Serious and responsible, she tries to carry the world on her shoulders and rarely lets others know that she needs help and support. Grace Metalious denies or ignores her own emotional needs and feels that others will not accept her if she appears "weak". She is especially uncomfortable with emotional dependency, and tells herself and others (even children) not to be a "baby". Grace Metalious needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time, and to be gentler with her "childish" emotional needs and wants. To others, she may appear to be rather hard-nosed and tough, with a businesslike attitude toward their personal concerns and feelings. Actually, no one is a truer friend. Her feelings and loyalties run deep, but she often does not let people know how much she cares. Grace Metalious also sometimes needs to learn to relax, enjoy herself, and play.
Grace Metalious often makes decisions solely for emotional or personal reasons, because something "feels right" or because she has always done it a certain way and is uncomfortable acting otherwise. Even when Metalious thinks she is being rational, her prejudices, intuitions and feelings influence her thoughts a great deal. Grace is comfortable talking about feelings and personal subjects, and sharing confidences, which enables others to express their own inner feelings with her as well. Grace Metalious has good psychological insight into others.
Her intimate and close personal relationships are often intense, highly-charged and difficult, as they trigger deep emotional responses in Grace Metalious that have more to do with unsatisfied hungers and unmet childhood needs than with the present situation. She may feel like a voracious, bottomless pit when it comes to nurturing and emotional reassurance, and Metalious' neediness often drives others away. When Grace Metalious does let herself feel close to another human being, painful, long-buried feelings bubble to the surface as do - perhaps - grief at the losses she suffered or anger at the neglect or hurt she endured. She may also reenact these situations in her present day relationships, in an unconscious effort to resolve and heal old issues. Metalious will do a lot of cleansing if she can listen to what her feelings are telling her. If not, Grace Metalious will simply have a tumultuous, passionate and stormy emotional life.

She is serious and finds it difficult to enjoy herself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. Grace Metalious rarely does something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious.

Though Metalious craves love and affection, intimacy is difficult for her. She may become romantically involved with people who do not value her or treat her well.
