Harsh, but true.
There are things we wish we could all tell the zodiac signs, but it's not always that easy.
Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to be honest with someone you love, but you weren't sure if what you wanted to say was going to be too harsh? And I don't mean telling your best friend that her foundation it's a little too light, even though that is important.
I mean wanting to tell someone that something they always do — a part of their personality — is a little too much sometimes.
Being honest is hard. You don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but the longer you hold something in, the worse it sounds when you finally tell them.
If it's your best friend, she might not be hurt if you try telling her that she can be a little too emotional sometimes, but it can still be a shock to her.
You're the person who is always supposed to be there to help her back no matter what, just like she's the one who has your back. But when you tell her something she might not want to hear, it can feel like a betrayal.
This is why it's important to learn how to be honest without being straight up rude; just think about what you would want your best friend to say to you.
That said, there are still some things that we all need to hear, whether we like it or not.
Whether you don't know how to let things go or you have a weird thing about not being alone, it's important that these things need to be said.
I don't know about you, though, but I'm not going to be the first one to start exposing people. So, if you're anything like me, just read below to find out what it is your zodiac sign needs to hear, even if your friends won't tell you.
You might learn something new about yourself.
Aries has it all, period. Friends, popularity, happiness – if you can name it, she’s got it.
This is partly what makes Aries so fun to be around because really, she’s the only friend who can get you into the VIP section at a club and an unlimited supply of champagne, all without paying a cent.
That said, Aries is never really satisfied with everything she has, which is why she often looks for a better deal.
In reality, she needs to learn how to appreciate what she has (including friends and family) before she loses it all.
No one is more stubborn than Taurus, which often gets her into serious trouble.
Everyone already understands that she doesn’t want to betray her own instinct by asking for help, but girl, it’s okay to admit you need it sometimes.
Maybe she thinks people will think less of her if she lets down her guard, or maybe she thinks she’ll lose her reputation as the one who always knows what she wants, but Taurus of all the signs should know that it doesn’t matter what others think.
If people could build walls around themselves, Gemini’s would be the tallest and have the most barbed wire around it.
For some reason, Gemini thinks that it’s better to always keep her guard up until she’s comfortable enough to be vulnerable around someone new.
Gemini really needs to stop letting the fear of getting hurt prevent her from being nice.
It’s not just romantic relationships that suffer when she’s cold, it’s ALL of them.
The only thing being cold does is gets you one step closer to being unhappy and alone.
Cancer understands the spectrum of emotion better than any of the signs, which is why she is always running around trying to make others feel better.
What she doesn’t know is that just like her, everyone else can take care of themselves without her help.
That said, Cancer doesn’t always know that it’s okay to take a step back from the craziness of others’ lives and focus on herself.
If her friends and family could say this without upsetting her, they would let her know that it’s okay to be selfish and care for herself.
Leo spends much of her time being confident and the center of attention that she often doesn’t take a step back and think about her true self.
A lot of who she is can be chalked up to being someone everyone loves and admires.
What she most needs to hear is that it’s perfectly okay to be insecure and sensitive at times.
Leo gets caught up in the glamor and drama of being the center of attention that she pushes away feelings that should really be confronted.
If she practices letting herself be vulnerable, she’ll be a much stronger person.
Virgo is the brains of the zodiac, meaning she is and always will be in control.
Whether she’s in control of a situation, herself, or the people around her, she feels so much better when she knows that everything is going smoothly because of her.
That said, having a control complex makes her seem tightly wound, which only pushes friends and family away.
Virgo should learn how to let go of being in control because honestly, there will always be something that is out of her hands.
Libra is all about fairness and diplomacy, so much so that she would rather take care of someone else’s needs before her own.
We all know that she only does this out of love, but it can actually be detrimental to her own happiness.
When Libra aims to cheer someone up or smooth things over after a fight, she will often build the other person up so much so that it’s almost like she’s putting herself down.
She might not see the harm in this now, but it can end up giving people the go-ahead to walk all over her in the future.
Scorpio is passionate about a lot of things, which is why every interaction with her is like a scene from a soap opera.
Friends and family who know her best can often see past this over exaggerated side of her, but it’s not just her emotions that bother people.
If people could say one thing to Scorpio, it would probably be that she needs to learn how to let go and move on.
She can get so caught up in the anger, passion, and happiness that life brings her that she often overlooks the smaller, more important parts of life.
She needs to remember that not everything needs a reaction from her.
Sagittarius is the quintessential party girl who lives for fun. If you know a Sagittarius, then you know that 99.9% of the time, she is surrounded by friends and family.
While she’s great company when you want to spend Friday night out instead of at home, you probably wonder if she ever actually takes a break once in a while.
It’s unsure whether Sagittarius has a problem with being on her own or not, but one thing is for sure: she really needs to learn how to be alone and love herself.
There will be times when she will only have herself for company and if she can have as much fun then as she does with friends, she’ll be a much more mature person.
Capricorn is often known as the person who has some serious self control and is more of an adult than the other signs.
She holds this title very well and will go to great lengths to prove that she is responsible and grown up.
So much so that friends often see her behavior as annoying.
What people might not know about her is that Capricorn goes to these great lengths because she worries what others think of her.
She never wants to be known as the careless, immature person, but these thoughts only cloud her judgment and make it hard for her to be the girl she really is: caring, intelligent, and a good friend.
Aquarius doesn’t care what anyone thinks about her (obviously), which can make her either one of the most confident or annoying friends you’ll have.
She will sometimes go so far out of her way to prove that she can do whatever she wants that she inadvertently hurts someone’s feelings.
Aquarius needs to learn to be more sensitive, not just for others, but for herself, too.
She can sometimes bottle up her real emotions, thinking that’s how she stays tough, when in reality she’s just taking out these pent-up emotions on others.
She needs to learn that being sensitive doesn’t mean she’s weak.
Pisces loves getting in touch with her emotions. She loves that she can express herself eloquently and that others will listen to her.
However, she has a tendency to get caught up in her emotions that can lead to her friends wanting to say something to her without hurting her feelings.
When Pisces gets caught up in her emotions, it can seem like she can’t get over something; she might just really be happy for her friends or sad that something didn’t go her way, but oftentimes, people just want to tell her to get over herself.
It’s okay for her to be so intuitive, but she also needs to understand when enough is enough.
