We’ve all been there.
Have you ever had a day where nothing went your way? Whether you just woke up on the wrong side of the bed or you had plans to make it a successful day, something screwed it up and it ended up just being a really sh*tty day.
When this happens to me, it’s almost impossible for me to get out of my slump. It feels like the world is against me and the only thing I want to do is go back to bed and try again tomorrow.
For some of us, though, it doesn’t matter if you have a bad day. You can just shake off the stress and try again.
Those types of people are the ones who value being positive. They are always looking on the bright side and while you might not always feel the way they do, they always have a way of making things better than they seem.
But for the rest of us, sh*tty days mean everything comes to a halt. Because even if we try to stay on the positive side, something always brings us down.
It might be the fact that you got stuck in almost two hours of traffic on your way to work or wanted to treat yourself to breakfast and ended up spilling coffee all over yourself.
And unfortunately, both of these things have happened to me, so I know how you feel.
If you’ve ever been curious about how your sign deals with a bad day, keep reading. And maybe one day, you’ll be able to turn the frown upside down and learn from the zodiac signs that are always positive.
Aries only has bad days when others piss her off.
She is generally pretty good and giving herself anything she needs to be the successful, bad ass girl she is, but when people test her, all hell breaks loose.
Aries doesn’t let one person or crappy thing ruin her entire day. She usually acknowledges how she’s feels at that moment, takes a minute to collect herself, and then moves on.
Think about it: have you EVER seen anything get to an Aries? The answer to that is no.
When Taurus has a bad day, she often starts out in denial.
This is especially true if she was originally having a good day because she doesn’t want to let anything bring her down.
Once she finally accepts that her day has been ruined, she’ll go grab her favorite food, get back into bed, and watch Netflix for the rest of the day.
Taurus can be pretty grumpy when she’s feeling down, so it’s better that she disengages herself from everyone for a while.
Gemini’s reaction to a bad day is all in how she is feeling that day.
If she is only dealing with a minor inconvenience, or if she is in a good mood, it’s pretty hard to get her down.
If one thing after another keeps trying to bring her down, she’ll just give up.
Gemini is known for having two sides to her personality, which is still true when it comes to dealing with bad experiences.
When dealing with a crappy day, she will most likely try to cheer herself up by hanging out with friends because they always know how to make her feel better.
Cancer often looks to how she can help others when she’s having a bad day.
It might sound weird, but she is way more worried about how others deal with a bad day than her own feelings.
This can be especially true if she is sharing a bad experience with someone else.
By going out of her way to make them feel better, she ends up cheering herself up. Her selfless attitude is the perfect cure-all.
As if it weren’t already obvious, Leo tends to go all-out dramatic when she’s having an off day.
Even if it’s no big deal, she would much rather everyone know she’s having a bad day instead of just dealing with it and moving on.
She might pout and stomp around for a bit when she has a crappy day, but then she goes right back to making herself feel better the only way she knows how: by giving herself undivided attention.
That said, she is always open to others stepping up and cheering her up themselves.
Virgo has a very envy-worthy way of dealing with a bad day.
She knows that there will always be bad days, just like there will be good days, but she also knows that how you deal with these bad days can help you feel better faster.
So, what’s her secret? To simply take the day as it comes. If her crappy day ruins her lunch hour, then she puts extra effort into making herself a nice dinner.
She knows the little things in life are always what cheers someone up.
Libra tends to wait for bad days to happen, as if it’s inevitable.
This doesn’t mean she’s ALWAYS in a bad mood, but when her day is ruined, she’s the first to say, “I knew it.”
Libra can sometimes let her nerves get in the way of successfully dealing with a crappy day, so don’t be surprised if her go-to remedy is just going back to bed.
It’s not always the most effective or healthiest option for her, but it’s good enough to get her back to a better mood.
When Scorpio is having a bad day, it’s in everyone’s best interest to steer clear of her until she’s feeling better.
It might not even have anything to do with you, but that won’t stop her from taking it out on you.
Scorpio’s emotions can change on a dime, making it hard to know exactly what she’s thinking at any given time.
When she’s having a bad day, she will allow herself to be mad; this is the best way she knows how to deal.
Sagittarius knows that a bad day means that she won’t be herself.
Since she is such an outgoing, fun girl, she hates when bad days make it hard for her to get out of a funk.
Sagittarius usually tries everything she can to make the crappy day go away.
Whether that means hanging out with friends or treating herself to a day of fun and relaxation, Sagittarius is the person who will kick a bad day’s butt before it kicks hers.
Capricorn tries to keep her emotions under control, especially with the threat of something ruining her day.
She hates being known as the person who can’t deal with her problems, but this only makes it look like she is incapable of any kind of emotion.
Capricorn knows that this doesn’t really make her look good to others, but she also does not care what everyone thinks of her.
She would rather be left alone until she can figure things out instead of pestered by everyone about how she is.
Aquarius tends to deal with bad days differently, depending on what is getting her down.
She might be able to shrug something off if she already had a bad feeling, but if she has been looking forward to a day or activity, this can make a bad day even worse.
She tends to withdraw from everyone and everything until she feels better because no one knows how to deal with a grumpy Aquarius like herself.
She appreciates people trying to help, but for the most part, she understands that she can be unresponsive and would prefer to be alone.
Pisces always tries her hardest not to let crappy days get her down, but in the end, they always do.
One thing you will never see a Pisces do, though, is ignore a bad day. She will always address how she feels and then will get down to trying to cheer herself up.
Self-care after a bad day for a Pisces can range anywhere from a day of watching movies in bed to inviting her friends over for a home cooked meal.
She has many ways to help her feel better and if she tries them all and she’s STILL having a bad day, then she asks for help from the people who know her best: her BFFs.
