challenges and difficulties
Tucker fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance herself or deny her needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that she will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Sophie Tucker may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Sophie.
Her fears revolve around money and material security, and Sophie Tucker works very hard to ensure that her assets are solid. She may be very conservative, even stingy, with her money because she is afraid there will not be enough. She may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Sophie has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Sophie Tucker needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve her aspirations. Tucker will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Sophie Tucker becomes tense and upset rather easily. She becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In her eagerness to see her inspirations materialize, Tucker is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving her goals. Her occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
She prefers to work alone rather than with other people. Content on her own, Tucker tends to become inhibited when she is with others, especially women. Sophie Tucker may feel that the effort required to be with others is too great and probably not even worth it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Sophie Tucker 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 Sophie Tucker needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Sophie Tucker copes with stress. Sophie Tucker also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Sophie Tucker to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in her work and her relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Tucker's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
The following are specific activities that will support Sophie Tucker in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Tucker, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Sophie Tucker should become a warrior and cultivate a positive, victorious, active approach to life and to any problems she faces. It is in Tucker's best interest to act on her own behalf instead of stalling, waiting or hoping someone else will do it for her. Sophie Tucker needs to assert herself openly and courageously and not to be afraid to make mistakes or stumble; there are bound to be a few trial runs to any new initiative. Sophie needs to foster a healthy fighting spirit, pick herself up, and go! She also should learn to appreciate conflict and confrontation as a means to grow.
