Dear Vicki,

Thank you so much for your note and handwriting sample. Yes, I do remember analyzing your writing many years ago. Unfortunately, I can’t remember what I told you, so you will have to make the comparisons.

I also remember analyzing your son’s writing. Please give him my regards.

You have very nice handwriting, Vicki. It is neat, legible, and attractive.

Some of your words and lines also fall from left to right. These falling strokes mean that you are dealing with some sadness, pessimism, and discouragement, along with disappointment and unhappiness. As a result you are feeling quite self conscious right now.

These negative feelings seem ironic because you have so many positive characteristics. For example, you are friendly, kind, frank, affectionate, sincere, and generous.

You are also a very bright person, Vicki. You are a penetrating, fast, and intuitive thinker. You are intellectually thirsty with an eagerness to learn new things. You also have a good sense of humor, and a desire for culture and refinement. You have good organizational skills and are sensitive and creative, along with being dignified, practical, and persistent.

You do have a stubborn and defiant streak, Vicki, and have some difficulty with authority. You like having things your way, and I think this may have something to do with your feelings of disappointment.

If your life is not going as well as you had hoped, you may be feeling some sadness as a result. You are a proud, ambitious, dignified lady, Vicki, so failure is not easy for you to accept, and because you are a private person it’s not easy to talk about.

Because you are bright, sincere, and a good person, I would suggest you get some professional assistance to help you feel better about yourself. If this makes sense to you and you would like to pursue some therapeutic interventions, I would be glad to assist you, if you contact me.

Peace and good luck to you and your family.
