challenges and difficulties
Rachel has difficulty asserting her will and desires directly and openly. She may also suppress her anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in herself are important tasks for Griffiths.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Rachel. She strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for her.
On another level entirely, Rachel Griffiths is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Griffiths wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
The side of Rachel Griffiths that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with her urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension due to this, and at times Rachel finds it hard to relax. Rachel Griffiths may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on herself, in an attempt to strictly control her "wild" impulses. Griffiths' task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in her life.
At times Rachel Griffiths struggles with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, she may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of her mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Rachel Griffiths has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if her religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting herself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Rachel occasionally.
Rachel Griffiths tends to be her own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of herself and harshly criticizing or persecuting herself when she does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in her life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Rachel's belief that she must struggle alone.
She is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Rachel Griffiths develops her power and inner strength. However, Rachel Griffiths should not make life harder than it is. She must give herself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that she is only human.
Rachel Griffiths tends to have a pessimistic outlook and she seems to be plagued by deep inner conflicts, which could severely undermine her strength. Self-critical and uncertain about her goals, Rachel feels that she cannot live up to her ideals and end up disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Rachel Griffiths 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 Rachel Griffiths 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 Rachel Griffiths - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Griffiths 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.
Rachel Griffiths 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 Griffiths' most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Rachel Griffiths 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 relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Rachel Griffiths has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Griffiths 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.
The following are specific activities that will support Rachel Griffiths in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Griffiths, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Rachel Griffiths should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. She may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Griffiths' activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. She is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Rachel really wants such jobs or not, usually because she has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in her path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Griffiths' task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
She may have the feeling that she constantly has to surrender to the wishes of other people and she gives the impression of having a passive or indifferent role in her relationships. Rachel Griffiths never takes the initiative and depends on the support of groups she is affiliated with.
