Why Each Zodiac Has A Bad Habit Of Assuming The Worst

Why Each Zodiac Has A Bad Habit Of Assuming The Worst

Aries

You assume the worst because you would rather be pleasantly surprised by something going right than caught off guard by something going wrong.

Taurus

You assume the worst because you’ve been hurt before and are trying to protect yourself from it happening again. You’re trying to shield your heart so it doesn’t get broken again.

Gemini

You assume the worst because you want to be prepared for every possible scenario. You want to know that you’ll be okay if shit hits the fan.

Cancer

You assume the worst because you’re insecure. You don’t have enough faith in yourself. You assume you’re going to make the wrong decisions, say the wrong thing. You don’t give yourself enough credit.

Transforming Self-Sabotage Into Self Mastery

For centuries, the mountain has been used as a metaphor for the big challenges we face, especially ones that seem impossible to overcome. To scale our mountains, we actually have to do the deep internal work of excavating trauma, building resilience, and adjusting how we show up for the climb. In the end, it is not the mountain we master, but ourselves.

Leo

You assume the worst because you’re scared of getting too excited. You’re scared of dreaming too big. You’re scared of raising your expectations too high.

Virgo

You assume the worst because you’re a realist. You know the world is unfair. You know things aren’t always going to go your way.

Libra

You assume the worst because you’re an overthinker. You don’t know how to shut your mind down. You don’t know how to take a break and really, truly relax.

Scorpio

You assume the worst because you’ve seen what other people have been through. You know how cruel the world can be. You know life isn’t always fair.

Sagittarius

You assume the worst because it gives you an excuse to stay inside your comfort zone. It gives you an excuse to say, “No thank you. There’s no reason to try. It isn’t going to work out anyway.”

Capricorn

You assume the worst because you think the worst of people. You don’t trust them. You don’t think they have good intentions. You wouldn’t be surprised if they hurt you.

Aquarius

You assume the worst because you don’t want to be disappointed. You don’t want to get your hopes up too high and then have them coming crashing down.

Pisces

You assume the worst because you cannot picture something good happening to you. It’s easier to believe that something is going to go horribly wrong than to believe it’s going to go right. TC mark
