challenges and difficulties
He is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing himself freely and openly is not easy for Spillane. Mickey Spillane tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of his "performance" is an important task for Mickey.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Mickey. 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, Mickey Spillane is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Spillane wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Mickey Spillane takes his ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision. Mickey has the ability to acquire true spiritual or imaginative insight, but he can also become so involved in his imaginative, idealistic pursuits that he looses perspective and develops feelings of alienation and isolation.
Because of his inner reserve and basic shyness, Mickey Spillane appears to lack adaptability and is a bit inhibited in dealing with other people. His approach is somewhat serious and it is difficult for Mickey to face the public.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Mickey Spillane 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 Mickey Spillane needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Mickey Spillane to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Mickey Spillane needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Mickey directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Spillane's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
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 Mickey Spillane between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Mickey Spillane 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 Spillane's task.
