challenges and difficulties
Williams either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Tennessee Williams may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Tennessee Williams feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Tennessee Williams tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Williams withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Tennessee's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Around others Williams is somewhat humble and shy and prefer to be by himself. Tennessee Williams tends to limit his relationships with others and associates only with like-minded people. He is inclined to be cool and reserved even toward those he loves.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Tennessee Williams 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 Tennessee Williams needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Tennessee Williams benefits by becoming more aware of the rhythm of the seasons and the natural world, learning to slow down and allow life to unfold in its own time. Nurturing a garden, a child, or some other living, growing thing gives Tennessee Williams a sense of inner balance.
Tennessee Williams has a tendency to be deeply suspicious, to not take anything at face value and to see hidden agendas and dark motives even where none exist! Life does not have to be a constant conflict... Tennessee needs to learn to accept things as they are.
Williams also needs to develop patience, peace and stability by grounding himself in his daily work and behaving consistently and reliably towards others.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Tennessee Williams is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Williams' relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Tennessee Williams back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:

The following are specific activities that will support Tennessee Williams in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Williams, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Tennessee Williams should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. He may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Williams' activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. He is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Tennessee really wants such jobs or not, usually because he has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in his path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Williams' task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
