challenges and difficulties
Maurice has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Barrymore.
Maurice may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Maurice Barrymore is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Barrymore wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Maurice Barrymore tends to suppress his feelings and may be somewhat inhibited in love relationships. He may often feel rejected or he may give the impression of rejecting others himself. Perhaps his mother or father found it difficult to express their affection.
Maurice Barrymore has a tendency to feel inadequate, perhaps even unlovable, and he tends to withdraw from others. Consequently, Barrymore may feel lonely and out of touch with everyone, and that he has no support from anyone.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Maurice Barrymore 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 Maurice Barrymore needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Maurice Barrymore copes with stress. Maurice Barrymore also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Maurice Barrymore to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
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 Maurice Barrymore between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Maurice Barrymore 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 Barrymore's task.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Maurice Barrymore back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help himself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Maurice has a tendency to be a martyr.
The following are specific activities that will support Maurice Barrymore in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Barrymore, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Maurice Barrymore should develop faith and confidence both in himself and in a higher power that can guide, nourish, and help him. He needs to expand his willingness to dream and envision better things in life by studying religion, philosophy and other subjects that enable him to acquire a larger, more inclusive view of the world.
Being generous with his time, energy and resources in helping others achieve a better life will in turn benefit Maurice Barrymore.
