challenges and difficulties
Catherine Labouré takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Saint Catherine enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Catherine Labouré also fears entrapment in close relationships.
She may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Catherine Labouré does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Catherine Labouré must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
She is serious and sincere about her interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Saint Catherine wants her inspirations to become reality and she does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Catherine Labouré becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and her occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Although Catherine Labouré is generally happy, at times she could become somewhat inhibited and because of this, she may occasionally let good opportunities slip by. Although she is interested in people, Saint Catherine Labouré also tends to periodically seek seclusion.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Catherine Labouré 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 Catherine Labouré needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Catherine Labouré to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Catherine Labouré needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Saint Catherine directs her attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Saint Catherine Labouré's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Catherine Labouré needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Catherine Labouré should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
