challenges and difficulties
Gravina either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Pasquale Gravina may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Pasquale Gravina feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
Pasquale Gravina has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Pasquale limits himself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in himself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness.

Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Gravina's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature.

It is deep within himself, as Pasquale Gravina faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Pasquale Gravina keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
