Whether you like to admit it or not, we all reach a point in our life when we lead some inner battles. A point in our life when we doubt our self-worth and when we wonder if we are enough.
Whether you like to admit it or not, we all reach a point in our life when we struggle to love ourself more and here is why you do it, according to your zodiac.
Everyone around you assumes that your self-confidence is always high but the truth is that you also have some self-doubts. Your biggest problem is that you enjoy competition and even though this is something that usually pushes you forward and to be better, sometimes it also causes you to compare yourself to others.
This is a zodiac sign which aspires to perfection. As soon as something falls out of order, a Taurus questions themselves, wondering if it is their fault.
If you belong to this zodiac, remember that you can’t have control over everything and everyone around you. Even if things sometimes don’t go as you planned, it doesn’t mean that you should love yourself any less and it definitely doesn’t make you a failure.
If you are a Gemini, you like to be a know-it-all. Yes, Geminis appear to be one of the most spontaneous zodiacs but the truth is that most of your self-esteem relies on your intellectual abilities.
The moment you feel someone is smarter and on a higher intellectual level than you, you feel threatened. Whenever you don’t know literally everything about a certain subject, your self-esteem and self-love are shook.
Cancer is one of the most sensitive zodiac signs and their self-love usually depends on the love other people feel for them. Cancers can’t love themselves until they are certain that the people they deeply care about love them back.
If this is happening to you, remember that you need to love and respect yourself before expecting love and appreciation from others. Remember that your worth is not and never should be determined by the way someone else sees you or treats you.
Leo is considered to be one of the zodiacs who love themselves the most. They are usually self-centered and appear to be full of self-esteem and are sometimes even considered to be one of the most narcissistic zodiacs.
But the truth is usually quite different because Leos are also desperate to get approval from others. They like to be admired and worshipped and if they are not, it can have a negative impact on their self-perception.
Virgos have high standards about everything in their life. And even though this can be a great thing because it prevents them from settling for less, it also gives them unnecessary headaches.
When something doesn’t turn out perfect or the way a Virgo imagined it to be, there is a voice in the back of their head, telling them that they are not the best possible version of themselves. A voice telling them that they should have done more and a voice telling them that they are not enough.
One of the things which is common to most Librans is that they avoid conflict. If you are a Libran, you will fail to stand up for yourself just to not provoke an argument.
But people fail to appreciate this and usually see it as a green light to treat you the way they want and to take advantage of your kindness. The next time this happens to you, remember that we accept the love we think we deserve and you definitely don’t deserve someone who uses you in every possible way.
I am not telling you to become self-centered or to pick fights whenever you have the chance to—I am just advising you to learn how to speak up for yourself and to love and respect yourself a bit more.
What makes you love yourself less is the people around you. Somehow, you keep attracting toxic people who are wrong for you and who diminish your worth.
You keep letting in people who don’t love you enough and with time, you’ve started seeing yourself through their eyes. As soon as you change your environment, your self-view will change and you will start loving yourself more.
A Sagittarian has the need to be right on every occasion and regarding every topic. You simply can’t stand when you are proven wrong and when that happens, it eats you alive.
Your struggle with self-love is connected to the high expectations you have of yourself. You are simply too hard on yourself and for you, it is the end of the world if you don’t achieve everything you’ve set your mind to.
Remember that your self-worth is defined by much more than only your achievements. Give yourself a break from time to time and loosen up a little, instead of being constantly obsessed with success.
Aquarians see their worth through social standards. If you belong to this zodiac, your desperate need to fit in with others is what causes your self-esteem issues.
Whenever you stand out, you feel like everyone is better than you. And this is where you are wrong.
Instead of trying to blend in, cherish and love your uniqueness. You are special and that is something you should never change about yourself.
You are a champion of compassion. And even though this is great for everyone around you, it usually brings you more bad than good.
The truth is that you are an empath who attracts narcissists who eventually take out all of your emotional fuel and energy. I know you think you can save the world but please, focus on saving yourself a little bit more.
