challenges and difficulties
Marilyn has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Manson.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Marilyn Manson may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Marilyn may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Marilyn Manson may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
Marilyn Manson has a sense of duty and responsibility, but may find it difficult to make up his mind and come to a decision. Manson is somewhat slow to act, and his need to be fully prepared inclines him to let good opportunities slip away at times.
He is subject to rash decisions and impulsive actions that may have sudden, unexpected consequences and undesirable results. Not very adaptable, Marilyn Manson could have considerable tension in his relationships and is likely to have disputes or even violent fights with others.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Marilyn Manson 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 Marilyn Manson 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 Marilyn Manson - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Manson tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Marilyn Manson is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he 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 Manson's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Marilyn Manson needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Marilyn Manson has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Manson will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Marilyn Manson back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Marilyn Manson tends to over-rely on luck or grace, living for tomorrow and gambling. Marilyn is overconfident and tends to overextend himself and take on more than is humanly possible. Marilyn is often dogmatic about his philosophy of life or religious beliefs.
Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive anti-authoritarian attitude. Marilyn Manson seeks constant (and often purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable people, and individual freedom at any cost.
He may have the feeling that he constantly has to surrender to the wishes of other people and he gives the impression of having a passive or indifferent role in his relationships. Marilyn Manson never takes the initiative and depends on the support of groups he is affiliated with.
He is gay and cheerful in the company of others and happy to be with them. Marilyn Manson is fond of telling jokes and is likely to entertain everyone. His relationships with others are inclined to be for a common purpose.
