challenges and difficulties
Tracy Pollan has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Tracy is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Tracy Pollan often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Pollan's which may inhibit her a great deal. Tracy Pollan must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Tracy from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Tracy Pollan felt deprived in some manner, whether or not she actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of her needs and feelings may typify her early life, at least as Pollan remembers it. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Tracy Pollan needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Tracy accomplish this.
The side of Tracy Pollan that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with her 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 Tracy finds it hard to relax. Tracy Pollan may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on herself, in an attempt to strictly control her "wild" impulses. Pollan's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in her life.
She is inclined to exercise self-control and tries to suppress her inner excitability or irritability. Pollan can be somewhat self-willed, though, and strive to be independent. If Tracy Pollan feels that someone is holding her down too much, she may suddenly break up the relationship.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Tracy Pollan 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 Tracy Pollan 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 Tracy Pollan copes with stress. Tracy Pollan 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 Tracy Pollan to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is deep within herself, as Tracy Pollan faces her own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of her life that Tracy Pollan 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.
