challenges and difficulties
She is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing herself freely and openly is not easy for Baiul. Oksana Baiul tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of her "performance" is an important task for Oksana.
Oksana Baiul takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Baiul a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Oksana Baiul and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Baiul will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Oksana Baiul 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 Oksana Baiul needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively she is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Oksana stands alone when she does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Oksana Baiul has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that she must be self-reliant and that only she can come up with the answers she needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate her from others, or make Oksana Baiul feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Oksana Baiul calls social "games" do not come naturally to her. Oksana Baiul needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Oksana Baiul has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Baiul 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.
The following are specific activities that will support Oksana Baiul in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Baiul, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Oksana Baiul's path to wholeness involves confronting her dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming herself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Baiul's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Oksana.
