Zodiac, Heartbreak

If you think that the man in your life is responsible for all the stars in the sky and every inch of happiness in your life, you're wrong.

No matter how great you think your significant other maybe, he is not a god.

When in a relationship, women often get carried away and begin to think the man in their life is worth more than themselves.

This can cause an unrealistic expectation to be placed upon the relationship and when that expectation is not met, the relationship will crumble.

There is no such thing as a perfect man.

Sure, you may have met the love of your life and feel happy around him, but this does not mean all of his actions should go unexcused.

The imaginary pedestal you built for him in your head will not hold up as well as you dream it will.

Here is why each zodiac sign should never put a man on a pedestal – no matter how connected you two maybe.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Aries, you shouldn't put a man on a pedestal because they will become too scared to show you their imperfections.

You need to realize the man in your life is human too – he has both strengths and weaknesses that contribute to his character.

If you continue to place him on a pedestal, he will become horrified to show you any of his weaknesses. If you can't see both sides of your partner, he may end up leaving.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus, you hate insecurity of any kind. If you place your man on a pedestal, he will be the one who becomes insecure.

If he feels he cannot obtain the level of perfection you claim him to have, he will start to feel inadequate in your relationship.

He will begin to wonder why he isn't able to be the man you want him to be; this insecurity can cause way more harm than good in the relationship.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini, you should never put a man on a pedestal because it will only prohibit his growth. Although you hate having a set routine, he needs one to feel consistent and secure in the relationship.

If he constantly feels rushed to be this perfect human and not be able to have some good days and bad days, he will start to think he will never be able to improve on himself.

Take him off of the pedestal you've created in your head and allow him room to learn more about himself in whatever way he feels comfortable.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer, you are likely to put a man on a pedestal to avoid dealing with the more serious and difficult conversations that need to be had. This is dangerous because it will make him feel like he cannot express his demons to you, and vice versa.

Nobody wants to talk about their deepest, darkest secrets, but sometimes it is necessary to let it all out on the table. Even if he sits on the pedestal, his past will still be a part of him.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Leo, you usually believe you should be the one on the pedestal. You see yourself as the most valuable asset to the relationship and never once considered putting a man above yourself.

However, this means that you need to take yourself off of the pedestal and see you and your partner as equals. His patience may wear thin if he starts to think you possess the powers of a god.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo, at the end of the day, if you put the man in your life on a pedestal, he will end up leaving. He won't be able to handle the pressure of being the man you want him to be, as he has his own desires and expectations he wants to fulfill.

Even if you only place him on a pedestal for a short amount of time, he will feel frightened and run for the hills. Don't over-analyze every situation and allow the relationship to flow naturally, as equals.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libra, you put your man on a pedestal because that is what all of your friends have done in their relationships. You should never place your partner above yourself because you feel like others will judge you for it. You know that you're both equals and each share flaws, but you also want to fit in with your couple friends.

Just because Sharon decided that Jason was a god above all men doesn't mean you need to think your man is, too. Focus on strengthening your relationship and take your mind off of those around you.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio, similar to Cancer, you shouldn't place your man on a pedestal because it will stunt your ability to deal with the hard stuff. He isn't perfect and has a lot of flaws, which you won't be able to see clearly if he is placed above the clouds.

Bring him back down to Earth and discuss the hardships face to face. You won't be able to keep a man in your life without being open and honest with each other about things that are a tad awkward.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius, you should never put a man on a pedestal because it will give you an unrealistic expectation of how all men should be. Not every man in your life will be perfect – you have to swim rummage through the trash to eventually find the hidden piece of gold.

Putting every man on a pedestal to protect your heart and avoid confrontation is not the best way to live. See men for who they truly are – the good, the bad, the ugly, and the super handsome.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorn, you should not put a man on a pedestal because it will only make you question your values. You know you want a man who is kind, loyal, and beyond funny.

However, you also are willing to settle for less because you don't want to be alone. Don't find a dull man and put him on a pedestal because you are in denial that he might not be the one, wait till the right man comes along who will raise you up.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius, putting a man on a pedestal will only create an idea in your head of what you assume the person is like. You may think he is one thing when in reality, he is quite the opposite.

Once reality starts to kick in and you realize the man on the pedestal is not at all what you imagined, the butterflies in your stomach will instantly disappear.

This will also cause the man to try and put on a mask of who you think they are and lead them to lose sight of their own, true identity.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces, you should never put a man on a pedestal because it will only end up in him feeling a sense of the power of you.

He will start to think he can take advantage of your caring and kind nature.

Protect your heart and peaceful mindset by equaling the playing field for all the men in your life. Do not let any man abuse your trusting nature.
