challenges and difficulties
Blair doubts her own intelligence and mental capacities, and she may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Selma is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for her.
Her attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Selma Blair 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, Selma 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 Selma Blair may feel that life or God will punish her if she does not watch her steps!
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Selma Blair 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 Selma Blair needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Selma Blair has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Selma Blair needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, she has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, she may encourage others to depend on her emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Selma Blair needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Blair's inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Selma Blair needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Selma Blair back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Excessive thinking, rationalizing or talking, the overuse or misuse of Blair's intellectual abilities and the tendency to allow her energy to be dissipated in trivial activities.
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
