challenges and difficulties
Vladimir Putin takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Vladimir enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Vladimir Putin also fears entrapment in close relationships.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Vladimir Putin does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. Vladimir Putin 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.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Vladimir Putin has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Vladimir also fears it and hang back. Vladimir Putin may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
Vladimir Putin takes his ideals and dreams very seriously and goes through periods of fervent dedication to a lofty ideal or vision. Vladimir has the ability to acquire true spiritual or imaginative insight, but he can also become so involved in his imaginative, idealistic pursuits that he looses perspective and develops feelings of alienation and isolation.
Vladimir Putin becomes tense and upset rather easily. He becomes irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes. In his eagerness to see his inspirations materialize, Putin is inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in favor of achieving his goals. His occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Vladimir Putin has a serious outlook on life and a tendency to dwell on his own flaws as well as those of everyone else. Putin could be rather reserved with people and may find it difficult to express himself, giving a more negative impression than he intended.
His physical vitality and mental energy tend to be somewhat low. For this reason Vladimir Putin should try to avoid any unnecessary emotional and physical stress and follow good health habits in order to maintain overall resistance to illness.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Vladimir Putin 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 Vladimir Putin needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Vladimir Putin's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Putin's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Putin's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Putin's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Putin's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Vladimir Putin needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Putin's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Vladimir Putin is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Putin's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Vladimir Putin back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Staying in relationships with domineering, controlling, abusive people or being manipulative. Vladimir sometimes abuses his own power to use others to his own selfish ends.
