challenges and difficulties
Paula Poundstone has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Paula is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Paula Poundstone often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Poundstone's which may inhibit her a great deal. Paula Poundstone must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Her attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Paula Poundstone 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, Paula 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 Paula Poundstone may feel that life or God will punish her if she does not watch her steps!
Her outlook on life is inclined to be somewhat negative and Paula Poundstone tries to avoid relationships and social interaction as much as possible. There is a morose side to Paula's nature that makes her feel that no one cares about her, that life is difficult and perhaps not even worthwhile.
Her emotional life is likely to be somewhat strained and she has a tendency toward pessimism. Paula Poundstone may not feel as close in her relationships to her loved ones as she would like to be, and it could be difficult for Paula to give and receive love.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Paula Poundstone 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 Paula Poundstone needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Paula Poundstone copes with stress. Paula Poundstone also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Paula Poundstone to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in her work and her relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Poundstone's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
Paula Poundstone tends to be fascinated by new and obscure things and may be strongly attracted to the occult. She may contribute to spontaneous forming of groups and could gain spiritual enlightenment together with other people.
