Trusting others and letting them get to know her intimately does not come easily to Theodora, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Theodora Richards 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 Richards.
It may be difficult for Theodora Richards to play spontaneously or just let her hair down, for she tends to inhibit that side of her by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression she is making.
Theodora may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for she wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged and recognized as special in some way. Though she may indeed be outstanding, Theodora Richards also needs to learn to relax and enjoy herself more.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Theodora Richards 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 Theodora Richards needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
