You’re learning new things about yourself and you’re slowly realizing what you want to pursue and how you want to better take care of yourself. The sad truth is that not everyone around you will be supportive of this, Cancer. You will step on some of those you’ve deemed closest to you and create distance with others as you grow but what you need to be open to when this happens is the possibility that their role in your life might be over, or just not the same as it used to be. Consider who you’ve outgrown and welcome those who will grow with you.

At first glance, the song title “Better for Me” might seem a bit selfish, but you must be quick to remind yourself that you do not owe it to anyone to stick by them when you’re pursuing your own growth and they might be hindering you from it, and that going your separate ways is not a selfishness—it’s merely a symptom of growth.

Within you is a light that is brighter than the belittling words of those who are afraid of your potential. Within you is an entire universe, just waiting to be built.

Re-evaluating relationships and cutting those that no longer help you is a form of self-care. When life gets more exhausting and more demanding, you need to take better care of yourself.
