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 McGrory. Mary McGrory 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 Mary.
She is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with her duty, her public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Mary McGrory understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and she is capable of much self-discipline and patience once she sets her sights on a goal.
But Mary McGrory is very judgmental and hard on herself if she fails to attain success, and she can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize her efforts.
Her physical vitality and mental energy tend to be somewhat low. For this reason Mary McGrory should try to avoid any unnecessary emotional and physical stress and follow good health habits in order to maintain overall resistance to illness.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Mary McGrory 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 Mary McGrory needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Mary McGrory to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Mary McGrory needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Mary directs her attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from McGrory's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Mary McGrory needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Mary McGrory should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
