challenges and difficulties
Sade has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Sade is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack the capacity for joy and play. Sade often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Sade Adu's that may inhibit her a great deal. Sade must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob her of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Her attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Sade may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to her. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Sade may tenaciously cling to her grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
Her overall outlook on life is serious, and Sade may feel that life or God will punish her if she does not watch her step!
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Sade instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Sade needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively she is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Sade stands alone when she does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Sade has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that she must be self-reliant and that only she can come up with the answers she needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate her from others, or make Sade feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Sade calls social "games" do not come naturally to her. Sade needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. She may see the qualities that she needs to develop more fully (described above) in her partner. It is important for Sade to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Sade has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Sade back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of her desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
Sade has an inner need to share her experiences with others and she talks to her friends and acquaintances in a very open manner. Socially minded, Sade likes to cultivate close relationships, especially with women.
