challenges and difficulties
Taylor is wary of becoming emotionally dependent on others, and may distance herself or deny her needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that she will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Leigh Taylor-Young may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Leigh.
Her childhood or her relationship with her parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Leigh from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Leigh Taylor-Young feels that she was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether she actually was or not. Her early life - at least as Taylor remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of her needs and feelings. 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, Leigh Taylor-Young needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Leigh accomplish this task.
Leigh Taylor-Young strives and struggles a great deal with her ideals or spiritual aspirations. She may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or she may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, she can never quite divorce herself from her idealistic concerns.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Leigh Taylor-Young 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 Leigh Taylor-Young needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Leigh Taylor-Young is apt to shut off the flow of her emotions and ignore her needs and feelings in order to do what she perceives as her duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of her, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
