challenges and difficulties
Rob has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Lowe.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Rob Lowe 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, Rob 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 Rob Lowe may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Rob Lowe 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 Rob Lowe needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Rob Lowe is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of him, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering his tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Rob Lowe's growth. Rob Lowe needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both himself and others. Letting himself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is deep within himself, as Rob Lowe faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Rob Lowe keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
Lowe is somewhat shy and tends to feel inferior when he is with others. Rob Lowe is inclined to establish relationships with weak or sick people and is always willing to help or take care of them.
