challenges and difficulties
Robin Williams has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Williams knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Robin Williams may be something of a hypochondriac also. Robin must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Williams 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 Robin Williams 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 Robin Williams better than being with groups of his own peers.
Robin Williams tends to have inner conflicts between his responsibilities and what he would like to do. Williams may weigh his duties favorably against his desires, making it very difficult for him to be truly happy.
He is inclined to be somewhat withdrawn and has a hard time discussing important matters with his family and close relationships. A serious and deep thinker, Robin Williams would like to explain his views to others, but has a difficult time finding the right words.
Basically shy, Williams tends to be somewhat inhibited in love relationships and may feel uncomfortable or awkward expressing his love for someone. Robin Williams longs for love relationships and dreams about love, but he is also inclined to torment himself because of a seeming lack of affection.
Somewhat inhibited in initiating relationships with others, Robin Williams may prefer to be by himself. Robin could feels that he does not fit in very well with others and as a result may have difficulties in team-work with groups or associations.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Robin Williams 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 Robin Williams needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Williams' deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Robin Williams has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Robin Williams should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Robin Williams back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in his life.
The following are specific activities that will support Robin Williams in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Williams, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Robin Williams should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. He needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with his family or a community that can support him and give him a sense of safety and belonging.
Robin Williams should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Robin Williams has to learn to trust his own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. He needs to care for himself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Robin Williams' best interest to take all that is good and helpful from his past and use it in a new way. (If he is so inclined, Robin may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
He is reserved and somewhat conservative in presenting his viewpoints to others and prefers a philosophical discussion rather than small talk. Robin Williams is quite selective in his choice of subjects and only wants to study what is really of interest to him.
