zodiac signs who care too much

As compassionate and empathetic as you may be, you can’t save everyone and you can’t care about every single thing. You just can’t; if you tried, your head would probably explode. 

It’s easy to tell someone to let something go or to not dwell on a problem or a worry, but it’s not that easy just to focus on something else or forget about something that may have been bothering us. It’s not healthy to worry about things we have no control over.

You may fret about what people think of you, even checking your horoscope to see what you can do to change that. When you find that someone doesn't like you, you may try to figure out a way to change their opinion of you. This is a waste of energy and you’ll put yourself through a lot of grief — and you still may not get the result you seek.

Perhaps you worry excessively about the amount of money that comes in and goes out of your life. You can be careful and thoughtful about your spending and think of ways to get more money, but if you focus too much on it, you will miss out on the rest of your life.

There are some people who care way too much about social media and who check into Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter hundreds of times a day, comparing their life experience to those of the people they know. Social media is curated — while someone may seem to have a perfect life, their life is actually just as full of ups and downs as everybody else’s.

If you spend too much time dwelling on the past, you’ll miss the present. What’s done is truly done and once you’ve learned what you could from it, it’s best to let it go and move on from it. Here are the zodiac signs who care too much and what they should stop obsessing over.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You need to stop caring about filling up every minute of every day. You don't have to constantly be doing something. It's okay just to relax and watch some Netflix without feeling guilty about it. Self-care is more important than you know. If you must multi-task, then fold some laundry or do a beauty mask while you binge-watch an entire season of Game of Thrones. You aren't wasting time when you're not doing something; no one will ever accuse you of being lazy.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You need to stop caring about what other people think of you and your home. You are who you are and you have your own likes and dislikes. You need to decorate for you and not care what other people might think. If you want to go completely retro with your interior design, go for it! Who cares if it's trendy or not? You do you and you'll be better than fine.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You need to stop caring about being the perfect host at every event. You practically kill yourself making sure that everyone is having a good time and you spend hours making sure that vegetarians, vegans, lactose intolerant, gluten-free, and no-carbs people have something that they can eat. You're very considerate but so much so that you're too busy worrying about everybody else's needs and don't enjoy the party.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You need to stop caring about your exes. It's great that you still have some interest in their lives, but you're boarding on the line of obsession. They were once in your life but that doesn't mean that you're responsible for their actions or bad decisions. You need to separate yourself from them and focus on you and your future.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You need to stop caring about how popular your social media shares are. Some posts are going to get lots of likes and others (even if you think they're really good) won't get that many. The reactions you get to a social media post isn't a reflection of you as a person. If something does or doesn't go viral, it says nothing about the strength of your character or the kindness of your heart.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You need to stop caring about any social faux pas or missteps you might have made. Everyone makes mistakes and while it's great that you learn from yours, at a certain point, you need to forgive yourself and your transgressions and move on. No one expects you to be perfect and no one is analyzing your mistakes but you. Give yourself a break and let it go.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Of all the zodiac signs who care too much, you need to stop obsessing that you're going to say something wrong and hurt someone's feelings. You have a right to your opinion and it's much better to get something out (in a kind way) than it is to hold it in until you explode. Your voice needs to be heard, not silenced. Be more opinionated, be strong, and say what's on your mind.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You need to stop caring about failure. True failure is giving up. You need to see failure as a chance to learn, grow, and get better. You can't let fear of failure stop you from pursuing your goals. Failure isn't embarrassing or humiliating, it's a chance to do something in a new way. Failure isn't a big scary monster, it's your teacher and your friend.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You need to stop caring about the "what ifs" and questioning the decisions you've made. Yes, you could have done something a different way or gone to a different place, but that doesn't mean you can't do those things or go to those places in the future. When you overthink, it's a waste of your energy and time. Trust your instincts and believe that you know what you're doing.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You need to stop caring about society's expectations. You don't have to be wealthy and powerful to have a good life. You need to like and respect yourself as you are; you don't have to live up to anyone else's expectations but your own. Your goal should be self-acceptance, not besting your co-worker or neighbors. Trust that you have what you need to move forward at your own pace and in your own way.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You need to stop caring about what you don't have and focus on what you do have. There's always going to be new technology and new stuff but that doesn't mean that you're less-than if you don't have them. Your life is what you make of it and the experiences you have. At the end of your life, it won't be all the things you bought, but all the love you shared and the experiences you had that you'll look back on.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You need to stop caring if everyone likes you. Listen, no matter what you do, not everybody is going to like you and it's pointless to try to change their mind. Maybe they'll come around to the wonderfulness of you or perhaps they won't, but their approval should mean very little to you. Appreciate the people that do like you and do your best to be good to them. One true friend is worth more than a bunch of acquaintances.
