We all have that one person in our lives that we can't stand – and wish weren't in our lives. Hate might be a strong word (at least, that's what my mother always told me), but there are sometimes when we just can't help but say that we hate someone.

Some zodiac signs are much more comfortable in their hate for someone, while others employ the "avoid and disappear" method and hope that works. I mean, even thinking about the person I hate is raising my blood pressure a little.

Clearly, there's a reason you hate the person you do, otherwise, you probably wouldn't even be thinking about them, right? Unfortunately, hate is an emotion, so while you say that you don't care about them in the slightest, you still kind of do because you hate them. Sorry... semantics.

My point is, hating someone comes with a lot of responsibility. You simultaneously don't want to be near them, let alone be in the same state as them, but you also want them to know that you couldn't dislike them more if you tried.

Of course, we don't all get our way, and there are times when we have to be around the people we hate, no matter how hard we try to avoid them.

That said, do you really want to live your life avoiding someone you hate just because you may or may not run into them? No, of course not.

You shouldn't have to stop doing the things you want just because of someone else. We all hate someone for different reasons; whether you dislike the way they treat other people, or you can't stand their, "I'm better than everyone attitude," there is a reason why you can't stand that one person.

But no matter why you hate certain people, you tend to always deal with having to be around them the same way. For me, it's all in the face – I swear, if my eyeballs weren't attached to my face, they'd probably roll right out of my head.

What can I say? Dealing with the person I hate makes me want to roll my eyes incessantly at them.

Some of us, based on astrology, are a little more vocal about having to be around the people they hate while others make it impossible to tell what they really think of you.

Every zodiac sign is different, but one thing is still true: each one of them has to deal with someone they can't stand at some point in their lives.

Here's how each zodiac sign acts when they have to be around someone they hate, according to astrology, by horoscope date.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, you don't trust yourself to be polite or even cordial around people you hate, so you try to distance yourself as much as possible around them. You won't actively avoid them – because you don't feel like your social life should suffer just because you might run into someone you hate while you're out – but you do try to stay as far away from them anyway.

You're mostly distant when you're around someone you hate, both emotionally and physically, if possible. You might give the obligatory half-smile or one-word answers when it's absolutely necessary, but you'll be too caught up living your life to worry what to do the rest of the time.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, you don't trust yourself to not get emotional when you're around someone you hate, so you go the obvious route and just straight up ignore them. You don't even care how petty you look doing it either, as long as you get your point across that you do not, under any circumstances, like this person.

It takes a lot for you to straight up hate someone, so there's a good chance that you and this person you now hate have some history together. And there's also a good chance that you have tried for a loooong time to try to make a polite friendship work. But now that you've resigned yourself to hating this person, you want to send them the message that they're dead to you.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini, there are some days when you wish you could take the high road and just ignore the people you hate, but it's so much sweeter to be able to call them out for being ugly on the inside – or what you consider to be ugly on the inside (basically just anyone who disagrees with you). You will call out the people you hate every day of the week in every way possible.

This is why social media can be so dangerous for you. Sure, you know how to use it for fun and all that, but you also know that tagging the people you hate in your call-out posts is very effective. You also don't mind calling people out IRL, but that takes time and effort, whereas you always have your phone on you, making social media that much more accessible.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer, you really don't like using the word "hate," but sometimes it's a good way to describe how you feel about someone. When you have to be around someone you hate, though, you're very unlikely to do anything about it. You're most likely to keep it to yourself and hope that the time you're around this person is over quickly.

You believe that hate gives you wrinkles and brings unnecessary stress to your life. It most definitely does, but so does hiding your true feelings, boo. Like the crab, you will snap if provoked often enough, but you'll still first ask yourself if it's even worth it to get into a messy argument with someone you hate.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, you are shady AF when it comes to being around people you hate. You will tweet emojis of snakes and eye rolls when around this person, all the while knowing that the person you hate still follows you on social media. It's crazy petty behavior, but what can you say? There are some people who just deserve to see your messy side.

If provoked, you will call out the people you hate and start a heated argument with them, but more often than not, you will keep being shady until they get the hint and leave you alone. You also love venting about these people to your friends and will be furiously texting them during this time or giving them the side eye if you're together the whole time.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo, you don't have time to hate people; it's just a waste of the time you could be spending doing something positive for yourself. When you do have to be around people you hate (c'mon, we all hate someone, you're no different), you simply pretend that they don't exist.

And like it or not, you can be incredibly petty too, so it's not uncommon for you to intentionally ignore someone you hate when they ask you a question or even step on their toes when you walk by. But the difference between you being petty and everyone else is that you're scary good at it. So good that the people you hate might even start to question if they're not actually invisible.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, you hate starting drama with people, but there are times when you just can't help yourself. Whenever you're around someone you hate, you can't help but snap at them like they're a child. You have a very short fuse around these people and it's common for you to get annoyed easily or even get up and leave when they start talking.

You know that your short fuse when you're around people you hate can be really rude, but you also don't really care what they think. You already have a great group of friends who have your back, and just because you hate this one person doesn't mean you can't find someone else to replace them just as easily.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio you are another one of those zodiac signs that just doesn't have the time to actively hate someone. If you do hate someone, you're most likely to just tell them and get it over with. It might be hard on them at first, but you'll both be much happier later on when you don't have to deal with each other anymore.

You are not the kind of person who will force yourself into a friendship or any kind of relationship with someone you can't stand. You would much rather be known as the brutally honest one who tells people if you love them or hate them rather than keep your true feelings to yourself.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius, you don't like hating people because you feel like all it does is bring a black cloud over your life. You know that putting all of your time and energy into hating someone just means that you're the one that ends up getting burned – not them. That doesn't mean you don't hate anyone, but you also don't care about being petty with how you hate someone.

When you're around someone you just can't stand, you usually shrug them off. You'll leave the room if they're there, you'll purposely not invite them to outings, and if they are around, you'll choose to ignore them instead of starting something messy.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, you're not one for confrontation, but you're also not someone who will stand for injustice. If you feel like the person you can't stand just keeps making life difficult for you, you will most definitely say something to them and clear the air that you just don't like them. When you hate someone, you prefer to be honest about it instead of beating around the bush.

The sooner you can go about your business and lead a happy life without the person you hate in it, the better. You know that you can be a little scary when you're being brutally honest, but really, how else are they going to know that you hate them and are serious about it, right?!

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, it's not always easy to tell when you hate someone because you're not as flamboyant about your hatred as other zodiac signs are. But just because you opt for more subtle approaches to your hatred doesn't mean you don't hate anyone. You just believe that not everyone has to know that you hate someone.

When you are around someone you hate, your tone of voice speaks volumes. You might be a little snappy or annoyed, and there will most definitely be a lot of eye-rolling and exasperated expressions on your face, but you'll almost always keep your comments to yourself... at least until you're alone with this person when you can be honest about how you feel.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces, you hate the thought of anyone seriously hating you, even if you hate people yourself. There's just something about knowing that someone out there can't stand you that makes you crazy uncomfortable.

Whenever you are around someone you hate, you can be very manipulative. In fact, it might even come as a total shock to the person you hate that you can't stand them. You may hate someone, but you'll still be nice to them, smile when they talk to you and even invite them out with you. It's classic manipulative behavior, but you just can't bring yourself to be honest.
