Selfishness isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It can be a beautiful thing, especially after you’ve neglected your needs for so long. That’s why you should care more about yourself moving into this new year. Here are a few zodiacs who need to be more selfish in 2024:
Pisces, you always put others before yourself because you want everyone to be happy. But you need to consider your happiness too. It’s not selfish to make decisions based on your own well-being for a change. No one is going to blame you. And if they do, that’s because they liked you better as a pushover, as someone who would do their bidding without complaint. You don’t need people like that in your life. You need to surround yourself with people who push you toward happiness, who encourage you to do whatever is best for yourself because they want to see you grow and thrive.
Leo, people might assume that you always do what’s best for yourself since you are so independent — but you care deeply about your reputation. You want others to like you. You crave their validation, so sometimes you end up making decisions that’ll look the best from the outside instead of the decision that is best for yourself. But you need to change that moving forward. You need to make the selfish choice, the one that will bring you the most fulfillment in the end. Remember, it doesn’t matter how happy people think you are. It matters how happy you actually are, when no one else is looking.
Cancer, you are always worried about whether your family and friends are doing okay — but they can survive without you. That shouldn’t make you feel bad about not being needed. It should make you feel free because you don’t have to spend every waking moment thinking about them. You’re allowed to think about yourself. You’re allowed to make decisions that will make you happy without stopping to take their thoughts into consideration. Not everything involves them. Some things are about you and only you.
Libra, you are one of the kindest signs in the zodiac. You never want to cause any conflict because you would rather keep the peace. But sometimes, you have to push against the status quo. You can’t go along with whatever is happening, simply because it’s easier than using your voice and admitting that you aren’t happy. You can’t go with the flow when it’s taking you further and further away from your intended destination. It’s okay to tell others no, to push against them, to make them upset by doing what you want over what they want. This is your life. Not theirs. They don’t get to decide what is best for you. Only you can decide that yourself.
Gemini, you’re a social butterfly. You can get along with anyone, and part of that is because you anticipate the needs of others and provide what you think they want from you. You try hard to remain likable, fun, and carefree. But you don’t have to be the person everyone else wants you to be. You can simply be yourself. Embrace whatever your heart is pulling you toward. Forget what the rest of the world will say about you and do what you think is right because at the end of the day, your happiness matters. Not their opinion.
