challenges and difficulties
Polly Bergen has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Polly is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack the capacity for joy and play. Polly Bergen 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 Bergen's that may inhibit her a great deal. Polly Bergen must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob her of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Polly Bergen takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Bergen a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Polly Bergen and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Bergen will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Polly Bergen tends to seesaw between hope, optimism and faith versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. She needs to overcome impatience and restlessness in order to achieve her dreams and desires for a better life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Polly Bergen 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 Polly Bergen needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Polly Bergen - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Bergen tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Polly Bergen is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Bergen's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Polly Bergen needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Polly Bergen is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
