Sagittarius: Why Your Life Sucks and What to Do About It
First, please don’t take this as criticism or insults, my dear Sags. My brother is a Sag and I know several, so this is not meant in hate! This is simply tough love for those of you who need it. If you’re a spicy Sag, let me know:I'm a Sagittarius! ♐️ Click To Tweet
If you’re going through a tough time right now, here are a few reasons that might explain it:
1). You’re Doing Too Much Alone
I’m an introvert, so I get it. It’s nice to be alone. However, life can get incredibly difficult, and you need people you can count on to help you out. You may feel like you don’t have anyone, but have you asked? You’d be surprised who is willing to help when you ask. You’d also be surprised at how much help people are willing to give.
The Solution: Write down the ways you need help. Now write down people who may be willing to help. Could you try reaching out to one of these people today to see if they’re available?
2). You’re Not Listening to Advice or Critiques
Not everyone is a “hater,” dear Sagittarius. Some people truly want to help you. Some people might not say it in the best way, but not everyone has your gift for speaking tactfully. If multiple people have expressed the same concerns over a period of time, it’s reasonable to assume that they may be onto something.
The Solution: Think of a few people you actually trust. Keep your circle small, so you don’t get overwhelmed. Once you have your board of trustees, actually listen to them. If you carefully vet these people beforehand, you won’t have to worry if they have good intentions.
3). You’ve Alienated People
This can come from #1 above, but it can also be just because life happens, friends drift apart, people get busy. For Sags, you may not even notice someone is gone from your life for a long time. You’re too busy doing your own thing, until you turn around and realize you’re alone. It’s scary, but it’s fixable!
If you tried #1 or 2 above and found that you have no one to ask for help, you may need to start here.
The Solution: Reach out to people. It’s easy to tell yourself not to bother, that too much time has passed, they won’t want to hear from you, etc. However, you’ll never know unless you try, and I bet you’ll be surprised by how many people respond. Either way, at least you’ll know! Contact an old friend today, for no other reason than to catch up.
4). You’re Trying Too Hard
“The Archer” is not just a name (or a great Taylor Swift song, who is a Sagittarius). Sags are competitive and although they are independent, they love to be noticed for their hard work. This is okay, we all do! But Sags can take it a little too far.
Remember that kid in school who would climb halfway up the school building, then scream for everyone to watch them? That kid was probably a Sagittarius, and you may be doing some form of this right now.
The Solution: Get honest with yourself. What are you doing that needs to be seen? Who really needs to see it? Is what you’re doing even necessary? Don’t try too hard to make sure other people are paying attention. Just do your own thing and if they watch, cool. If not, they’re missing out!
5). You’re Disorganized
While Sagittarius can literally do it all, they can also have it all spread out in their mind and/or bedroom. This is your wake up call, friend: clean your damn room. Organize your desk.
This may seem unrelated to your life problem, but being organized can help you in all problems. Just having a clean, clutter-free space can do wonders for your mood.
You could also be mentally disorganized, which is arguably worse. Give yourself a schedule. Make yourself a timeline.
The Solution: Make a list of what needs to be de-cluttered, from junk drawers to your computer to your mind. Just making a list will help your mind. Now get to work! Start with small things, let those encourage you. Don’t overwhelm yourself, but aim to clean or organize one area per day.
