(March 21st to April 19th)
You will not always feel this torn between adventure and the real world – at some point, you will learn how to combine them if you really try.
(April 20th to May 21st)
You are not selfish or pathetic or weird or a bad person for sometimes being jealous of other people and their seemingly amazing lives – this is actually one of the most human things about you.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
You don’t have to be light and ‘on’ all the time – the people who are closest to you will love you in your low or anxious or tired moments, too. The only person who doesn’t understand this to be true is you.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
You are not a bad person for walking away from a supposed ‘friend’ or from a significant other who does nothing but hurt you – on the contrary, this only shows how truly strong you are.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
It is not your job to be everything to everyone every day. You are a naturally generous, thoughtful, and caring person, but it is not your job to fix everyone else’s life.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
You never need to change who you are – what you need to do is to stop demanding perfection from yourself, and start being as proud of yourself and supportive of yourself as your loved ones are.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
Being in a committed relationship and having an exciting, independent life outside of your partner are not mutually exclusive things – you can have both, and you’re the only one stopping yourself from doing so.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
It is okay to want success, to want to achieve your goals. But it is also okay to slow down sometimes, to enjoy life in the little moments, and to give your soul and your brain and your heart a break every once in a while.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
Your happiness and brightness are a beautiful gift to everyone around you, but it is not your job to be that way for them all the time. You are allowed to have your dark moments, too.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
Never lose your ambition and your focus, but also make sure not to get so caught up in your goals and your aspirations that you forget to be present in all the special little moments of your life.
(January 21st to February 18th)
It is okay and normal and totally understandable that opening up to someone is terrifying to you – but it is not okay to let your fear ever stop you from actually trying to be vulnerable and trying to connect with another human being.
(February 19th to March 20th)
You should never try to be anyone else but yourself; your imagination, your compassion, and your sense of wonder about the world will always be some of the best qualities you ever have.
