challenges and difficulties
Louis has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Leakey.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Louis from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Louis Leakey felt deprived in some manner, whether or not he actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of his needs and feelings may typify his early life, at least as Leakey remembers it. 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, Louis Leakey needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Louis accomplish this.
At times Louis Leakey struggles with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, he may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of his mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Louis Leakey has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if his religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting himself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Louis occasionally.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Louis Leakey 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 Louis Leakey needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Louis stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Louis Leakey has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Louis Leakey feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Louis Leakey calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Louis Leakey needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is deep within himself, as Louis Leakey faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Louis Leakey 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.
