Philippe de Gaulle
challenges and difficulties
Philippe de Gaulle takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Philippe enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Philippe de Gaulle also fears entrapment in close relationships.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Philippe de Gaulle may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Philippe may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Philippe de Gaulle may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
Once he decides what he wants to do, Philippe de Gaulle will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Philippe feel a little out of step with others. Philippe de Gaulle takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Philippe feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Philippe de Gaulle has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
The side of Philippe de Gaulle that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension as a result, and at times Philippe finds it hard to relax. Philippe de Gaulle may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. de Gaulle's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
His ambition and desire for power may be somewhat out of proportion and de Gaulle can be quite ruthless when faced with potential obstacles and difficulties. Philippe de Gaulle must learn to control his temper and be willing to compromise.
He is a bit skeptical, somewhat irritable, and others may find Philippe de Gaulle quarrelsome or nagging. His nervousness seems to stem from his tendency to over-work himself, and de Gaulle should try not to make more demands on others than they are able to handle.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Philippe de Gaulle 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 Philippe de Gaulle needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Philippe stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Philippe de Gaulle has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Philippe de Gaulle feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Philippe de Gaulle calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Philippe de Gaulle needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Philippe de Gaulle is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Philippe de Gaulle needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to de Gaulle.
The following are specific activities that will support Philippe de Gaulle in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to de Gaulle, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Philippe de Gaulle should develop faith and confidence both in himself and in a higher power that can guide, nourish, and help him. He needs to expand his willingness to dream and envision better things in life by studying religion, philosophy and other subjects that enable him to acquire a larger, more inclusive view of the world.
Being generous with his time, energy and resources in helping others achieve a better life will in turn benefit Philippe de Gaulle.
