Mary Welsh Hemingway
Her apparent gentleness and noncompetitive stance toward life (described in the previous chapter) may be very deceiving because at heart she is a "warrior". Mary Welsh Hemingway may feel at odds with herself, sometimes being very passive or benevolent, and at other times, very assertive and concerned primarily with herself. Both qualities are intrinsic to Mary's nature.
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. Mary Welsh Hemingway 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 Mary Welsh's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Mary Welsh Hemingway 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. Mary likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Mary Welsh Hemingway 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, Mary Welsh Hemingway also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Mary Welsh, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Mary Welsh Hemingway believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Mary Welsh Hemingway 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 Mary Welsh's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Mary Welsh Hemingway to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Mary Welsh Hemingway would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Mary Welsh Hemingway to do so.
Mary Welsh Hemingway has a clear sense of her own self and she therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who she is and what she wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Mary Welsh can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but she competes and often clash with other strong individuals.
