What You REFUSE To Admit About Yourself, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

What You REFUSE To Admit About Yourself, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

You need to face the music.

Here’s what you refuse to admit to yourself and how you can face the truth, based on your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

You won’t admit that sometimes you make terrible decisions. It’s just that you get so excited about something that you don’t always think it through. You’re impulsive and impatient and those two qualities can get you in trouble, especially when they cause you to something reckless and irresponsible.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

You refuse to admit that you could be wrong. In your world, you’re never misinformed, blinded by emotion or even pig-headed. It must be great to always be right, even when you’re not and to never feel the need to compromise or apologize.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

You won’t own the fact that you’re a flake. It’s not that you’re trying to be a jerk, it’s just that you tend to over schedule, double-book, and you never allow yourself enough time to do what you want to do. You have trouble being honest with people if you think it’s going to hurt them, and yet, standing them with a last minute excuse can be hurtful.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

You refuse to face the truth that you can be amazingly clingy. While it’s true that you’re very open to how you’re feeling at any given moment, you’re not quite as forthcoming with the fact that you suck at letting go. You hang on long after someone has tried to shake you loose. If you grip someone that tightly when you’re together, you’ll suffocate them, and the only goal they’ll have is how to get themselves out.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

What you don’t seem to know is that you can be so full of yourself that you come off as arrogant and pretentious. You think you know best in every situation and that everybody else has their head up their butts. You’re spectacular but not when you’re talking down to people and acting like an asshat.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

You don’t like to admit that you care (desperately) about what other people think. You’re very critical of yourself and you worry that people will think that you’re not good enough. But you can’t do things just because you think that’s what other people want you to do; you should do what will make you happy and fulfilled.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

You won’t admit that you get down just like everybody else and that sometimes you need to ask for help. You don’t need to be happy all the time so people will like you, nor is it a weakness to ask for assistance. The people who care about you don’t just love you because you’re a robot who doesn’t have feelings and is completely self-sufficient — they like you for being the emotional human that you are.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

You refuse to see that you can be extremely rigid. If someone doesn’t comply to your way of doing or being, you’re done with them. You don’t believe in second chances and you’re not great with forgiveness. Cutting someone out of your life because you caught them in a minor white lie isn’t being just, it’s being a tyrant.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

You have no idea how incredibly self-centered you are. You think just because you think of people and give them gifts that you’re selfless, but you only do nice things to get a good reaction and for people to think positively of you. It’s not altruistic, it’s manipulative.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

You won’t face the fact that you’re lonely. You try to pretend that you’re so focused on succeeding that you don’t have any time for relationships, but the truth is you’re scared you’ll be rejected and you’re afraid to put yourself out there. You’re trying to protect yourself from pain but the pain of isolation is even worse.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

You won’t admit that sometimes you like to be contrary just to go against what’s expected of you or what other people are doing. Controversy for the sake of controversy is kind of pointless. Don’t worry — no one is going to take advantage of your good nature; you don’t need to buck up just to show you’ve got some backbone.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

You don’t like to let on to yourself that you like to exaggerate the truth for a better story. Reality can be so boring, and being 100 percent about the facts isn’t your thing. You’d rather put a spin on things to make them more interesting and this is why you’re so creative: because you naturally think outside the box.

The Nine Fake Sick Day Excuses Your Boss Is Most Likely to Buy

The Nine Fake Sick Day Excuses Your Boss Is Most Likely to Buy

I know YOU’VE never faked a sick day, but believe it or not, some people have. And when they put on their “I’m on my death bed” voice to call in sick, now we know what THEY should be saying. Again, them, not you. You’re honest.

A new survey asked 1,000 bosses which sick day excuses they’re most likely to believe. So here are the best ones to fake . . .

  1.  The flu.
  2.  Throwing out your back, or having back pain.
  3.  An accidental injury. Too bad they weren’t more specific. A broken toe? A paper cut? There’s so much to choose from when you’re faking it, a little guidance would have been nice. (???)
  4.  Stress.
  5.  Surgery.
  6.  Depression.
  7.  Anxiety.
  8.  A cold.
  9.  A migraine.

One more thing to keep in mind. Even though the flu is the most believable excuse, only about 25% of bosses say they buy it. Which means that no matter WHAT excuse you use, there’s at least a 75% chance your boss won’t buy it.

Dancing Gangnam Style Helps You Deal With Pain?

Dancing Gangnam Style Helps You Deal With Pain?

You’ve been doing group dances since you were a kid. You started with the “Hokey Pokey” and the “Chicken Dance” . . . graduated to the “Gangnam” . . . and now you kind of have the urge to learn the Whip / Nae Nae.

And without realizing it, each of those dances is making you better at dealing with PAIN.

A new study out of Oxford University in England found that people who do group dances have higher pain tolerances than people who don’t.

Their theory is that the dances are both good physical exercise AND good bonding experiences. That makes your body release endorphins . . . like it would when you’re playing a team sport.

And endorphins have a lasting effect of making you better at dealing with pain.

In other words, dances like the Macarena or Gangnam Style might help you take a punch to the FACE. Possibly for suggesting that everyone dance to them?

Let’s say you get into a massive fight with your boyfriend or girlfriend, they DUMP you, and storm out. As they go, they leave the door open and your dog runs away and never comes back. Which are you more upset about?

According to a new survey, people would be more upset about losing their DOG than ending their relationship.

On a pain scale of one to 10, people say losing their dog is a 9.1 . . . and a break up is an 8.8.

Here are a few more results from the survey . . .

38% of people admit they love their dog more than their boyfriend or girlfriend . . . or even their spouse.

Half say they trust their dog and their spouse equally.

And 71% probably wouldn’t date someone if their dog didn’t like them.

A Controversial Study Says There Are Six Types of People Who Become Obese

A Controversial Study Says There Are Six Types of People Who Become Obese

Researchers in England recently looked at profiles of more than 4,000 people who were obese. And the results are causing some controversy, because they claim that almost all of the people fell into one of these six categories . . .

  1.  Young guys who drank too much. They had some healthy habits, and maybe even worked out. But they still gained weight because of all the alcohol.
  2.  Young women who overate. Just like the guys, they were healthy in some ways. But they were more likely to get their extra calories from food than booze.
  3.  Middle-aged people who were unhappy and anxious. Most of them were women, who were also more likely to suffer from insomnia, anxiety, and depression.
  4.  Seniors with chronic health issues, like arthritis or diabetes. They mostly had low levels of depression and anxiety though, and tended to be HAPPY with life in general.
  5.  Older people with money. They had some healthy habits, but drank more than average, and usually had high blood pressure.
  6.  People who were REALLY unhealthy. Meaning they didn’t exercise AND ate like crap. They were more likely than any other group to have issues with pain and fatigue, and were also more likely to struggle financially.
