challenges and difficulties
Clarke fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance himself or deny his needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that he will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Michael Clarke may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Michael.

Michael Clarke needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his 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 Michael's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Clarke's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Michael Clarke to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
