challenges and difficulties
Rudolph either overvalues or undervalues her possessions and assets. She can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Wilma Rudolph may deny herself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of her labors. She may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Wilma Rudolph feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
Rudolph is generally not a "joiner" and she does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Wilma Rudolph does participate in a group, she may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or she may simply feel that she does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Wilma Rudolph better than being with groups of her own peers.
Her aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Wilma Rudolph pursues her aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and she is willing to takes her time, advancing slowly and steadily on her way towards her goal.
Sometimes Wilma Rudolph underestimates what is possible, and holds herself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Her outlook on life is inclined to be somewhat negative and Wilma Rudolph tries to avoid relationships and social interaction as much as possible. There is a morose side to Wilma's nature that makes her feel that no one cares about her, that life is difficult and perhaps not even worthwhile.
She is quite cool and reserved in matters of love relationships and tends to hold back her inclination for love. Somewhat inhibited in regard to relationships, Wilma Rudolph is inclined to feel that she is better off staying by herself.
Wilma tries to build her life on solid ground, but may find it difficult to move forward, because she always tends to look back. This could result in feelings of inferiority and periodic moods of depression.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Wilma Rudolph instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Wilma Rudolph needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively she is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Wilma stands alone when she does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Wilma Rudolph has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that she must be self-reliant and that only she can come up with the answers she needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate her from others, or make Wilma Rudolph feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Wilma Rudolph calls social "games" do not come naturally to her. Wilma Rudolph needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Rudolph's inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Wilma Rudolph needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
