challenges and difficulties
Sissy Spacek has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Spacek knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Sissy Spacek may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Sissy must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
She may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Sissy Spacek does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Sissy Spacek 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.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Sissy Spacek 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 Sissy Spacek needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Sissy Spacek - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Spacek tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Sissy Spacek is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Spacek's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Sissy Spacek needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
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 Sissy Spacek to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Sissy Spacek has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Sissy Spacek back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help herself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Sissy has a tendency to be a martyr.
Spacek cooperates well with others and has the ability to give and receive stimulating suggestions. Sissy Spacek is always receptive to new ideas and ready for spontaneous group efforts. She seems to have instant recall and is likely to act just as quickly.
