challenges and difficulties
Nora Roberts 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 Roberts knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Nora Roberts may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Nora 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 attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Nora Roberts may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to her. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Nora may tenaciously cling to her grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
Her overall outlook on life is serious, and Nora Roberts may feel that life or God will punish her if she does not watch her step!
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by a great deal of caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Nora Roberts has for her life are firmly held in check by her sense of reality. At times she may wish for more freedom, but Nora also fears it and holds back. Nora Roberts may blame practical limitations, some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
She is subject to rash decisions and impulsive actions that may have sudden, unexpected consequences and undesirable results. As she lacks the capacity to adapt, Nora Roberts may encounter considerable tension in her relationships and is likely to have disputes or even violent fights with others.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Nora Roberts 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 Nora Roberts needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Roberts' deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Nora Roberts has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Nora Roberts is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Roberts' 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 Nora Roberts back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Excessive thinking, rationalizing or talking, the overuse or misuse of Roberts' intellectual abilities and the tendency to allow her energy to be dissipated in trivial activities.
Nora Roberts' rigid self-control overly restricts her ability to freely express herself or explore possibilities. She is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. She tends to be fearful, judgmental towards herself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside herself. Nora Roberts should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Roberts' responsibility.
She is reserved and somewhat conservative in presenting her viewpoints to others and prefers a philosophical discussion to small talk. Nora Roberts is quite selective in her choice of subjects and only wants to study what is really of interest to her.
