challenges and difficulties
Finch 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, Peter Finch 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 Peter.
Peter Finch takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Finch 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 Peter Finch and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Finch will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
