challenges and difficulties
She is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing herself freely and openly is not easy for Menounos. Maria Menounos tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of her "performance" is an important task for Maria.
Maria Menounos takes both her work and her health very seriously, but she may demand so much of her at work that she compromise her health. Maria can become a workaholic, not so much because she has lofty ambitions, but because she never feels like she has done enough. Maria Menounos is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that she may not enjoy it at all.
Menounos can also get overly involved in self-improvement or her health, and she tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Maria dislikes tense or frustrating situations and has a strong desire to free herself from them. Acting quickly at times, Maria suddenly overcomes her inner inhibitions. Maria Menounos also has the ability to grasp difficult situations correctly and to use them for her advancement.
Around others Menounos is somewhat humble and shy and prefer to be by herself. Maria Menounos tends to limit her relationships with others and associates only with like-minded people. She is inclined to be cool and reserved even toward those she loves.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Maria Menounos 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 Maria Menounos needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively she is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Maria stands alone when she does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Maria Menounos has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that she must be self-reliant and that only she can come up with the answers she needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate her from others, or make Maria Menounos feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Maria Menounos calls social "games" do not come naturally to her. Maria Menounos needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
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 Maria Menounos to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Maria Menounos has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
Maria has an inclination to gossip and spread stories or she could be the subject of gossip herself at times. Her perception of partnership and family relationships tends to be somewhat unrealistic, and Maria Menounos may put up a good front and pretend to have a harmonious life.
