush's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Laura Bush to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Laura Bush is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Laura Bush needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
It is in her relationships with others that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Laura Bush between acting spontaneously and being true to herself versus modifying herself or her behavior to suit others. Laura Bush seesaws between being inordinately concerned with her self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about her. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Bush's task.
