Here’s the thing that we know about people: they’re complicated and difficult to figure out. It takes a long time to thoroughly get to know someone and even then, you don’t know everything about them.
If you think of characters in a play, movie, or novel, you want them to be three-dimensional, to have things about them that are surprising and not predictable. Think of the hard-drinking motorcycle dude who loves baking or the prim librarian who has a kinky side. You wouldn’t want to read about someone who was every cliché, such as the preacher who was pious and followed the bible exactly — chances are that they wouldn’t keep your interest for long.
Real people are often more complex than their fictional counterparts because there’s often no rhyme or reason to the things that they do or how they are.
Humans aren’t ever just one way. We can be difficult, not just to other people but to ourselves. How often have you done or said something that shocked not only the people around you but stunned you too?
We can’t know all our motivations, and when we do, we may not know where they came from. In order to peacefully exist with ourselves, we must accept and learn how to live with the unexpected, inappropriate, out-of-left-field things that we do or say. We need to be able to identify our conflicting personality traits and learn how to live with them.
Even a seemingly dull person probably has all kinds of surprising characteristics about them, and if you try to get to know them and find out what makes them who they are, you might find that they’re much more interesting than you ever suspected.
Hopefully, people will look past the surface and dig deep to see what makes you the complex and fascinating person that you are. You may be complicated but getting to know you is so worth it.
Here's why you're complicated, according to your zodiac sign.
