challenges and difficulties
Nancy Allen 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 Allen knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Nancy Allen may be something of a hypochondriac also. Nancy 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 may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Nancy Allen does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Nancy Allen must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Nancy Allen has for her life are firmly held in check by her sense of reality. At times she may wish for more freedom, but Nancy also fears it and hang back. Nancy Allen may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
Basically shy, Allen tends to be somewhat inhibited in love relationships and may feel uncomfortable or awkward expressing her love for someone. Nancy Allen longs for love relationships and dreams about love, but she is also inclined to torment herself because of a seeming lack of affection.
Nancy Allen may often be coerced into doing things that she does not want to do, leaving her frustrated, irritable and touchy. Nancy could turn hard and unforgiving toward others and may break up some important relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Nancy Allen 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 Nancy Allen needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Nancy Allen - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Allen tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Nancy Allen is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Allen's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Nancy Allen needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Nancy Allen has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Allen will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
