Your Existing Situation
Easily affected by her environment and readily moved by the emotions of others. Seeks congenial relationships and an occupation which will promote them.
Your Stress Sources
Feels that life has far more to offer and that there are still important things to be achieved--that life must be experienced to the fullest. As a result, she pursues her objectives with a fierce intensity that will not let go of things. Becomes deeply involved and runs the risk of being unable to view things with sufficient objectivity, or calmly enough; is therefore in danger of becoming agitated and of exhausting her nervous energy. Cannot leave things alone and feels she can only be at peace when she has finally reached her goal.

Your Restrained Characteristics
Egocentric and therefore quick to take offense, leaving her rather isolated in her attachments.

Circumstances are forcing her to compromise, to restrain her demands and hopes, and to forgo for the time being some of the things she wants.

Trying to calm down and unwind after a period of over-agitation which has left her listless and devoid of energy. In need of peace and quiet; becomes irritable if this is denied her.

Your Desired Objective
Seeks freedom from problems and a secure state of physical ease in which to relax and recover.

Your Actual Problem
The fear that she might be prevented from achieving the things she wants increases her need for security and freedom from conflict. Is therefore seeking stability and an environment in which she can relax.

My Take On It-

Selling about 10 head of horses to good homes for cash would sure relieve a LOT of the stress!

From Epi_lj's Journal


If you were to ever completely run out of clothing, say, your clothes were stolen while you were lounging naked in the backyard or something, how would you get more?


This actually happened to a character in a Robert Peck story... I think it is A Day No Pigs Would Die ... (Or maybe Soup ... don't get old -- your memory starts to STINK!)

The little boy sees a cow in trouble and pulls something out of her throat. Now, somehow (I've forgotten) he ends up overhaul-less (which is ALL he had) so he ends up sneaking around, going into a church basement where there will soon be a rummage sale, and re-outfits himself there.

Funny, funny scene.

What I'd do?

1) My "back yard" is visible from the highway... so no way would I be out there naked. (I can't really see myself "lounging" comfortably anywhere naked...) Perhaps, I could be showering and a tornado took the other 7/8 of the trailer off to Oz or something... so, you open the shower door and... OOPS! because the whole county has congregated to "help" with the emergency...

I'd opt for staying in the shower until someone brought me something...

Or, without an audience, I think I'd hit the pick-up truck, drive it down the driveway into the area between the trees, get into the old house, and find some of the discarded, way too small, clothes that would cover SOMETHING...

If the rest of the items in the trailer were still there, a black plastic trash bag with a head hole cut in in on top, and one with two leg holes cut on bottom, and hold them together in the middle. (or maybe use the pinch together type of clothes pins...

(Smaller people might only need one bag.)
