challenges and difficulties
Willie has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Nelson.
Willie Nelson takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Willie can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Willie Nelson is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Nelson can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
His faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Willie Nelson has for his life are firmly held in check by his sense of reality. At times he may wish for more freedom, but Willie also fears it and hang back. Willie Nelson may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for his own inhibitions.
Willie Nelson tends to have inner conflicts between his responsibilities and what he would like to do. Nelson may weigh his duties favorably against his desires, making it very difficult for him to be truly happy.
Willie Nelson tends to have a pessimistic outlook and he seems to be plagued by deep inner conflicts, which could severely undermine his strength. Self-critical and uncertain about his goals, Willie feels that he cannot live up to his ideals and end up disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Willie Nelson 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 Willie Nelson needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Nelson's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Willie Nelson has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Willie Nelson to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Willie Nelson has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Willie Nelson back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help himself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Willie has a tendency to be a martyr.
His relationships with others could be rather unstable and unreliable. With a somewhat negative attitude and weak will, Willie Nelson avoids opposition and escapes his responsibilities. In his relationships he is likely to choose people who are asocial.
