The direction Walter Schirra 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 Walter Schirra copes with stress. Walter Schirra also has trouble setting limits and saying no.

It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
