challenges and difficulties
He is very self-conscious and has a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing himself freely and openly is not easy for Whiteman. Paul Whiteman tends to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of his "performance" is an important task for Paul.
Paul Whiteman takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Whiteman a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Paul Whiteman and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Whiteman will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Paul Whiteman strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
When he is with others, Paul Whiteman may often suddenly become inhibited. He is inclined to be afraid of confrontations and probably will avoid group activities as much as possible.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Paul Whiteman 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 Paul Whiteman needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Paul Whiteman needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Paul's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Whiteman's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Paul Whiteman to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Paul Whiteman is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Paul Whiteman needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in trying to strike a balance between Whiteman's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Paul Whiteman needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
