If you were born between January 20th and February 18th, then you are an Aquarius. As an Aquarius, your most harmful emotional habit is often pretending to be unaffected by emotions. You carry a strong sense of independence and pride yourself on being emotionally detached. However, this can lead to bottling up your feelings and not allowing yourself to process them in a healthy way. This can lead to unhealthy coping mechanisms such as binge drinking or overeating.
Why It’s Harmful
Pretending to be unaffected by emotions is dangerous because it prevents you from understanding what you’re feeling and how best to cope with it. When we don’t allow ourselves to feel our emotions, we don’t have the opportunity to learn from them or grow from them. We become stagnant in our emotional growth and remain stuck in patterns of behavior that no longer serve us well.
How To Break The Habit
The first step in breaking this habit is to recognize when you are doing it. Notice when you start pushing away your feelings and take a moment to pause and observe what is happening internally for you. Once you’ve identified the emotion that’s coming up, try to label it without judgment or shame (e.g., I’m feeling anxious). This simple act of labeling can help bring awareness and understanding of your feelings so that you can move forward in a healthier way.
Another way to break this habit is to practice self-care activities such as journaling, yoga, meditation, or talking with a therapist or trusted friend about what’s going on for you emotionally. These activities will help create space for processing your feelings instead of pushing them away which can lead to more clarity on what needs attention in your life right now.
Finally, focus on building healthy relationships with people who accept and validate your feelings instead of judging or invalidating them. Surrounding yourself with supportive people who understand where you’re coming from can help create an environment where it’s safe for you express yourself without fear of being judged or shamed for having emotions.
If you were born between February 19th and March 20th, then you are a Pisces! As a Pisces, one of the most harmful emotional habits you can have is avoiding conflict at all costs – even if it means sacrificing important parts of yourself along the way. You may think that avoiding conflict will make things easier but ultimately it only serves as a short-term solution while creating long-term problems down the line.
Why It’s Harmful
Avoiding conflict doesn’t actually resolve anything – it just delays dealing with whatever issue is at hand until later when things may have gotten worse or out of control already! Not addressing conflicts head-on also creates resentment within relationships which can eventually lead to bigger issues down the line if left unchecked over time. In addition, avoiding conflict often leads us into compromising our own values which causes us to lose our sense of identity over time as we give away pieces of ourselves bit by bit until there’s nothing left but emptiness inside us!
How To Break The Habit
The first step in breaking this habit is recognizing when we’re doing it – noticing when we start avoiding uncomfortable conversations instead of facing them head-on like we should be doing! Once recognized, we need to make sure that we focus on communicating our needs clearly so that everyone involved knows what they need before entering into any type of dialogue together about whatever issue has arisen between them (this will help keep things less heated). Additionally, remember that not everything has be solved immediately – sometimes just acknowledging each other’s perspectives without judgment can go a long way towards resolving conflicts more peacefully over time! Lastly, focus on building trust within relationships so that both parties feel safe enough expressing their thoughts openly without fear being judged harshly for having different opinions than others around them – this helps create an atmosphere conducive towards resolving conflicts rather than avoiding them altogether!
