Secretive and inclined to brooding silences, it is difficult for others to really know her inner core, for Lesley Stahl only trusts and opens herself to a select few. Allowing herself to be vulnerable and to relinquish control in relationships is not easy for Stahl.
Lesley has intense, passionate loves and hates and is a jealously loyal and protective friend - or a fearsome foe. Lesley Stahl has a nasty habit of holding onto past hurts, resentments and guilt - and to keep such feelings to herself. It is important for Lesley Stahl to learn to forgive and let go, as well as to express her feelings openly and directly, rather than hiding or repressing them.
She is not content with superficial appearances and is always probing beneath the surface of things for hidden motives. Lesley Stahl has a great deal of emotional depth.
She is likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for her belongings give Lesley Stahl a sense of security and continuity with the past, which is important to her. Antiques or articles with sentimental value from Lesley's past are especially dear to her.
Lesley Stahl may also cling rather tightly to money and possessions, keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing freely with those outside of her immediate circle.
Some rather acute fears of being excluded, rejected, left out in the cold or separated from loved ones can make Lesley Stahl either extremely cautious about getting close to people or clingy toward whoever gives her any warmth or security. Lesley Stahl tends to withhold and clamp down on many of her feelings and craves nurturing and security, perhaps feeling that they are unacceptable or will never be satisfied. Learning to be open and trust others to nurture her is important to her. Her earliest years, especially Stahl's relationships with her mother, will determine whether Lesley Stahl will overcome her fears or retreat behind a mask of self-sufficiency and indifference.
In addition to Lesley's rather introverted, serious or self-contained side, she has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. Lesley Stahl craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make Stahl rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance each other out. Her freer and unpredictable side will now be described.
Her childhood and early home life was in many ways unsettling, and the nurturing Stahl received was erratic and unreliable at best. Lesley Stahl has had to move a lot, or Stahl's family may have been blatantly different from other people so that Lesley was often deemed an outsider or a "weirdo". As an adult, Lesley Stahl may long for "normalcy" while at the same time she balks at any routine, structure, formality or restrictions.
Lesley Stahl often becomes nervous or shaky when emotionally stressed. Developing a regular rhythm and a steady, consistent (if not traditional) way of life would be beneficial to Stahl, both emotionally and physically.
She is open and unconventional in her attitude towards love relationships, romance and sex. She enjoys socializing, bringing people together and having many friends of both sexes. Lesley Stahl values friendship very highly and in fact, she is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Lesley desires an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with her love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to her. The traditional "husband" and "wife" roles do not appeal to Stahl, and she abhors jealousy and possessiveness since she feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Lesley Stahl appreciates relationships in which her love partner allows her plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
A warm, loving and comfortable home is very important to Lesley Stahl and she invests a lot of her energy into beautifying, decorating and creating a lovely home. Also, Lesley shares her affection with the people in her family very generously and having close family ties is a major priority for her. Being at home makes Stahl happy.
Intimate relationships are the arena in which Lesley Stahl explores the depths she is capable of. She could fall intensely and fanatically in love and be obsessive, extraordinarily jealous or deeply involved with her partners. Stahl will experience both heaven and hell in her closest relationships. There is undoubtedly a peculiarly karmic, fated quality to these relationships, which - though difficult - will teach Lesley Stahl things about herself and about love that she could not learn in any other way. Stahl will often enter relationships which she realizes - rationally - will be very difficult, yet she cannot resist them, nonetheless. Lesley Stahl needs not to avoid berating herself for these "bad" choices; instead, she needs to learn what she can from them.
Her attitude could be a bit too optimistic, especially in regards to love relationships. Lesley Stahl loves to day-dream and may have many romantic and erotic imaginations that never materialize. She may have a flair for writing beautiful love poems.
