You get into a lot of trouble for your short temper and stubborn nature. You live in a negative world sometimes that people don’t want to be a part of.

Positivity and optimism are something you struggle with a lot and add to that your temper tantrums, and you have got a recipe for a disaster.

Focus on calming yourself down, and try to stop yourself from having an emotional or aggressive reaction to everything. Constant tantrums and stubbornness are not going to do any good to your life.

You feel the need to control everyone and everything in your life. And when things don’t go the way you planned you take it out on the people you care about.

The hardest thing you’ll come to understand is you can’t control people and situations aren’t always going to run smoothly. Learn to embrace it. Unplanned situations in life are what keep it exciting.

You ruin your life by settling. You settle in love because you are unsure of what you want. You settle in life because you fear change. You settle in your career because you are sticking with something that isn’t making you happy.

And because of this, you are usually the one that hurts people the worst. Because you are indecisive about your own life you tend to drag others through the confusion and hurt really good people along the way.

You are an emotional rollercoaster and you get easily lost in how you feel about people. Sometimes when you think you’ve met the right person you put them before yourself and love them a little more than you need to.

It’s easy to get lost in love. But be careful you don’t lose yourself to it.

You ruin your life by closing yourself off and hiding your emotions.

You ruin your life thinking vulnerability is a sign of weakness. You are very good at appearing heartless and pretending you don’t care.

As someone who puts their emotional needs second in life, you should be wary of not closing yourself off too much because there will come a time when you’ll be overcome with a state of being lonely.

Remember, emotions don’t make you seem weak, but denying that you have any does.

6. Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)

You ruin your life by being too hard on yourself.

How 12 Self Sabotaging Signs Of The Zodiac Constellation Wreak Their Own Life

You tend to put others before yourself and not make yourself a priority. While it’s selfless and people admire you for your kind heart, your ability to love others and love them deeply doesn’t reflect the relationship you have with yourself.

You are the first to criticize who you are or point out your flaws without building yourself up to the way you are. You are your worst enemy as well as the solution to that.

7. Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)

You ruin your life by trying too hard to appease others and not asking for what you want and need.

How 12 Self Sabotaging Signs Of The Zodiac Constellation Wreak Their Own Life

As kind as you are and as much as everyone loves you, people take advantage of you and walk all over you. You hold your emotions in trying to be selfless but then it all builds up and it comes out very nasty and unkind.

Sometimes you hurt the people you love most repressing your emotions and not wanting to face your problems.

You are the toughest sign to get along with. You are painfully stubborn and don’t forgive people easily. Your heart isn’t something that’s easy to win over but once someone does, they have your love and loyalty for life.

But your greatest flaw is you’re a little bit selfish and you hurt people who care about you in attempts to simply look out for number 1.

You’re so afraid of failing that you don’t do anything at all and you stay frozen in the same spot. While you have a lot of great ideas sometimes you get lost in all of them.

You don’t seem to focus or get much done at all. Your indecisiveness, procrastination, and confusion make you an extremely unfocused person. Focus on one task at hand and go from there.

How 12 Self Sabotaging Signs Of The Zodiac Constellation Wreak Their Own Life

You ruin your life by putting pressure on yourself instead of enjoying the journey. You are someone who is unbelievably hard on yourself and a little too focused sometimes.

You are the person who is always on the go and doing something or the other. But don’t forget to slow down and live life a little bit or you’ll miss out on the things that are more important than goals.

You tend to keep everything to yourself and you’re your own worst enemy. You don’t forgive yourself for your past and you allow it to dictate your future, carrying unnecessary baggage along the way.

You tend to push really good people away because you think you’re better off alone than with someone who could be good for you.

12. Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)

You ruin your life by choosing the wrong people.

How 12 Self Sabotaging Signs Of The Zodiac Constellation Wreak Their Own Life

You choose toxic people and habits. As someone who genuinely means well and has probably the best heart out of all the zodiac signs, you tend to gravitate toward the wrong people who dim your light a little bit and drain you.

When it comes to habits, you deal with pain in your life by choosing all the wrong things to cope with. You hurt yourself more each time because you think you deserve pain.
