challenges and difficulties
Roberto Benigni takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Roberto enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Roberto Benigni also fears entrapment in close relationships.
Roberto 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, Roberto Benigni is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Benigni wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by a great deal of caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Roberto Benigni has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Roberto also fears it and holds back. Roberto Benigni may blame practical limitations, some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
Roberto Benigni takes his ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision. Roberto has the ability to acquire true spiritual or imaginative insight, but he can also become so involved in his imaginative, idealistic pursuits that he looses perspective and develops feelings of alienation and isolation.
Roberto Benigni becomes tense and upset rather easily. He becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In his eagerness to see his inspirations materialize, Benigni is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving his goals. His occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
He may frequently feel hindered or oppressed by other people and may suddenly join forces with others in order to overcome difficulties. Roberto Benigni seems to be afraid of his own courage and may find it hard to express his desires.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Roberto Benigni 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 Roberto Benigni needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Roberto Benigni's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Benigni's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Benigni's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Benigni's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Benigni's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Roberto Benigni needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Benigni's unique gifts can benefit others.
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 Roberto Benigni between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Roberto Benigni 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 Benigni's task.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Roberto Benigni back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Staying in relationships with domineering, controlling, abusive people or being manipulative. Roberto sometimes abuses his own power to use others to his own selfish ends.
