challenges and difficulties
Liev has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Schreiber.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Liev from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Liev Schreiber feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Schreiber remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Liev Schreiber needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Liev accomplish this task.
He is inclined to exercise self-control and tries to suppress his inner excitability or irritability. However, Schreiber can be somewhat self-willed and determined to be independent. If Liev Schreiber feels that someone is holding him down too much, he may suddenly break up the relationship.
He is likely to have very intense experiences in his emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Liev Schreiber may be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
His emotional life is likely to be somewhat strained and he has a tendency toward pessimism. Liev Schreiber may not feel as close in his relationships to his loved ones as he would like to, and Liev may find it difficult to give and receive love.
Because he lacks self-confidence, Liev Schreiber has the feeling that his luck has abandoned him. He is inclined to sit and wait for the right opportunities to come along, place too much emphasis on wishful thinking, and then get disappointed when nothing happens.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Liev Schreiber instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Liev Schreiber 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 Liev Schreiber - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Schreiber tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Liev Schreiber is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he 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 Schreiber's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Liev Schreiber needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Liev Schreiber should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Liev Schreiber back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of his desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
