challenges and difficulties
Robert has difficulty asserting his will and desires directly and openly. He may also suppress his anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in himself are important tasks for Rodriguez.
Robert may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Robert Rodriguez is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Rodriguez wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
The side of Robert Rodriguez 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 Robert finds it hard to relax. Robert Rodriguez 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. Rodriguez's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
At times Robert Rodriguez struggles with nebulous worries, insecurities and fears that may be difficult to pinpoint. Mostly, he may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of his mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Robert Rodriguez has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if his religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting himself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Robert occasionally.
He prefers to work alone rather than with others. Content on his own, Rodriguez tends to become inhibited when he is with others, especially women. Robert Rodriguez may feel that the effort required to be with others is too great and probably not even worth it.
He is somewhat pessimistic and prone to depression. Robert Rodriguez may feel like withdrawing from everything, with the sense that he is not adequately equipped to handle his life. He may need someone else's point of view to balance his overly pessimistic outlook.
Robert Rodriguez tends to have a pessimistic outlook and he seems to be plagued by deep inner conflicts, which could severely undermine his strength. Self-critical and uncertain about his goals, Robert feels that he cannot live up to his ideals and ends up disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Robert Rodriguez 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 Robert Rodriguez 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 Robert Rodriguez - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Rodriguez tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Robert Rodriguez is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he 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 Rodriguez's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Robert Rodriguez needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Robert Rodriguez has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Rodriguez 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.
Robert should take extra care in his relationships with people, for he could easily end up in the wrong crowd. Robert Rodriguez could be the victim of fraud and falsehood or through association may become an accessory to malicious action.
