“Hey, how you doing? What’s your name, what’s your birthday, what’s your sign?” OHHHHHH NOOOOOOO, not a (insert any sign of your choice), I dated one of them before and OH MY GOD…blah, blah blah. Yes, yes, we all have heard or told the horror story of a former love interest that fell under a zodiac sign that made you feel (as the kids say) a way. I too am guilty (hence this blog on this day at this time) of said offense and here we are. I caught myself before I made myself look like a jackass. Why is this the way things are done? Glad you asked. Here’s what I surmise. As the past mistakes we’ve made have us on high alert on what kind of people and situations we don’t want to get caught in again we make decisions on ALL PEOPLE we meet on certain things. Zodiac signs is one of them. You don’t have to follow astrology in the least bit to hear a certain sign or person’s date of birth to go oh no…I dealt with one of “them” before and automatically go to rule them out. Sigh, I again am guilty of such musings. I have just in this moment yelled at myself to write this blog and get my shit together because ALL PEOPLE OF THE SAME SIGN ARE NOT THE SAME!!! Yes it’s in all caps, no I am not yelling at you but at myself and you if it applies.
You see, it’s a defense mechanism to fall back into old habits, (not necessarily good ones) to avoid things that have caused you hurt in the past, yes that goes for people too. So I find out that this guy I am kinda sweet on is of a certain zodiac sign. Immediately insert the theme music from any show where you did not win the prize. Then I had to catch myself, no no no. We will not do that. So far there has been no indication that he is anything different than what he has shown you. Until the moment he told you what he was you didn’t know and it didn’t matter now did it. Yes, I am giving myself the business, because well I can. I had to stop and think about that because so what he was born on that day under that sign, he has not exhibited any things to raise any real red flags.
I mean really, how can you be fretting about something based on what day and month a person was born??? I dare say it’s easy and people do it all the time. I however, will not, any more, well not gonna actively participate in this practice, nope nope nope…am I? I don’t want to. Is it hard to break old habits? Well yeah, but why? Why are we so consumed with how things COULD go without even trying to see it through based on just what it is at this very time and place???? Why are we so conditioned to make mountains out of molehills when we know that it’s not necessary? Are we all crazy? No, well, maybe but that’s not the point. We or maybe it’s just me that can honestly say that it’s hard sometimes to get out of your own way, get out of your own head.
I would like to think that I am of the age and mindset that a persons zodiac sign does not indicate that this current person will be like the assholes of the past. I mean everyone is made different right? Zodiacs signs are not exclusive to anyone being a jerk, nor totally inclusive that everyone born under that sign will be the same. I’m pretty much, no, I am totally talking to myself because I know that no one else goes through this right? Right…so get it together lady. Quit being jaded, enjoy life as it comes and until he shows you signs of being a narcist, liar, scumbag and loser then relax….yeah ok…I got my eyes on you sir of certain zodiac sign…..I am watching and listening closely….
