challenges and difficulties
Savalas both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Telly, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Telly Savalas is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Savalas.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Telly Savalas understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Telly Savalas is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
Telly Savalas has a tendency to think on the dark side, is somewhat gloomy and touchy and easily disappointed. He may find it hard to keeps his attention on the real world and could become obsessed with strange ideas and fanciful beliefs.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Telly Savalas instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Telly Savalas needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Telly Savalas copes with stress. Telly Savalas also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Telly Savalas to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Telly Savalas has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Savalas 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 specific habits which are likely to hold Telly Savalas back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in his life.
