At heart she is quite different from what her exuberant, freewheeling manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest. Although Kim Darby gets restless and like to move around, home is also very important to her, and she craves security and familiarity (as described in more detail below). At times she may feel torn between her craving for the comfortable and familiar versus a taste for the foreign and the unknown. Darby will need to find a place in her life for these two contradictory impulses.
Kim 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 Darby to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Darby 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. Kim likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Kim Darby 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 Kim Darby 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. Kim Darby takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Kim Darby feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Kim Darby needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Kim Darby becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Kim Darby functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Darby often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Kim Darby 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 Darby'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.
Kim Darby invests a tremendous amount of her creative energy into her relationships with others, particularly her marriage or other close partnerships. Kim feels that she needs others in order to be all that she can be, and she is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to promote mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Kim Darby can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of hers.

Kim has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. Her self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit her in an almost magical way. Her optimism and cheerful generosity also win Darby many allies and successes in life.
