challenges and difficulties
Mena Suvari 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 Suvari knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Mena Suvari may be something of a hypochondriac also. Mena 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.
Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Mena from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Mena Suvari 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 Suvari 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, Mena Suvari needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Mena accomplish this.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Mena Suvari 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 Mena Suvari 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 Mena Suvari copes with stress. Mena Suvari 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 Mena Suvari to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Suvari's inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Mena Suvari needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The following are specific activities that will support Mena Suvari in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Suvari, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Mena Suvari should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. She may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Suvari's activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. She is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Mena really wants such jobs or not, usually because she has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in her path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Suvari's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
Mena should use extra care in her relationships with people, for she could easily end up in the wrong crowd. Mena Suvari could be the victim of fraud and falsehood or through association may become an accessory to malicious action.
