It is effortless to become attached to someone, something, or an idea. That is because it gives you pleasure or some kind of purpose to keep hanging onto it. It is not hard to imagine why the idea of letting go of a partner is challenging even when the signs show that the relationship is over. When your partner breaks up with you unexpectedly, that is heartbreaking, and it will take a long time to get go of them emotionally. Even when you are the one to break up with them, that is also hard because even though the relationship is no longer working out, that does not shut off your emotions.
When it comes to letting go of ideas that you had about something, that is also difficult to do. Letting go of an idea that you had that isn’t working out for something is hard. That may also be that you struggle to accept defeat in that case but being attached to an idea is part of that reason. Losing a particular item is difficult as well emotionally. Everyone has a hard time letting go of something. What is your reason that you cannot let go? Let’s find that out based on your zodiac sign.
Aries – You Must Get What You Want
Aries is ambitious and is all about self-preservation. Therefore, Aries will not give up on going after something they want until they get it. If that is you, you understand that. However, if you fail to attain a goal, whether it is winning a game or having the intent to make a certain amount of money with your business in a timeframe – giving up is never an option. That is because you will never accept defeat and will keep aiming high until you get it. You also know if someone from a good place tells you to move on and focus on something else, if you keep facing failure, you will get angry and ignore them.
Taurus – Once You Are Attached to Something You Cannot Give It Up
Are you a Taurus? If so, you know very well that it takes a lot of time to develop an attachment to someone or something because of your inflexible nature. However, once you do become attached to something or someone, they become a part of you. Losing them is devastating to you because you will feel as if you lose a part of yourself. That means a failed relationship or a lost item to you feels devastating as you think there is a missing part of you. You will grieve over that lost part of you for a very long time.
Gemini – Losing Any Friend Is Difficult
Gemini, your mutable nature makes anyone wonder how you would struggle to lose something or someone since you don’t like to make commitments. You are not the emotional type either. However, if a friend ghosts you or no longer wants to associate with you, that is very difficult for you. You may appear not to become attached to any of your friends. However, the truth is that there is a part of you that becomes attached to them. When that friend disappears, a part of you does too, which makes you very sad.
Cancer – Your Emotions Cause You to Struggle to Let Go
If there is a sign that would struggle to let anything go on an emotional level would be Cancer. Cancer is the most passionate sign of the zodiac as it is a cardinal water sign. If you are a Cancer, you understand that very well. You will struggle to let go of a failing relationship, whether it is a friendship or a romantic partnership because you cannot cope with the intense sadness that comes with it ending. Therefore, you will do what you can to hold onto it even if the relationship is toxic. If that individual is no longer in your life, it will take you a long time to grieve the loss. Even if you are in a new relationship, a part of you will keep grieving that loss.
Leo – Your Ego Won’t Let You Detach if You Are Not Ready
Leo, the last thing you want to do is deal with anything that can hurt your ego. When it comes to you struggling to let go, you must be the one to agree to give something up first. That is why you must always throw in the last word if you get into an argument or you will not rest. You will also find yourself becoming more attached to someone if they walk away from you before you can let them go. Therefore, they will not be able to leave you quickly. If they ghost you, you will do everything in your power to find a way to stay in touch with them. Your ego cannot handle it otherwise. If you successfully do that, they will accuse you of stalking them, which will hurt your ego even more.
Virgo – Your Perfectionist Nature Won’t Allow You to Give Something up You Worked Hard For
Virgo, you never make impulsive decisions, and you have a perfectionist nature which is why you work hard into building something. You will work hard to build a business or establish a successful relationship. You are patient, so you are willing to take your time with making something because you will not accept failure of any kind. However, what if the business fails, or what if the relationship fails? What happens then? You will do everything in your power to revive it because you cannot stand the idea of making the wrong decision when you build it. If there is no way you can restore something, you will feel like a failure, which is the worst way for a Virgo to feel.
Libra – You Can’t Get Out of Your Comfort Zone Easily
Libra, you need peace and calmness, and the idea of letting something go scares you because it involves you leaving your comfort zone. Therefore, you would be the type not to toss away an item that is getting old, and that is no longer usable. You would rather do what you can to fix it instead. If you have to toss it away, you will take plenty of time to prepare yourself for doing that since inching out of your comfort zone scares you. When it comes to relationships, it is not a surprise you would do what you could to hang onto old ones no matter how toxic.
Scorpio – The Idea of Letting Someone Go Scares You
Scorpio, you are very intense and have a possessive nature. Unlike Libra, you would not hesitate to buy a new item if the old one no longer works – unless that item has a strong sentimental meaning to you. However, when it comes to relationships, you will not let them go. The idea of losing someone frightens you, and you will do whatever you can to hold onto them. Even the thought of losing your partner to someone else scares you so much, which is why the idea of it makes you jealous. If a relationship has to end, you have to be the one to terminate it for a reason you have, not the other way around.
Sagittarius – You Can Physically Let Go but Your Mind Won’t Do It
Sagittarius, you are one of the signs that can separate yourself from someone or something physically. The idea of going on one adventure after another appeals to you more than hanging onto someone or something that no longer serves you. However, that does not mean you can forget about them. They are always on your mind because they remind you of so many things. If you travel somewhere where you went with your ex-partner or ex-friend, that will remind you of them. If you see a movie that you saw with someone from the past, the same will happen. When you are reminded that you are no longer with something or someone wherever you are, that makes you sad.
Capricorn – Once You Attach Yourself to Something or Someone, You Struggle to Let Go
Capricorn, you do not attach to people or items too easily because that is not who you are. You are primarily interested in reaching goals and in working. However, once you attach yourself to someone, you will expect to be with them for life, whether it is a partner or a friend. The idea of letting them go in the future scares you because you don’t think that you will find anyone so special elsewhere. You would do anything to fix a problem with the relationship than to let it go. The same goes for a goal. If you are determined to go after a plan, you will not allow anything to stop you. Once you become attached to something, the bottom line is you expect it to be yours for good.
Aquarius – You Can Handle Letting Go Because You Believe it Will Come Back to You
Aquarius, you are not the type to become attached to anything or anyone. However, if you do, you can handle losing them. There is one reason for that. You believe in miracles meaning that you think that someone or something you lost will return to you in one way or another. That does not mean you won’t be sad if they leave you, but you will convince yourself to move forward because you’ll believe they will return to you when it is meant to happen. That helps you to move on, even though, in reality, that rarely happens.
Pisces – You Are Terrified Your Secrets Will Spill or Go to Waste
Pisces, you are secretive and don’t like to show your vulnerable side until you trust someone. Not only will you show your weak side to them, but you will find it within you to share secrets you have with them. That is because you have no reason to believe that they will disappear. However, if they do, you will feel more anxiety over sadness because of worrying that they will spill your secrets or those secrets going to waste. When it comes to items you lose, you will experience a lot of sadness and go through grief by losing something that means a lot. If the thing did not mean much to you, you would not have an issue with replacing it.
Letting go is hard, and it is harder for some than others. However, the truth is that in life, nothing stays forever, and that goes for relationships, items, and ideas. Regardless of how difficult it is to let go of something, you have to have the expectation that at some point that it will. If you prepare yourself for that no matter how secure something or someone appears to you at the moment, you will not be so surprised when it does happen. It won’t mean you won’t grieve for the loss in your way, but it will ease the blow somewhat.
