challenges and difficulties
Maya Angelou has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Angelou is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Maya Angelou takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Maya from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Maya Angelou felt deprived in some manner, whether or not she actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of her needs and feelings may typify her early life, at least as Angelou remembers it. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Maya Angelou needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Maya accomplish this.
Angelou works quietly to get ahead, but may have to work harder than others to gain recognition for her efforts. Reserved and shy, Maya Angelou tends to build a wall between herself and others and she seems to be more receptive to older and mature people.
Maya Angelou has a tendency to be too critical of herself. She may be plagued by feelings of guilt about some past events, leading to further self-doubt. Maya must learn to handle her frustration, depression and discontentment and try to overcome her lack of self-confidence.
She is inclined to be quite reserved and cautious in her relationships with others. But Maya may also have an exaggerated regard for other peoples views and could give them more credence than they are worth.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Maya Angelou 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 Maya Angelou needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Maya Angelou needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Maya's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Angelou's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Maya Angelou to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Maya Angelou is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Maya Angelou needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
It is in her public life and career that Maya Angelou is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Angelou's reputation and standing in her community or professional circle, as well as how Maya Angelou achieves her important life goals and aspirations.
