She is not easily moved by emotional displays and can be curiously detached from her own emotions and those of others. It is almost as if she could turn her feelings on and off at will; Anna should be careful not to leave the switch "off" too often, for she could easily become too impersonal. Family relationships and attachments are not as important to her as they are to most people and Friel often considers her friends closer to her than her blood relatives. Certainly, Friel's sympathy and concern extends much beyond her immediate family. In her personal relationships, Anna Friel insists upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as she chooses. Anna does not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner.
Anna Friel feels comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and she has little taste for convention and tradition.
Anna has strong attachments to her past, the place where she grew up, her heritage, and family traditions. In fact, Anna Friel may be unable to step out of the habits and roles that she learned as a child. Friel's tie to her mother is very strong and Anna Friel also seeks nurturing and protection from her spouse and other family members as well.
She needs love, affection, nurturing and enjoys being pampered - all of which is fine, as long as Anna Friel is willing to give as well as receive the attention and "babying". Anna has a rather childish dependency on loved ones, which can make her cling to them, or be very uncomfortable with any conflict that could conceivably lead to separation. Creating a loving family is certainly a challenge for Anna - one that can be enormously satisfying if she can achieve it, and a source of great sadness if she cannot.
Anna Friel tends to be touchy, defensive and rather territorial, and if she perceives a threat to her family or home or personal safety, she can be quite aggressive. Sometimes Anna feels out of sorts and hostile for no apparent reason, and this is usually due to unexpressed, unresolved anger from the past. Anna Friel also has a desire to lead, to compete, or to be a free agent, that she is not entirely conscious of. It is good for Friel to have benign outlets and ways to let off steam on a regular basis, such as demanding physical work or athletics. Otherwise Anna Friel may be rather hard to live with, even abusive in her relationships.
Although Friel gets hot under the collar rather easily (as mentioned above), she also has a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure, which enable Anna Friel to rein in some of her more aggressive tendencies. This side of her is described below.
Some rather acute fears of being excluded, rejected, left out in the cold or separated from loved ones can make Anna Friel either extremely cautious about getting close to people or clingy toward whoever gives her any warmth or security. Anna Friel tends to withhold and clamp down on many of her feelings and craves nurturing and security, perhaps feeling that they are unacceptable or will never be satisfied. Learning to be open and trust others to nurture her is important to her. Her earliest years, especially Friel's relationships with her mother, will determine whether Anna Friel will overcome her fears or retreat behind a mask of self-sufficiency and indifference.
In addition to Anna's rather introverted, serious or self-contained side, she has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. Anna Friel craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make Friel rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance each other out. Her freer and unpredictable side will now be described.
Anna Friel craves excitement, change and discovery, and cannot tolerate a routine or lifestyle that offers little in the way of surprise or challenge. Excitable, spontaneous and enthusiastic about anything new, she may be perceived by others as being too impulsive, especially in personal relationships. It is not easy for Anna Friel to make or keep commitments, since she does not know how she will be feeling from one day to the next. Emotional freedom is very important to Friel. Her domestic life may be very unstable - but Friel likes it that way.
She is inclined to identify duty and happiness with each other. Self-disciplined and realistic, Anna Friel expects very little. Once she has found her mate, Anna Friel will be faithful, self-sacrificing and strongly attached to her partner.
Her emotional excitability is very strong and Friel tends to be high-strung and impatient. Anna Friel knows what she wants to accomplish, she forges ahead and brooks no interference. Domineering and forceful, it is not easy for Anna Friel to back down gracefully when she is confronted.
Anna Friel has a very rich emotional life and the ability to do the right thing at the right moment. Through an appeal to the feelings, she is able to influence the public; Friel may have the desire to work in some capacity to bring about social improvements.
Sensitive and sentimental, Anna Friel is deeply attached to her family, old friends, familiar places and the past. She is romantic and tender in love relationships, and it is of utmost importance to Friel to remember birthdays, anniversaries, family rituals and other personally significant days. Anna Friel seeks caring, emotional support, and security in her love relationships. Anna likes to be needed, as well as to cherish and protect her loved ones, of whom she is somewhat possessive.
Promoting beauty, the arts, or entertainment can make Anna Friel very happy. Anna wants to contribute something positive and loving to the world at large and she wants to be recognized for her beauty, artistic gifts, or loving generosity. Anna Friel may "marry" her work - that is, being more involved in her career than in her private life. Friel is a natural host or diplomat.
Anna Friel loves to laugh, celebrate, and to enjoy herself with her companions. Emotionally open and easygoing, Anna considers just about anyone a friend or potential friend. Her good humor and friendliness make her quite popular and well-liked. At times, Anna Friel overdoes the festivities, but she rarely regrets this.
Anna Friel tends to suppress her feelings and she approaches other people with great reserve. She may feel lonesome, but unable to bridge the gap between her and others. But once Anna Friel enters a relationship, she will be faithful and steady in her feelings for her partner.
Her personal relationships are very affectionate. Anna enjoys the company of other people and has a harmonious attitude toward them. Anna Friel also has a sense of art and may decorate her surroundings very artistically.
