approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ashley's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ashley Cole comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ashley Cole - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Ashley Cole" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ashley a little better. This page describes the disguise Cole wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Ashley Cole is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Ashley tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Cole's way of dealing with problems.
Ashley Cole may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Cole's emotional balance and well-being.
Ashley Cole is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Ashley Cole probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Cole's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Cole, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Cole's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Cole will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Ashley Cole overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Cole's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Ashley through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Cole's more rational friends. Ashley Cole certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Ashley Cole has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Ashley Cole to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Ashley Cole has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Ashley Cole often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
Ashley has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with his winning ways, is apt to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Ashley Cole is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Cole must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
Ashley Cole appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Cole infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Ashley Cole does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
