Tanya Boyd often senses a conflict between her discriminating, analytical, critical side (described in the previous chapter), and her tolerant, forgiving side (described below). Consequently, Boyd tends to seesaw - at times criticizing and correcting others while at others, forgiving them for the most egregious errors and inadequacies. Tanya Boyd should strive to find a balance between clarity and justice on the one hand, and mercy and compassion on the other.
Boyd's urge to serve, help and improve the life of others is strong, and she is quite willing to make personal sacrifices to do so.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Tanya Boyd as anything in the outer world, though she may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting her inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, she has a rich inner life, though Boyd may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Tanya Boyd usually keeps to herself.
Tanya shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. She is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Tanya has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Tanya Boyd sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. She is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Boyd tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of her kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon her. Tanya has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not her strong points.
She is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and she tries to avoid open conflict. Boyd will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Boyd tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Tanya Boyd does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Her gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for she possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Tanya Boyd has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
Her faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change her life for the better. She also tends to become so detached from her immediate environment that she lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Boyd more than it bothers her.
Tanya Boyd invests a tremendous amount of her creative energy into her relationships with others, particularly her marriage or other close partnerships. Tanya feels that she needs others in order to be all that she can be, and she is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to promote mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Tanya Boyd can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of hers.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Tanya Boyd between her conscious attitudes and aspirations and her deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Tanya may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with her subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in her body may well be a signal that Tanya Boyd is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Tanya Boyd will learn to accept and express these two different sides of herself. Should she fail to do so, Boyd is likely to be drawn into many relationships with people who reflect her denied or repressed qualities and seem to make her life difficult. (Also read chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
She is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. Her good will and friendliness win her many allies. Tanya Boyd also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Tanya expects the best, and usually gets it.
However she also has a more somber side, which keeps Boyd's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Tanya Boyd tends to seesaw between her faith, vision and high aspirations, and her caution and realism (or fear!). She cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and she accepts the need for hard work. Her skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
She may have had a demanding and perfectionist or absent father. In any case, a lack of support and approval, a great deal of responsibility at an early age and an underlying feeling that she can never quite measure up may hold Boyd back. While she may encounter a great deal of adversity and struggle alone through many of life's trials, this makes Tanya Boyd tough and determined. However, Boyd should beware of becoming cynical, too hard on herself, and too demanding and critical of others.
Tanya Boyd probably has great intellectual ability and curiosity. Tanya never seem to run out of ideas and always welcomes the study of new subjects, the more abstract the better. But she also has the basic sense to translate abstract ideas into practical reality.
Tanya Boyd has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and she likes to share her intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
