challenges and difficulties
Tracy Richman 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 the capacity for joy and play. Tracy Richman 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 Richman's that may inhibit her a great deal. Tracy Richman must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob her of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Tracy Richman takes both her work and her health very seriously, but she may demand so much of herself at work that she compromises her health. Tracy can become a workaholic, not so much because she has lofty ambitions, but because she never feels like she has done enough. Tracy Richman is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that she may not enjoy it at all.
Richman can also get overly involved in self-improvement or her health, and she tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Her aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Tracy Richman pursues her aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and she is willing to take her time, advancing slowly and steadily toward her goal.
Sometimes Tracy Richman underestimates what is possible, and holds herself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Tracy Richman 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 Richman 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 Richman copes with stress. Tracy Richman 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 Richman to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Tracy Richman needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Tracy Richman should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Tracy Richman in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Richman, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Tracy Richman's path to wholeness involves confronting her dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming herself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Richman's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Tracy.
