challenges and difficulties
Lori Black both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know her intimately does not come easily to Lorax, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Lori Black is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Lori Black.
Lori Black has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Lorax limits herself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in herself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Lori Black difficult to get to know intimately, as Lori Black tends to distance herself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
She is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on the one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, Lori Black may periodically withdraw from situations and people.
Since she lacks the capacity to adapt, Lori Black tends to be rebellious and fight hard against oppression. This could even lead to violent incidents, so Lorax should try to keep her temper at bay. She may have to work extremely hard and handle a great many responsibilities.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Lori Black 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 Lori Black needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Lori Black has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Lori Black needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, she has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, she may encourage others to depend on her emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Lori Black needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Lori Black is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Lori Black's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Lori Black back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of her 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.
Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive anti-authoritarian attitude. Lori Black seeks constant (and often purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable people, and individual freedom at any cost.
Lori Black has a vivacious and lively manner with a tendency to shock others at times by blurting out blunt comments. Lorax loves to be with people, but tends to get overly excited when she is with them.
