challenges and difficulties
Liotta both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to Ray, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Ray Liotta is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Liotta.
Liotta is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Ray Liotta does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Ray Liotta better than being with groups of his own peers.
He may feel inhibited in his relationships with others and give the impression of being unapproachable and wanting to keep his distance. Ray Liotta thinks about his feelings for a long time before he expresses them to anyone and he tends to hide his inner self.
He is subject to rash decisions and impulsive actions that may have sudden, unexpected consequences and undesirable results. As he lacks the capacity to adapt, Ray Liotta may encounter considerable tension in his relationships and is likely to have disputes or even violent fights with others.
Ray wants to go his own way and tends to withdraw into himself. He prefers to be alone and tends to cut himself off from other people. Ray Liotta may be a bit too serious and conservative.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ray Liotta 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 Ray Liotta needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Ray Liotta has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Ray Liotta needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Ray Liotta needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Ray Liotta between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Ray Liotta seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Liotta's task.
