Although Sheehan may seem quite poised, even-tempered, balanced and harmonious (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is actually rather moody and emotional. Inside, she is much more subjective and biased in her attitudes than her fair-minded, reasonable demeanor may imply.
Cindy has powerful emotional attachments to the past, her family, her childhood, places she associates with safety and security, and her beginnings. It is very important to Sheehan to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Sheehan tends to cling to whatever is dear to her - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
She is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Cindy likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Cindy Sheehan has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of her life centers on her home. She is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Cindy Sheehan than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for her to judge situations fairly and objectively because her personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Cindy Sheehan takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Cindy Sheehan feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Cindy Sheehan needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Cindy Sheehan becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Cindy Sheehan functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Sheehan often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Cindy Sheehan also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Her compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Sheehan's strong points. Her faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Sheehan.
