One difficulty for your self-esteem and ability to exploit potential is unease caused by diminished self-confidence. Energy can seep away through self-doubt and a tendency toward unproductive questioning which reduces achievement. Emotionally, you feel unable to evaluate your abilities or creative efforts; they are too close to you, determining your state of well-being. You protect vulnerable emotions and sensitivity and may eventually realize that most of your pain in life comes from relationships. This can include friction with parents (either during childhood or in later life), unsuccessful love affairs and romances, being taken advantage of by unscrupulous colleagues or friends, or disputes in your family home, such as with children. You prefer to think well of everybody, giving them the benefit of any doubt and relying on mutual trust; unfortunately, deception is common. Your evaluation of character can often be misguided or lacking in perception. You may discover a suitable channel for your social concerns by working for people's welfare; a sense of civic responsibility is well-developed, and you may see community activity as the moral duty of a responsible citizen. Certainly, working for social betterment will fulfill you in many ways, and provide reassurance for your self-esteem. You may need to reduce restless feelings that disturb your inner state and relationships with others. Whenever you feel this dissatisfaction, discovering new areas of interest and activity can productively redirect your energies.
