challenges and difficulties
López fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Mario López may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Mario.
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Mario from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Mario López 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 López 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, Mario López needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Mario accomplish this.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Mario López has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Mario also fears it and hang back. Mario López may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Mario López will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Mario feel a little out of step with others. Mario López takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Mario feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Mario López has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
At times Mario López 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. Mario López 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 Mario occasionally.
He is likely to have very intense experiences in his emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Mario López could be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
Lacking confidence in himself, Mario López has the feeling that his luck has abandoned him. He is inclined to sit and wait for the right opportunities to come along, placing too much emphasis on wishful thinking and is disappointed when nothing happens.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Mario López 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 Mario López needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Mario López has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Mario López needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Mario López needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in his public life and career that Mario López is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact López's reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Mario López achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Mario López back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Mario López's rigid self-control overly restricts his ability to freely express himself or explore possibilities. He is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. He tends to be fearful, judgmental towards himself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside himself. Mario López should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is López's responsibility.
