challenges and difficulties
Vince Sorrenti has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Vince is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Vince Sorrenti 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 Sorrenti's that may inhibit him a great deal. Vince Sorrenti must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Vince Sorrenti takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of himself at work that he compromises his health. Vince can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Vince Sorrenti is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Sorrenti can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Vince Sorrenti pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and he is willing to take his time, advancing slowly and steadily toward his goal.
Sometimes Vince Sorrenti underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Very cautious and reserved, Vince Sorrenti may find it difficult to express himself. He is a bit inhibited around others and does not seem to derive much cooperation from them, which causes Vince to be disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Vince Sorrenti 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 Vince Sorrenti 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 Vince Sorrenti copes with stress. Vince Sorrenti 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 Vince Sorrenti to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Vince Sorrenti between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Vince Sorrenti seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Sorrenti's task.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Vince Sorrenti back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Excessive thinking, rationalizing or talking, the overuse or misuse of Sorrenti's intellectual abilities and the tendency to allow his energy to be dissipated in trivial activities.
The following are specific activities that will support Vince Sorrenti in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Sorrenti, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Vince Sorrenti's path to wholeness involves confronting his dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming himself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Sorrenti'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 Vince.
