Understanding A Scorpio

Scorpios are probably the most misunderstood signs and so harshly judged.

Their blunt sometimes offensive sarcastic nature is taken the wrong way. When in reality it’s just a defense mechanism to protect themselves.

Behind the walls a Scorpio puts up is someone who is truly one of the kindest most considerate people who feel things deeper than anyone else.

While you see someone who is stubborn and sometimes arrogant. The reality is they are so incredibly hard on themselves and want to excel in everything in their life.

Stubborn is really persistent.

Being overly confident is the result of someone who worked their butt off to achieve things.

Of all signs they are the most loyal. They are never going to be the person who cheats. To them they value their character and their morals.

But if you cross a Scorpio or do something to hurt them, they don’t try and get back at you, they remove you so easily from their life and you feel their absence everywhere. It’s that silence and the fact they don’t respond is what gets to you most. They are the type of people you take for granted and you don’t realize what you have until they are gone.And once you hurt them or break their trust the relationship will never be the same because even in the off chance they forgive you, they will never forget what you did.

Of their flaws comes jealousy and their inability to love carelessly. They are so cautious with matters of the heart because they know what it’s like to get taken for granted and taken advantage of. While it seems like in the beginning they are going to test you, if you can overcome that and work to build their trust you’ll realize how worth it people like them all.

Once they trust you all their walls come down and you see this vulnerability, sensitivity and understanding of everyone and everything.

They look at you and it’s like they see right through you into the core of who you are. Their ability to read people is one of their better traits so if there’s someone they have a bad feeling about even if they don’t have reasons to justify it, listen to them.

They know when someone is fake and just not a good person. Because they are and even with their mistakes they try to be and try to make things right and have good relationships.

They are the types of people who are wise beyond their years. Giving insight you really should take to heart and listen to.

They will be the relationship that changes what you know love even is.

They are the dominant one in relationships but under the surface so sensitive. And while it might appear like they like to control things and make the big choices once you win over their heart you’re the one that controls them.

They will be the friendship you can’t imagine your life without. They are the best secret keepers because they value the fact you tell them things and confide in them and trust them. Again trust is huge for Scorpios.

What gives a Scorpio their bad rep is sometimes the emotions they project is anger but it’s really disappointment or being upset.

When they are cold and say things with a sharp tongue they are scared and protecting themselves.

When people call them nuts. It’s really someone else’s inability to value them seeing their passion and the fact they don’t stop until they get what they want or achieve what they set out to.

When people say they are bad at relationships what they are bad at are the wrong relationships and someone who didn’t value them.

But with the right relationships in their life and support Scorpios rise above every other sign. TC mark

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
