challenges and difficulties
Damon either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Matt Damon may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Matt Damon feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Matt Damon tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Damon withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Matt's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Matt Damon has a tendency to be too critical of himself. He may be plagued by feelings of guilt about some past events, leading to further self-doubt. Matt must learn to handle his frustration, depression and discontentment and try to overcome his lack of self-confidence.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Matt Damon 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 Matt Damon needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Damon's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Matt Damon has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Matt Damon between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Matt Damon seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Damon's task.
