The Practical Companion
Sometimes there are situations in life where you need someone with a clear focus on essentials. Someone calm. Someone who functions and acts. Someone sharp. Without too much emphasis on oneself.
Hedda is that friend. She doesn’t get caught up into speculations or intentions. She doesn’t procrastinate. She wants to achieve a useful and clear objective. She neither depends on praise, nor criticism. Hedda is firm and doesn’t get lost in details.
Besides all this practicality a friend should also be kind and warm. Hedda remains friendly; despite her well grounded sense of reality. She is confident but not taking up the whole room. Exactly that makes her the friend who you can take with you to many occasions.
