why you get angry
Zodiac, Self

You need to be kind to yourself.

We say things to ourselves that we’d never allow other people to say to us. We berate, criticize, and bully ourselves often throughout the day and then we wonder why we feel as if our self-esteem has taken a hit.

There are times when it seems like instead of loving ourselves, we can’t stand ourselves. It can get so bad that we secretly hate ourselves and it can create a negative self-image.

What do you do that makes you get mad at yourself?

Sometimes we seem to forget that we’re human and that we make mistakes. We would be the first in line to forgive someone else but for ourselves, we tend to hold impossible standards.

You will fail, make mistakes, and genuinely suck but that doesn't mean you should beat yourself up about it. You need to accept it, try to learn from the failures, and keep going. If you can be grateful for your failures, that’s even better.

Self-hating thoughts are dangerous and can have an impact on your entire life. When you get angry with yourself, it takes a physical and emotional toll.

Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is to block out that critical inner voice. Don’t listen to it — what does it know anyway? It’s so busy exaggerating and berating us that it makes it difficult to practice self-compassion and self-care.

Since astrology influences our personalities, it’s not surprising that each of the zodiac signs has their own self-directed anger issues. What is triggering for one sign may not be for another. It’s good to know what kinds of things seem to make us angry with ourselves. Once identified, you can work on not reacting negatively to them and form a healthier self-image.

Here’s why you get angry at yourself, based on your zodiac sign.

You get angry with yourself when you procrastinate. You can't stand it when you have something that needs to be done hanging over your head. You don't seem to understand that you can't do everything all the time. The thing is, unlike many people, when you do procrastinate you will get to it sooner rather than later. You don't just hope it fades away; you do something about it eventually.

You get angry with yourself when you feel that you gave up on something too easily, which is kind of hilarious as you never give in without a fight. You need to recognize that not everything warrants a knock down drag out fight and that it's healthy to let go of things. You don't have to fight for everything; some things aren't worth your time and energy.

You get mad at yourself when you find yourself tongue-tied. If you meet someone that you want to impress and you can't think of anything clever or amusing to say, you'll be annoyed with yourself for days afterward. You have a gift for words and conversation but even the best conversationalist is occasionally at a loss for words. It's nothing to berate yourself about.

You get mad at yourself when you hang on to a past hurt. You don't want to cry every day over that romance that went bad but until you fully process your feelings, you aren't going to be able to control your sadness. Just be in the moment, feel your feelings and notice how there starts to be more time in between crying jags.

You get angry with yourself when you try to multi-task and instead of accomplishing a lot of tasks, you mess up a bunch of them. It's okay to slow down and do one thing well at a time. You don't have to have so many plates in the air. When you focus on one thing, it generally comes out amazing, so just do that.

You get angry with yourself when you think other people are noticing your imperfections. You strive for perfection and it's bad enough when you notice that something is off about the dress you're wearing or that there's dust underneath your bookshelf, but when you think other people can see where you've missed something, it annoys you to distraction. No one is perfect; your friends and family know that and no one is judging you but you.

You get angry with yourself when you get mad. You try to stay calm and gracious but sometimes you lose your temper. It's okay not to be constantly chill but you don't seem to recognize this. It's better for you to express your anger rather than keep it bottled up. Instead of getting angry, you should be proud of yourself for expressing an honest emotion.

You get mad at yourself for revealing too much. You like to keep an air of mystery about yourself but sometimes you can help it and you overshare. It's okay to want to share information and feelings with people, and you shouldn't reprimand yourself for wanting to connect with people and sharing moments of your life with them.

You get mad at yourself when you act callously to other people. It's not that you don't care, it's just that you have things to do and places to go and you don't have time to listen to long, drawn-out stories or rants. You may brush someone off and not even consider their needs until much later when you realize what you did and how it was a jerk move.

You get mad at yourself when you make terrible decisions. Normally, your decision-making skills are fantastic but occasionally you've listened to the wrong advice and you make a very bad decision. All you can do is try to minimize the damage and promise that next time, you'll do whatever research you need to do and thoroughly think it through before deciding.

You hate yourself when you do something that everybody else is doing because it's easier. You're not a follower — you do your own thing, even when it's the more difficult thing to do. It's fine to occasionally follow the crowd, just don't make a habit of it. You definitely dance to the beat of your own drum and we love that about you.

You get mad at yourself when you don't deal with unpleasant things. You know that they won't go away on their own (even if you want them to), but sometimes you just don't have the energy to do the responsible thing. When you don't do it and it gets worse, you beat yourself up. You know you're a grown-up, it's just that sometimes you wish you weren't.
