challenges and difficulties
Marie-Josť has difficulty asserting her will and desires directly and openly. She may also suppress her anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in herself are important tasks for Perec.
Marie-Josť Perec has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Marie-Josť limits herself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in herself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Marie-Josť Perec difficult to get to know intimately, as Perec tends to distance herself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Marie-Josť Perec tends to be her own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of herself and harshly criticizing or persecuting herself when she does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in her life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Marie-Josť's belief that she must struggle alone.
She is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Marie-Josť Perec develops her power and inner strength. However, Marie-Josť Perec should not make life harder than it is. She must give herself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that she is only human.
Perec forges ahead diligently, but may have to work harder than others to gain recognition for her efforts. Reserved and shy, Marie-Josť Perec tends to build a wall between herself and others and she seems to be more receptive to older and more mature people.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Marie-Josť Perec 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 Marie-Josť Perec 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 Marie-Josť Perec - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Perec tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Marie-Josť Perec is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she 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 Perec's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Marie-Josť Perec needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in her relationships with others that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Marie-Josť Perec between acting spontaneously and being true to herself versus modifying herself or her behavior to suit others. Marie-Josť Perec seesaws between being inordinately concerned with her self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about her. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Perec's task.
The following are specific activities that will support Marie-Josť Perec in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Perec, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Marie-Josť Perec should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. She may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Perec's activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. She is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Marie-Josť really wants such jobs or not, usually because she has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in her path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Perec's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
Marie-Josť Perec has a very obliging manner and is always in search of new relationships. She is able to identify with people quite easily and probably will make many friends who can be of help to her.
