approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Mary's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Mary Welsh Hemingway comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Mary Welsh Hemingway - her real motivation, which describes the kind of person she is at heart and where her true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Mary Welsh Hemingway" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Mary a little better. This page describes the disguise Mary Welsh wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Mary Welsh Hemingway is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Mary tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Mary Welsh's way of dealing with problems.
Mary Welsh Hemingway may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Mary Welsh's emotional balance and well-being.
Mary Welsh Hemingway is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Mary Welsh Hemingway probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Mary Welsh's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Mary Welsh, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Mary Welsh's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Mary Welsh will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Mary Welsh Hemingway overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Mary Welsh's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Mary through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Mary Welsh's more rational friends. Mary Welsh Hemingway certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Mary Welsh Hemingway has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Mary Welsh Hemingway to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
She is mentally active and restless and she likes to talk, communicate, and exchange ideas with others. Mary Welsh Hemingway expresses herself well, and is suited to activities that involve presenting ideas to other people, such as teaching and sales.
Mary Welsh Hemingway appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in her manner. She is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Mary Welsh is unreliable.
Her attitude towards life is governed by her feelings and Mary Welsh Hemingway tends to seek cordial understanding with others. Mary has the ability to perceive other peoples' spiritual needs, and trusting her judgment, they are likely to come to Mary Welsh for advice.
