I'm a Taurus/Aries cusp. Directly on the 0° line, but I'm mostly Taurus. I've noticed that no matter how hard I try to please everyone else, 80% of the time everything goes unnoticed and I don't even get so much as a thank you. Why can't my stubborn-ness be used to prevent that from happening instead of helping it reoccur?
(I assume that you’re a Taurus and those 80% doesn’t include your family)
How could you use something that wasn’t meant to be used this way unless pleasing people is the aim of your life. There should be zero doubts about the fact that Taurus are generous people, but they need something in return, or at least little appreciation or someone or something that acknowledge their devotion, resources and efforts they put in. It shouldn’t hard for people to do that. Other thing is that you should understand that helping people is an amazing thing, it shows how beautiful soul you are but you can’t kill yourself for that. There’s fine line between pleasing and helping. Learn to differentiate between people, conditions and priorities.
(You know there’s a girl I’m doing everything for her and family and still not getting a single thank you for a single damn thing, whether it’s financial, emotional or any other kind of support she doesn’t acknowledge anything, I just want to make sure that she’s back on her feet)
