Don't worry if you find yourself in a minority of one, and don't let it change what you are doing. Being the kind of person who stands out from the crowd it is inevitable that you will be criticized by those who would prefer everyone to think and act alike.
Someone you live or work with needs your support and maybe a shoulder to cry on and being the nice Cancer you are you will do what you can to assist them. It may be emotionally draining but you have been through this kind of scene many times before. You are in a restless mood at the moment, unable to get comfortable in any one place. By why should that be a problem?
Why should you stay in one location? Be more adventurous. Get out and about. See and be seen. Boredom is the one thing to be avoided. Why are some people so unable to see sense? Whatever the reason you will have to deal with someone whose grasp of logic is non-existent. Stay calm, make your point, then get away from them as quickly as you can. You are under no obligation to stick around.
It may be hard to think straight today but it's essential if you don't want to get caught up in the kind of emotional scenes that most people seek to avoid. You cannot stop others ranting and raving and making a scene but you don't have to join in. You may be tempted to hit back at someone who is giving you a hard time but is that such a good idea? It might be just what they are hoping for, because then it gives them the excuse they have been waiting for to start an open fight.
Someone you thought was a friend will show their true colours and try to convert you to their way of thinking today and you won't be pleased. Let them know that in future they must only give their opinions when they are asked for — in other words, never! Someone in a position of authority will get a bit emotional today and you must do what you can to calm them down.
Not only will they appreciate your advice but they will mark you down as someone who can be trusted and that's surely good news for you.
You will have lots of fun today but you may feel a bit guilty about it because not everyone is as happy or fortunate as you. Do what you can to help others get over whatever it is that is bothering them but don't let their mood bring you down. Negative feelings may be natural but you don't have to let them take over your life.
Certain emotions may be difficult to deal with today,but deal with them you must because they have been kept under wraps for too long. Confront whatever it is that pains you.
