Oftentimes, usually through no other fault than life getting in the way and our own needs taking precedence, it's hard for us to be as thoughtful as we want to be to the people we love.

We can try our hardest to always be there for one another, and always try to ask how the other person's day has been going, but we forget!

And while you might feel like a bad person for these slip-ups, self-forgiveness is a big, important thing that you should never forget to practice. One thing we often forget is how simple thoughtfulness is to practice.

We sometimes get so caught up in thinking of all the ways we can be thoughtful that it all becomes so overwhelming and we forget to do any kind of thoughtfulness for the people we love whatsoever. In reality, thoughtfulness can be just as easy as simply acknowledging someone you love by asking how they are.

Even if that's a phone call instead of in person, everyone appreciates being thought of by someone they care about.

So, how else can we be more thoughtful to the people in our lives?

Write little notes or texts to send to someone for when they wake up or before they go to bed, really listen to what someone is telling you when you're talking to each other (rather than only half-listening while you're playing on your phone), and making time even when you're busy are all easy, touching ways to let someone know that you're thinking about them.

We could all do well to remember that the people in our lives are there for a reason – each one of them holds a specific purpose. And when we make an effort to keep them around, we're keeping our support system close to our hearts.

It might be hard to make time for everyone and everything, but when you really love and care about someone, you will always make time for them. For some of us, being thoughtful comes easy, while it can be a little harder for the rest of us to remember to think about others.

Which side do you fall on? Here are which zodiac signs are thoughtful vs. the ones who are thoughtless, according to astrology.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Not only is Libra one of the most thoughtful horoscope signs, she’s also thoughtful out of the kindness of her heart – not because she knows it’ll get her brownie points with her friends and family. Libra is one of those people who does things just to make someone smile, and letting you know that you were on her mind is one of the ways she does that.

Libra’s thoughtfulness comes from her dedication to putting other’s needs before her own. She wants to hear about your day before you ask about hers, she’ll bring you take out and a good movie when she knows you’ve had a rough day, and she’ll go out of her way just to make you happy.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus’ thoughtfulness can kind of make her seem like the mom friend. Sure, she can be a little bit suffocating, but she just really loves you, okay? Give her a break once in a while.

Since Taurus’ thoughtfulness goes the way of the mom friend, you’ll notice it most often when she asks you if you’ve eaten yet today, to text her when you get home, and to scold you when you forget to wear a jacket outside. Really, all this micromanaging of your life is just her way of letting you know a moment doesn’t go by that she isn’t thinking about your wellbeing. How sweet.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is the best friend you tell everything to. When you're having a bad day, you vent to her. When you're upset about an ex, you cry on her shoulder. No matter what you're going through, Pisces is right there going through it with you. She knows that she doesn't always have to get so involved in other people's lives, but that's just who she is.

Pisces' thoughtfulness also comes from her being one of the most intuitive zodiac signs. Sure, there are times when she makes an effort to understand what you're going through, but there are other times when she just knows what's up. She's thoughtful because she can feel when you're in distress or need a shoulder to lean on, and she knows exactly how to make you feel better.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer's whole "thing" is that she's someone who is always around to take care of her loved ones. I mean, without Cancer in your life, do you really have someone who takes care of you? Rhetorical question. My point is, Cancer can be one of the most thoughtful people out there, whether you're a close friend or family member, or sometimes even someone she's just met.

But Cancer – like every other zodiac sign – is not an angel. She can sometimes be thoughtless just like everyone else, especially if she's uncomfortable or out of her element. For Cancer, though, it's not purposeful thoughtlessness. She's really just trying to adjust until she's comfortable again, so remember to give her a break now and then.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio's mysterious and often reserved attitude might seem like she's not very thoughtful – because it's hard to tell what she's like at all – but let's not forget that she's the ride or die friend who would probably, literally die for you if she had to. I mean, if that's not thoughtful in and of itself, I honestly don't know what is.

Not only that, but Scorpio is generally just a very loyal friend. If you're in her inner circle, she's thinking about you. Are you happy? Do you need anything? Can she do something for you? When it comes to her friends, Scorpio has nothing but pure, kind thoughts for them.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo might seem pretty intimidating to those who don't know her very well, but her friends see someone thoughtful and sweet. When it comes to

her squad, Leo is nothing short of kind and thoughtful. But when she's at work or competing against someone else, that's when she can show her thoughtless, intimidating side.

Leo likes being known as the friendly, leader of the pack type of person who is always around to give advice and be in charge. But, like the lion, she will also tear people apart if they try to get in her way. It's not so much thoughtlessness for other people when she's like this, but more trying to look out for her own needs.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is another one of those zodiac signs who might seem thoughtless on the outside but is actually pretty thoughtful once you get to know her. Since she's often known as the lone wolf of the zodiac, it's easy for her to seem like all she cares about is being on her own. In reality, her thoughtfulness comes out only around her innermost circle.

It's not that Sagittarius has a hard time trusting people, really. It's more that she knows that not everyone is worth her time or effort. If you're in her life, she sees you as someone who is worth making an effort for. Otherwise, not so much.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

This isn't meant to sound like some kind of "cop-out," but when Aquarius is being thoughtless, it's really because she's just being herself (and doesn't always know better). Aquarius is one of those zodiac signs who relies on logic and fact over emotions, so when she makes decisions that may seem thoughtless to others, it's really not that deep to her.

Anyone who doesn't know Aquarius that well might think that she's pretty thoughtless, however her friends know otherwise. While Aquarius is capable of being selfish at times, she still cares deeply for her friends and family, and is known for being thoughtful when it comes to them.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo knows her worth – she knows which people are worth putting time and effort into, and which people are just going to bring her down. Call her brutally honest and thoughtless, but if you're just going to waste her time, she really doesn't care.

Virgo may seem thoughtless and inconsiderate to some people, but she's also the kind of zodiac signs who knows that life isn't JUST about pleasing others. Don't get her wrong, she does care about people, but she also cares about her own happiness. Some call it thoughtless, she calls it smart.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini is less thoughtless than she is clueless. I mean, there isn't much else besides "me, me, me" going through her mind... no offense, Gemini. She's always been the restless zodiac sign of the bunch, which means her mind never stays focused on one thing or person for very long.

The thing that makes Gemini pretty thoughtless and careless is her inability to put her own wants aside for someone else long enough for them to know that she really does care about them. Sure, there are times when she does show she's thinking about you, but oftentimes, she's just thoughtless.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn is another one of those zodiac signs, like Virgo, whose thoughtlessness comes from knowing her value. She knows that she can be thoughtless at times (duh, she's not dumb), but also ask her if she cares and she's most likely going to say no.

Capricorn doesn't like to surround herself with thoughtless or careless people because she feels like it brings down her value as a person. Ouch, I know. Capricorn's thoughtlessness comes from refusing to think of others when she's on her grind. She doesn't have time to waste, and if you're going to call her thoughtless and inconsiderate for it, then that's just how it has to be.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is one of the most thoughtless zodiac signs. Mostly, it comes from her reckless and unmindful behavior. Usually, Aries does things impulsively, which means she doesn't usually give herself a lot of time to think about the consequences of her actions. She might shrug and think she can just clean up after her mistakes, but it isn't always that easy.

Aries likes being known as the cool, unbothered zodiac sign of the bunch, but really, she's just the reckless and often thoughtless one. Sure, she does care about some things, but as an impulsive person, don't always count on her choosing to be thoughtful over thoughtless.
