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 Bailey. Pearl Bailey 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 Pearl.
Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Pearl from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Pearl Bailey felt deprived in some manner, whether or not she actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of her needs and feelings may typify her early life, at least as Bailey remembers it. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Pearl Bailey needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Pearl accomplish this.
Pearl Bailey takes her ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision. Pearl has the ability to acquire true spiritual or imaginative insight, but she can also become so involved in her imaginative, idealistic pursuits that she looses perspective and develops feelings of alienation and isolation.
Pearl Bailey strongly rebels against any restrictions and may have the desire to break away, over-throwing all thought of responsibility. On the other hand, limitations in her live also could suddenly pass away, leaving Bailey free to do her own thing.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Pearl Bailey 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 Pearl Bailey needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Pearl Bailey to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Pearl Bailey needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Pearl directs her attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Bailey's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Pearl Bailey has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Bailey 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.
Pearl Bailey thinks of others before she thinks of herself and is always ready to lend a helping hand. She is deeply concerned with the community which she lives in, loves her family and relatives and has a strong need to maintain close relationships with them.
