challenges and difficulties
Suzanne Cloutier takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Suzanne enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Suzanne Cloutier also fears entrapment in close relationships.
Suzanne Cloutier has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Suzanne limits herself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in herself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Suzanne Cloutier difficult to get to know intimately, as Cloutier tends to distance herself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Suzanne Cloutier will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Suzanne feel a little out of step with others. Suzanne Cloutier takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Suzanne feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Suzanne Cloutier has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Suzanne is inclined to be quite reserved and cautious in her relationships with others, yet she may also have an exaggerated regard for other peoples' views, thereby giving them more credence than they are worth.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Suzanne Cloutier 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 Suzanne Cloutier 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 Suzanne Cloutier copes with stress. Suzanne Cloutier 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 Suzanne Cloutier to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is deep within herself, as Suzanne Cloutier faces her own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of her life that Suzanne Cloutier keeps hidden from public view where she 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.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Suzanne Cloutier back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive anti-authoritarian attitude. Suzanne Cloutier seeks constant (and often purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable people, and individual freedom at any cost.
She is very socially minded and it is easy for Suzanne Cloutier to show her affection. Her family or community probably provided fertile ground for her development. Cloutier may love to show off a little and she thrives on being involved with others in joyful group activities.
