challenges and difficulties
Bridges either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Lloyd Bridges may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Lloyd Bridges feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Lloyd Bridges works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
He is likely to have very intense experiences in his emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Lloyd Bridges could be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Lloyd Bridges 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 Lloyd Bridges 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 Lloyd Bridges - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Bridges 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.
Lloyd Bridges 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 Bridges' most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Lloyd Bridges needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is deep within himself, as Lloyd Bridges faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Lloyd Bridges keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
