If Jed Elliott really wants to improve and transform himself, the first step is to become aware of the weaknesses which may be holding him back and preventing his evolution: – his insatiable appetites – his stubbornness – his grimness his reluctance to change
Jed Elliott may experience discord in relationships. Although Jed Elliott is friendly and outgoing and commits Jed Elliott to friendships and partnerships, Jed Elliott often finds it difficult to balance Jed Elliott’s own needs, desires, and goals with the objective reality of others and their individual desires and needs.
To understand and overcome this problem, Jed Elliott should accept the idea that every relationship follows more or less the same general scheme: a base of intimacy and an accomplishment or purpose apart from the relationship itself. If Jed Elliott succeeds in defining, through discussion and communication, what sort of intimate relationship Jed Elliott and Jed Elliott’s partners want to maintain and what accomplishment or purpose they hope to achieve, many conflicts will be avoided.
