Girl, that's cold.

Most of the time, you try to treat others with kindness and respect but there are times when you can get mean. 

Don’t worry, you’re not alone; everybody has a mean-streak and sometimes we can’t help ourselves when we do something that’s atrocious, harsh, or spiteful. Hopefully, you’re not a stone-cold bitch every second of every day.

I know "bitch" isn’t a nice word and most of the time we don’t like to be referred as one unless it’s meant humorously. However, there have been times when I did something mean on purpose and was deliberately being a bitch.

I wouldn't be being honest if I tried to say that I never did anything mean. Not only have I been deliberately cruel, but there have been occasions when I’ve been vicious and kind of enjoyed it (only to regret it hugely later).

No one is 100 percent nice all the time. I’ve met people before whose reputations for being so nice prefaced the actual face to face introduction and they just came off fake to me. I’m not saying that being nice is bad, just that if you’re too afraid to show who you really are or how you truly feel, then that kind of nice just feels incredibly false.

I’d rather someone get out their negative feelings at the time than storing them up and acting nice to your face, only to stab you in the back when you’re least expecting it. Have your moment of not-so-nice and get it out of your system. If you are expressing how you really feel, even if it’s not attractive, it’s much healthier than constantly faking it.

But never be mean in such a way that it hurts someone so badly that they can’t recover from it; don't be cruel to those who simply can’t defend themselves like animals or sick people. Here are the meanest zodiac signs who give "bitch" a new meaning.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You seem to have a sixth sense about whatever a person is most sensitive about and that's where you attack. You can be confrontational to the extreme and you love to argue so much that anyone who dares stand up to you may end up in tears. It's that need to win at all costs. Sometimes it truly isn't about winning or losing but playing the game. You can get so blood-thirsty about winning that you devastate your opponent.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

It's your greed that sometimes makes you do cruel things. Your greed can consume you to such an extent that you don't care who you hurt. That kind of tunnel vision is dangerous and once you get fixated on something, you will obliterate anything or anyone who gets in your way.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You love talking about people behind their backs and sometimes your gossip about them is just plain mean. Your intentions may not be to talk smack about someone but once you get going and you've got your audience's full attention, you can't stop. You know that it's not nice but there are times when it's much more entertaining for someone to hear something nasty about someone else rather than the good things.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You're meanest when you've been hurt. You don't do well with pain, and when you get truly angry, you will lash out and will try to cause as much pain as humanly possible. Unlike Scorpio, you generally don't sit back and plot your revenge. You have no patience for that; you want immediate satisfaction in letting them feel how you felt.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You don't intend to be cruel but if someone tries to control you or dominate you, you'll have a very negative reaction. You may try to manipulate them in a situation where you shine and they fail, like giving a presentation to a client when you know they can't stand to talk in front of a crowd.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You can be very mean to yourself. When you get hypercritical of yourself, it's as if you're beating yourself up. You show no mercy and you keep criticizing yourself for every little thing that's wrong about your appearance or behavior. You need to stand up to that cruel inner voice that you have and learn to appreciate everything about you rather than focusing on what you think is wrong. It's just not nice.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You're mean by proxy. You definitely don't enjoy being one of the meanest zodiac signs and you don't like it when others are mean to you, but you do have a highly developed sense of justice. When you feel that someone got what they had coming to them, there's a part of you that isn't empathetic or compassionate towards the victim. You're also fascinated by true crime and serial killers — not that you'd ever do anything that heinous, it just appeals to your dark side.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You love to get into somebody's head and play mental mind games with them. It's not only mean, it's manipulative and not admirable. You're just showing off your mental prowess in a cruel way and it's not very appealing.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

The meanest thing you do is how you can be so self-centered that you don't even see how other people are hurting. You're clueless. You'd complain to someone who didn't have shoes about how your Jimmy Choos hurt your feet.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You can get mean when you're trying to teach someone a lesson. Your intentions are good but you get so wrapped up in the lesson that you go too far and you often ending up hurting the student. Most of the time, it's better if the person learns the hard way on their own rather than you sticking your nose in and causing trouble and pain.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You're cruel when you're cold, making you one of the meanest zodiac signs. We get it — you don't like to get emotional or witness other people's pain but there are times when that aloof attitude just makes the person feel worse. If you could just listen, maybe give them a hug, and possibly add a word of advice, there wouldn't be any additional pain involved. When you just shut down a person who's feeling hurt, you just compound the situation.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You don't mean to be mean but when you get so lost in your imagination that you stop listening to someone, feelings get hurt. There are times that you need to be present if you're going to help the situation rather than make it worse. When a loved one feels as if they're not interesting enough to keep your attention, it hurts as badly as if you had punched them in the face.
