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 Cotillard. Marion Cotillard 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 Marion.
Marion may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. She strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for her.
On another level entirely, Marion Cotillard is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Cotillard wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Marion Cotillard becomes tense and upset rather easily. She becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In her eagerness to see her inspirations materialize, Cotillard is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving her goals. Her occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Marion Cotillard 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 Marion Cotillard needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
She is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on her path, but when under stress Marion Cotillard becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what she has, she is apt to ignore the subtle signals she receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Marion Cotillard needs to learn the limits of her ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for her. Cotillard also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Marion Cotillard tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is deep within herself, as Marion Cotillard faces her own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of her life that Marion Cotillard keeps hidden from public view where she is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
Cotillard is able to cooperate with people harmoniously, and others see her as a welcome comrade. Marion likes to work hand-in-hand with everyone and has excellent teamwork ability.
