challenges and difficulties
Mae Whitman has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Mae is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack the capacity for joy and play. Mae Whitman 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 Whitman's that may inhibit her a great deal. Mae Whitman must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob her of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Her childhood or her relationship with her parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Mae from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Mae Whitman feels that she was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether she actually was or not. Her early life - at least as Whitman remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of her needs and feelings. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Mae Whitman needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Mae accomplish this task.
She is serious and sincere about her interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Mae wants her inspirations to become reality and she does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Mae Whitman becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and her occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Mae Whitman has a tendency to feel inadequate, perhaps even unlovable, and she tends to withdraw from others. Consequently, Whitman may feel lonely and out of touch with everyone, and that she has no support from anyone.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Mae Whitman 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 Mae Whitman needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Whitman's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Mae Whitman has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. She may see the qualities that she needs to develop more fully (described above) in her partner. It is important for Mae Whitman to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Mae Whitman has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
Mae Whitman often tends to feel sad and may sympathize with people who are "in the same boat". She is likely to cling to old things and wants to pass on her traditions.
Mae likes to be constantly on the go and tends to have a hectic family life. She knows how to eliminate competition, but should guard against rising to the top in her position at the expense of other people.
