Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Salvatore.
Salvatore DiMasi has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything he does. Caution and realism are his virtues though Salvatore limits himself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in himself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find Salvatore DiMasi difficult to get to know intimately, as DiMasi tends to distance himself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
His upbringing may have been either too demanding or somewhat lacks. Salvatore DiMasi resists any attempt to restrict his freedom and has the ability to apply extraordinary efforts to overcome any inhibitions or difficulties that he may have.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Salvatore DiMasi 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 Salvatore DiMasi needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Salvatore DiMasi is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of him, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering his tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Salvatore DiMasi's growth. Salvatore DiMasi needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both himself and others. Letting himself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is deep within himself, as Salvatore DiMasi faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Salvatore DiMasi keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
