learning-ok-):

so on friday I LITERALLY ditched a family dinner and a play afterwards to go hang out with a friend instead

and I mean I was all ready to do this, was /at/ the restaurant and everything when I had a deep seeded realization that no part of me could be in this restaurant or around these people for any more time than I had already spent or else everything was going to be Very Bad Very Quickly 

so, I asked mom for the car keys and I booked it to the nearest safe spot i.e. back in to the car with me. 

I was sitting there trying to figure out what I was going to do and how I was going to escape/get out of this (I can’t drive) or potentially go back in there and deal with it, since it was my grandfather’s birthday and it felt very rude to ditch, even though I’ve never had a great relationship history with my grandparents. 

that’s when I got a text message from a friend of mine, informing me that she wasn’t going to make the play we were headed to afterwards. 

I debated telling her my situation but I just let it slide, asking her why she wasn’t going to go, and she replied with something along the lines of “i’m so close to loosing my shit right now” so I responded with the easiest thing I could think to get the message across without actually explaining what I was going through: “same” 

She and I texted back and fourth a few times and she offered to come pick me up and hang out instead. 

several minutes and saying goodbye to my family later, I was in the car with her and almost started crying because of how bad I felt about leaving the situation and how good i felt right then, after removing myself from it. 

almost as though now that I was feeling better, I should go back and subject myself to the horrors that I was experiencing in the restaurant because surely I just wasn’t equipped to handle it right then and there, and now that I was better, I could. Or perhaps I was just faking it? 

I didn’t tell this to my friend until an hour into us hanging out, and we talked briefly about how you should accept yourself for your choices, and understanding when you’re doing something you can’t handle. 

I just wanted to share that little tidbit, because it’s terrible feeling guilty or bad that you can’t do something, and are somehow able to do something else almost INSTANTLY with so much ease. 

The thing to remind yourself of, is that the environment, the people, and just that entire situation was /making/ you feel the way you were feeling, and you are capable of doing things that do not make you upset. if you were to go back in there the moment you felt all that relief, thinking you could handle it since you no longer feel bad, I guarantee you will be right back to feeling the way you were before you left.

it is perfectly alright to remove yourself from situations if it means you can function, and you don’t have to feel bad about it. 

I’m still learning this lesson myself and I think this was the first time I was actually happier with my decision to leave than to go through with the “let’s just get it over with” scenario that I was putting myself in, do not force yourself to do things if you’re not going to have a good time. 

nobody will be mad at you for leaving, 

you did not need to be there in the first place,

do not feel guilty,

you look out for you.

People can oversimplify Aries sometimes. Yes, Aries is a sign that is known to be straightforward and simple, but Aries as a sign isn’t simple. If Aries was simple, it would be easily understood by others. However, there’s always some misunderstanding about Aries.

Aries are often symbolized to be the baby of the zodiac. This makes sense. They’re the first sign in the zodiac, and they’re the sign to start off the spring season. In the spring, things are created and born. There’s an initiation of creation. However, it can be hard to understand a baby at first. Until you have numerous experiences with a baby, it can definitely be hard to get along with one. An Aries is the same way and in this sense, they are constantly misunderstood by others.

In my opinion, it’s intriguing to find a sign who is associated with war and conflict, but then with childish innocence at the same time. It’s hard to place two very different images of Aries together: the warrior and the baby. The warrior is strong, aggressive, and dangerous. The baby is weak, harmless, and innocent. The warrior has seen the bloody details of war, while the baby has just been born into the world, not knowing a thing. With this, Aries can present a contradicting image that can be misunderstood by others. While Aries is skilled in combat against others, Aries also lacks the awareness of the people around them.

Although these two images are very different, I think this is where the “survivor” archetype of Aries comes from. When you are a survivor, you have faced peril and overcame it. The circumstances of course can vary, but the connotation with the word survivor can imply someone who has faced unfamiliar experiences (the baby) but has worked skillfully against difficulty and lived (warrior.)

The baby and warrior archetypes ultimately work together to create the survivor archetype. The survivor archetype may be the ultimate archetype an Aries is to reach in their lives. There are negative characteristics of the baby and warrior archetypes, but if the good characteristics are harmoniously put together, I think the survivor archetype will be achieved.

While the manifestation of Aries can be simple compared to the other signs, I believe Aries as a sign itself is complex. I feel that there are a lot of seemingly contradicting images of Aries that can be ignored because they’re seen to be the “most simple sign” out of all the signs.
