challenges and difficulties
Perry 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. Matthew Perry 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 Matthew Perry feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Matthew Perry understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Matthew Perry is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
Matthew Perry has a sense of duty and responsibility, but may find it difficult to make up his mind and come to a decision. Perry is somewhat slow to act, and his need to be fully prepared inclines him to let good opportunities slip away at times.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Matthew Perry 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 Matthew Perry 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 Perry'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.
Matthew Perry 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 relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Matthew Perry has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Perry 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 Matthew Perry back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Excessive thinking, rationalizing or talking, the overuse or misuse of Perry's intellectual abilities and the tendency to allow his energy to be dissipated in trivial activities.
Staying in relationships with domineering, controlling, abusive people or being manipulative. Matthew sometimes abuses his own power to use others to his own selfish ends.
Perry considers the ability to think and speak convincingly as the most powerful instrument one can possess. He always strives for intellectual control in his environment and tends to dominate his relationships. Matthew Perry has a strong desire to be the spokesman in his community.
Matthew has an inclination to gossip and spread stories or he could be the subject of gossip himself at times. His perception of partnership and family relationships tends to be somewhat unrealistic, and Matthew Perry may put up a good front and pretend to have a harmonious life.
