approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sarah's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Sarah Brightman comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sarah Brightman - 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 Sarah Brightman" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sarah a little better. This page describes the disguise Brightman wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Sarah Brightman will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Sarah has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Sarah Brightman very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Brightman is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Sarah Brightman will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Brightman's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Sarah Brightman appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Brightman is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Sarah possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Sarah Brightman - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Sarah Brightman does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Sarah.
Others see Sarah Brightman as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Brightman shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Sarah Brightman usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Brightman projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that she is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Sarah Brightman generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to her, and it may seem that she Sarah somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Sarah Brightman emanates.
In significant ways, Brightman's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Sarah Brightman may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Sarah Brightman 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.
