challenges and difficulties
Pio of Pietrelcina 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, Padre Pio 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 Francesco Forgione.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Padre Pio may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Francesco Forgione may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Padre Pio may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
His emotional life is likely to be somewhat strained and he has a tendency toward pessimism. Padre Pio may not feel as close in his relationships to his loved ones as he would like to be, and it could be difficult for Francesco Forgione to give and receive love.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Padre Pio 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 Padre Pio needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Padre Pio's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Pio of Pietrelcina's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Padre Pio is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Francesco Forgione should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Padre Pio can offer the world at large.
It is in his public life and career that Padre Pio is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Pio of Pietrelcina's reputation and standing in his community or professional circle, as well as how Padre Pio achieves his important life goals and aspirations.
Padre Pio has a vivacious and lively manner with a tendency to shock others at times by bluntly blurting out his remarks. Francesco Forgione loves to be with people, but tends to get overly excited when he is with them.
