approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Trish's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Trish Stratus comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Trish Stratus - 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 Trish Stratus" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Trish a little better. This page describes the disguise Stratus 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Trish Stratus is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Trish 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 Stratus' way of dealing with problems.
Trish Stratus 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 Stratus' emotional balance and well-being.
Trish Stratus is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Trish Stratus probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Stratus' imagination and fantasy was also very real to Stratus, 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 Stratus' sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Stratus will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Trish Stratus overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Stratus' 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 Trish through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Stratus' more rational friends. Trish Stratus certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Trish Stratus 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 Trish Stratus 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.
Trish Stratus is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around her, and at times she can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Trish Stratus tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person she is with the most.
Trish has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with her winning ways, is apt to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Trish Stratus is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Stratus must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
She may find it difficult to get ahead because Trish lacks the vitality to do so. Trish Stratus tends to wait for better conditions and has the desire to accomplish a lot without straining herself too much. Quite often, though, her plans just seem to hang in the air.
