They say friends are the family we get to choose. And I share this viewpoint too. I truly believe that friends can be your salvation from the drudgery and the hardships of life. But, not every friend you ever make would be like that anchor in your life. In fact, most of the friends we have are toxic to some degree or the other. Many of us live in oblivion to the amount of toxicity we expose ourselves to every day, through these so-called friends. But the fact is, once we have realized that someone is toxic for us, we have to let them go. That is the only way for us to continue living our life without harming ourselves (through their influence). Because no matter how hard you try, you can’t change a toxic person. It is entirely up to them and in most cases, they don’t care about you enough to change.
So yes, the only option that we have while dealing with a toxic presence in our lives is to let go. As simple as that sounds, we know that this can be one of the toughest things that a person has to do. And frankly, most people can’t do it all. Or if they do manage to do it, it is only after weeks, months and perhaps years of coaxing and failed attempts. And, like everything else in life, how we deal with toxic people also depends quite a lot on our zodiac sign. You see, there are some zodiac signs who have no qualms whatsoever in completely boycotting the toxic people in their life. Once they know that someone isn’t good for them, it doesn’t take much longer for them to take the next step (which many of us fumble at).
And why is it that some zodiac signs are better at cutting people out of their lives than others? The reason is simple, their zodiac means that they have certain qualities which just make it easier for them to let go of people without it affecting them too much. For starters, these are the zodiac signs which are defined as brave. Because it takes a lot of bravery to stand up to a toxic person and tell them that you’re done with them. Not everyone can do this. And secondly (and perhaps more important) is the fact these are the zodiac who is not afraid of being on their own. They don’t need to be surrounded by people all the time to feel happy or secure. They prefer their own company rather than a company which is toxic to them. Because once you start weeding out the toxic people out of your social circle, you will find it to be shrinking at an alarming rate. Obviously, it doesn’t mean that you will never find good people; just that you might have to spend some considerable time alone before you do.
Here are the 5 Zodiac signs who find it easier than most to let go of toxicity:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
An Aries truly believes that you don’t need a large group to be happy and that it is better to have a few close friends than a lot of frenemies. Also, the one thing that an Aries doesn’t want is to be hurt by people. So if anyone hurts them even once, they make sure that they can’t do it again. An Aries will cut out toxic people at once, without any qualms and any second thoughts. This is why you are advised to tread carefully while dealing with an Aries.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
A Taurus puts a little more thought and consideration into whether they want to keep you in their life or not. If they observe enough instances where they can make out that you are more trouble than help, they will make the decision to let you go. Yes, they will put a lot of thought into it, and weigh the pros and cons of their decision before making it. But once they decide against you, good luck ever getting back in their company. The time during which they are contemplating letting you go, they’d maintain a certain emotional and physical distance, but it is nothing compared to what comes afterward when they have decided to move on.
