challenges and difficulties
Tommy Lee has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Bass.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Tommy Lee works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
The side of Tommy Lee that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension due to this, and at times Tommy Lee finds it hard to relax. Tommy Lee may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Bass' task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Tommy Lee 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 Tommy Lee needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Tommy Lee's path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Bass' instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Tommy Lee is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Tommy Lee should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Tommy Lee can offer the world at large.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Tommy Lee has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Bass 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 Tommy Lee back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Tommy Lee's rigid self-control overly restricts his ability to freely express himself or explore possibilities. He is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. He tends to be fearful, judgmental towards himself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside himself. Tommy Lee should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Bass' responsibility.
