challenges and difficulties
Leslie Caron has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Leslie is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Leslie Caron often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Caron's which may inhibit her a great deal. Leslie Caron must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Caron is generally not a "joiner" and she does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Leslie Caron does participate in a group, she may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or she may simply feel that she does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Leslie Caron better than being with groups of her own peers.
Leslie Caron feels that she must work very hard and struggle against tremendous odds that impede her chances of fulfilling her life's ambitions. Leslie may adopt a very hard, cynical, or nihilistic attitude that will only drag her down further. There are major problems with her father or figures of authority. Leslie Caron may fail simply to spite "them", without realizing that she is primarily hurting herself. If she can overcome her feelings of loneliness, bitterness or isolation, and direct her energies toward constructive endeavors, Caron can be immensely effective because of her tremendous tenacity and potential for achievement.
Leslie Caron becomes tense and upset rather easily. She becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In her eagerness to see her inspirations materialize, Caron is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving her goals. Her occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Leslie Caron 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 Leslie Caron 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 Leslie Caron - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Caron 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.
Leslie Caron 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 Caron's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Leslie Caron 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 relationships with others that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Leslie Caron between acting spontaneously and being true to herself versus modifying herself or her behavior to suit others. Leslie Caron 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 Caron's task.
Leslie Caron thinks of others before she thinks of herself and is always ready to lend a helping hand. She is deeply concerned with the community which she lives in, loves her family and relatives and has a strong need to maintain close relationships with them.
