The 5 Most Insecure Zodiac Signs: Are You One Of Them?It would be an incredible thing if we were all able to feel great about ourselves all the time and go through life with a bounce in our step. Sadly, that is not the case for most of us. While we put on our confident and content faces for the outside world, many of us still harbor many negative thoughts, both about our appearance and our personality. Everyone has certain insecurities; what are yours? Are you one of the most insecure zodiac signs?
These negative and self-deprecating ideas and comments which flood our minds are better known as insecurities. These insecurities aren’t ideas that come and go on whim but are rather notions about ourselves that have become ingrained into our psyche over time. When we are continually presented with an image of how we should be and when that image contradicts parts of us, doubts about our normality and worth start to arise.
The 5 Most Insecure Zodiac Signs
Now if these doubts and worries about yourself sound familiar to you, well that’s because almost everyone has their own insecurities. It’s easy to look at someone’s life and wish you had it as easy as them, but remember that someone is likely looking at your life in the same way and appreciating the same traits that you criticize yourself for. While even the proudest zodiac signs will have experienced some sort of insecurity, the 5 signs in this list are the zodiac signs most susceptible to thinking negatively about themselves.
The emotionally-sensitive zodiac sign Cancer is most prone to feelings of insecurity. They care a lot about other people’s opinion and tend to take any comments extremely personally. Their tendency to spend a lot of time in their home environment along with their highly imaginative minds means that some small constructive criticism can transform into a whole assault on their existence. This sign needs constant reassurance from family and friends, otherwise the insecurities build-up.
For people who are renowned for their intelligence and competence, you might not expect that Virgo makes it so high up this list, especially as they are so harsh with others at times. However, the most critical zodiac sign holds themselves to the highest, and sometimes impossible, standards. When they realise there are unchangeable parts of their character, it can be difficult to come to terms with the fact that perfection isn't attainable. What makes it worse is that they think other people see them in the same light.
Just by looking at Libra’s zodiac personality traits, one ought to see that insecurity plays an underlying role in their tendencies. In group situations, Libras are always looking to please the majority and receive social approval as they aren’t confident in their own appraisal. Their inability to pick a side is not only symptomatic of their desire to please others but also of their insecurity in their own capabilities.
The water sign Pisces is celebrated as the zodiac most capable of forming deeper connections and they do well when surrounded by others. As long as they have someone close to speak to, a Pisces will keep a positive mentality. When they are alone however, they begin doubting themselves with nobody to vocalize these worries to and these insecurities can quickly spiral out of control.
You wouldn’t think that one of the most independent zodiac signs of the horoscope is also one of the most insecure but the Aquarius personality is more sensitive than it lets on. Being one of the most intelligent zodiac signs, they often like holding a condescending and patronizing tone with others. This only forms part of their façade, however, as they attempt to convince others (and themselves) that they’re completely content with all areas of life - especially emotionally.
