Marion Zimmer Bradley
She is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others her feelings. Though she may love and care for someone a great deal, Marion Zimmer Bradley rarely expresses her feelings openly and freely. Very often Bradley's love for someone is expressed by her wish to help her, do something tangible to benefit her or serve her in some way.
It is also difficult for her to receive warmth, affection or appreciation, for she often feels that she does not really deserve it or that "they do not really mean it". Bradley may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than she feels.
A deeply ingrained critical attitude often makes Marion difficult to live with. Marion Zimmer Bradley needs to learn to be gentler and less of a perfectionist with others and with herself.

Feelings of loneliness, extreme shyness and/or the fear of rejection plague Marion Zimmer Bradley and may well inhibit her from expressing warmth and affection in an open way. Denying herself pleasure, comfort, and "nice things" due to feelings of unworthiness can also limit the joy Marion allows herself. Heartache and a loss of love in her life - perhaps while quite young - will serve to either close her heart to love or cause her to deeply cherish the friends and love she receives from others. The saying that "true love is hard to find" is certainly true for Marion Zimmer Bradley, but she will value it tremendously when it does come into her life.
The feeling that "there is not enough for me" may cause her to be very frugal and stingy with money as well.
When it comes to love relationships, Bradley is likely to feel pulled in several directions at once. In addition to her desire for depth and security in her relationships, Marion Zimmer Bradley has an impulsive side and a need for a lot of variety and excitement, as discussed in the following paragraphs.
