You need to face the music.
Are there things that you suspect about yourself but that you refuse to deal with? It might be that you’re too hard on yourself when you make a mistake, or maybe you’re too understanding when a friend or family member takes advantage of you. You know you should speak up and take action but you don’t, preferring to ignore the issue.
We all have truths that we have trouble admitting to ourselves. There are things that we refuse to acknowledge because they’re too painful or they affect the way we see ourselves. And having them out in the open seems to make them feel even worse.
You may believe that you’ve pushed those hard truths out of your head, but that’s not always the case.
Those things you don’t want to deal with will still pop up from time to time, most often in dreams as if your subconscious is screaming at you, “Pay attention!” Or, you wonder why there seems to be something on the edge of your consciousness that’s bothering you.
It’s challenging to be truthful all the time, especially when it means being honest with ourselves and it’s natural not to have the energy or the ability to deal with every single negative characteristic we possess. We want to be scrupulous about our motivations and intentions, but you can’t be open about something you don’t know exists in the first place.
You may strive to bring your inner demons into the light and face the truth, but if you’re not fully aware of them, it’s near impossible.
Not everybody has the same issues or the same troubling truths, but there are general ones that each individual born under the same zodiac sign share. It can be helpful to know what tends to bother each zodiac sign and get some perspective about your own hard truths.
Here’s what you refuse to admit to yourself and how you can face the truth, based on your zodiac sign.
You won't admit that sometimes you make terrible decisions. It's just that you get so excited about something that you don't always think it through. You're impulsive and impatient and those two qualities can get you in trouble, especially when they cause you to something reckless and irresponsible.
You refuse to admit that you could be wrong. In your world, you're never misinformed, blinded by emotion or even pig-headed. It must be great to always be right, even when you're not and to never feel the need to compromise or apologize.
You won't own the fact that you're a flake. It's not that you're trying to be a jerk, it's just that you tend to over schedule, double-book, and you never allow yourself enough time to do what you want to do. You have trouble being honest with people if you think it's going to hurt them, and yet, standing them with a last minute excuse can be hurtful.
You refuse to face the truth that you can be amazingly clingy. While it's true that you're very open to how you're feeling at any given moment, you're not quite as forthcoming with the fact that you suck at letting go. You hang on long after someone has tried to shake you loose. If you grip someone that tightly when you're together, you'll suffocate them, and the only goal they'll have is how to get themselves out.
What you don't seem to know is that you can be so full of yourself that you come off as arrogant and pretentious. You think you know best in every situation and that everybody else has their head up their butts. You're spectacular but not when you're talking down to people and acting like an asshat.
You don't like to admit that you care (desperately) about what other people think. You're very critical of yourself and you worry that people will think that you're not good enough. But you can't do things just because you think that's what other people want you to do; you should do what will make you happy and fulfilled.
You won't admit that you get down just like everybody else and that sometimes you need to ask for help. You don't need to be happy all the time so people will like you, nor is it a weakness to ask for assistance. The people who care about you don't just love you because you're a robot who doesn't have feelings and is completely self-sufficient — they like you for being the emotional human that you are.
You refuse to see that you can be extremely rigid. If someone doesn't comply to your way of doing or being, you're done with them. You don't believe in second chances and you're not great with forgiveness. Cutting someone out of your life because you caught them in a minor white lie isn't being just, it's being a tyrant.
You have no idea how incredibly self-centered you are. You think just because you think of people and give them gifts that you're selfless, but you only do nice things to get a good reaction and for people to think positively of you. It's not altruistic, it's manipulative.
You won't face the fact that you're lonely. You try to pretend that you're so focused on succeeding that you don't have any time for relationships, but the truth is you're scared you'll be rejected and you're afraid to put yourself out there. You're trying to protect yourself from pain but the pain of isolation is even worse.
You won't admit that sometimes you like to be contrary just to go against what's expected of you or what other people are doing. Controversy for the sake of controversy is kind of pointless. Don't worry — no one is going to take advantage of your good nature; you don't need to buck up just to show you've got some backbone.
You don't like to let on to yourself that you like to exaggerate the truth for a better story. Reality can be so boring, and being 100 percent about the facts isn't your thing. You'd rather put a spin on things to make them more interesting and this is why you're so creative: because you naturally think outside the box.
