Lara Flynn Boyle
Although Lara Flynn Boyle appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), she is also a "warrior". Boyle sometimes feels torn between these two facets of her character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Lara Flynn Boyle often think that she is a "softy", but later find out that she is strong willed and pursues her goals aggressively.
She is a person who thrives on challenge, and she often feels that she must battle her way through life, relying on no one and nothing but her own strength, intelligence and courage. Lara Flynn Boyle believes in being totally honest, true to herself and her own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Boyle's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Lara Flynn Boyle craves the freedom to do things in her own way, and she works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not her style. Lara likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Lara Flynn Boyle loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then she is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for her. She is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though she may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Lara Flynn Boyle also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Boyle, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Lara Flynn Boyle believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Lara Flynn Boyle hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting her own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for her.
She is basically aggressive in her attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. She is often so fired up about her own projects or goals that she inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Boyle's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Lara Flynn Boyle to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Lara Flynn Boyle would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Lara Flynn Boyle to do so.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Boyle. Lara Flynn Boyle has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Lara Flynn Boyle may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Lara Flynn Boyle tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Lara Flynn Boyle has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Boyle occasionally gamble, splurge, or overextend herself in ways that may be quite at odds with her usual way of doing things. Exaggerating her accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up her own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Lara Flynn Boyle also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable her to recover from the negative consequences of her excesses, and to learn from them.
If she follows her true nature, her life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Lara Flynn Boyle cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Lara finds it difficult to conform. Her offbeat interests and tastes lead Boyle to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Lara Flynn Boyle has a very creative, inventive streak.
She is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. She is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. Her spiritual values color Lara's whole perspective and approach to life. She is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
Lara Flynn Boyle has a harmonious balance between her body, soul and spirit. She enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form her own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. She may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
