challenges and difficulties
Melina Perez has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Perez knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Melina Perez may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Melina must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
She is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Melina Perez tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Perez withholds her thoughts and opinions until she has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Melina's silence discomforts others.
Her mental concentration is very good but her breadth of understanding may not be.
Sometimes circumstances appear to be working against Melina, and she may have to confront major challenges. Melina Perez will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, thereby rendering her hard and cold hearted in her decision-making.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Melina Perez 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 Melina Perez needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Melina Perez copes with stress. Melina Perez also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Melina Perez to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Melina Perez is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Perez's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Melina Perez back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being excessively egocentric or proud, needing personal recognition and applause, wanting to be center stage all the time, needing to be important and special.
Melina Perez tends to pick her friends and associates very carefully and is always on the lookout for responsible and congenial people. This enables Melina Perez to feel secure with her colleagues and enjoy good relationships with them.
