challenges and difficulties
Fabares doubts her own intelligence and mental capacities, and she may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Shelley 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.
Shelley Fabares takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Fabares a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Shelley Fabares and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Fabares will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Shelley Fabares 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 Shelley Fabares needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Shelley Fabares' path lies in her development as an individual, the discovery of her own strengths and joys, the capacity to express her uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Fabares' instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Shelley Fabares is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, she may believe that striving to do her personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Shelley should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Shelley Fabares can offer the world at large.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Shelley Fabares has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Fabares will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The following are specific activities that will support Shelley Fabares in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Fabares, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Shelley Fabares' path to wholeness involves confronting her dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming herself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Fabares' willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Shelley.
