challenges and difficulties
Val Kilmer has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Val is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Val Kilmer 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 Kilmer's which may inhibit him a great deal. Val Kilmer 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.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Val Kilmer does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Val Kilmer must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
He is inclined to be somewhat withdrawn and has a hard time discussing important matters with his family and close relationships. A serious and deep thinker, Val Kilmer would like to explain his views to others, but has a difficult time finding the right words.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Val Kilmer 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 Val Kilmer needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Val Kilmer copes with stress. Val Kilmer also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Val Kilmer to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Val Kilmer has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Kilmer 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.
