approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sabine's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Sabine Appelmans comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sabine Appelmans - 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 Sabine Appelmans" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sabine a little better. This page describes the disguise Appelmans 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Sabine Appelmans is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Sabine 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 Appelmans' way of dealing with problems.
Sabine Appelmans 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 Appelmans' emotional balance and well-being.
Sabine Appelmans is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Sabine Appelmans probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Appelmans' imagination and fantasy was also very real to Appelmans, 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 Appelmans' sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Appelmans will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Sabine Appelmans overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Appelmans' 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 Sabine through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Appelmans' more rational friends. Sabine Appelmans certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Sabine Appelmans 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 Sabine Appelmans 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.
In significant ways, Appelmans' emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Sabine Appelmans may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Sabine Appelmans is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know her well may be quite surprised at her reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept herself, so that she does not act as if her emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
Sabine Appelmans has a very congenial personality and is at peace and harmony with the world around her. Her personal relationships tend to be very harmonious and Sabine is likely to find great satisfaction and fulfillment in love as well.
A very self-confident personality and the ability to gain the respect of other people will almost assure Sabine Appelmans of a position of leadership. She is likely to be successful and her efforts will be recognized by others.
Sabine Appelmans tends to be somewhat insecure in her relationships with other people and she strives for safety and security in her life. Acquiring possessions and property is important to Sabine, and she has a strong desire to make a distinguished impression on others.
