The stars know you're flawed but beautiful.

Every great fictional and real-life character has some heartbreaking characteristic about them; something that lets us see that they’re human. Sometimes this trait is not unlike an Achilles Heel for them, a weakness that eventually leads to their downfall, and other times, it’s more of an endearing quality.

If someone is too perfect and everything comes easily to them, there’s no reason to root for them or care what happens to them one way or another.

Perfection doesn’t keep our interest. It’s great that they have such a lucky and fabulous life, but that doesn’t give us anything to relate to and we wish them well and go on to something or someone else to give our attention to.

It’s difficult to trust someone who has no weakness or vulnerability. It doesn’t seem honest if they’ve never had to struggle or ever had a moment of doubt about themselves.

We need to see that the reason they are who they are came at a price. We want to see behind the facade and learn why someone acts as they do. If they seem to be an egomaniac, we want to know that they appear that way because they’re desperately afraid of being bullied or rejected.

I have a friend who always falls for the wrong guys and each time she does, it breaks my heart a little. She’s so hopeful going into the relationship when everyone can see the million red flags that are up. She’s blind to the pain that she’s eventually going to feel.

Deep down, she knows she’s done it again: she’s fallen for the wrong guy. But she never loses that hope that this time it will be different. And all her friends and family hope that they’re wrong too and that finally, this time, she’ll have found happiness.

Here are the zodiac personality traits that are the most heartbreaking. 

 

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The most heartbreaking thing about you is how you put on a brave face even when you're scared sh*tless. You never want to appear to be anything other than courageous and brave, even when the activity that you're doing merits a little fear or humility. You're not super-human and it's okay if you show your vulnerability from time to time; no one will think less of you. It's great that you do things and take chances but you don't have to do everything; even you have limitations.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Your most heartbreaking trait is how inflexible you are. It really is your way or the highway and, unfortunately, there are people close to you who would rather not be around you than get into a standoff with you. When you refuse to compromise, it shows others how unwilling you are to see things from another perspective, and how no matter what the circumstances are, you'll never change. Your bullheadedness most probably comes from a place of fear. Try to open up a little more and you'll be surprised at how much easier things are when you're not quite so rigid in your thinking.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

The most heartbreaking thing about you is how inconsistent you can be. One moment you're the picture of responsibility and reliability, and the next, you're being an irresponsible flake. You want to be mature, make the right decisions and show up when you're supposed to, but you can get distracted to the point where you lose your sense of time and urgency. Try to pay attention to what's happening around you and stay present. That way, you be aware of what you need to be doing and you'll make it happen.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

The most heartbreaking thing about you is how your emotions have total control over you. Everything affects you like a tidal wave and it can be exhausting to be around the constant high drama of your life. It's not that you shouldn't feel your feels, it's that you don't have to feel every one of them to the same degree. You're in control, not your emotions.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Your most heartbreaking trait is how blindly self-centered you can be. Not everything is about you and when it isn't, there's no reason to insert yourself into it. It's not that you're not generous and giving, it's just that you do everything hoping that it will reflect back favorably on you. No one is saying that you should pretend to be modest, just hold back a little and stop indulging your over-inflated ego.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Your most heartbreaking trait is how hard you are on yourself. You beat yourself up when you make a mistake or don't know the answer. No one expects you to know everything and unless you're a savant of some kind, you should aspire to such impossible standards. Give yourself a break! You're incredible and everyone seems to know it but you.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Your most heartbreaking trait is how desperately you want to be liked by everybody. This is an impossible goal and will only lead to frustration. Not everybody is going to like you and even people who liked you before may not like you now. Your happiness isn't dependent on how others think of you. Loving yourself is the most important thing; how others view you is secondary.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

The most heartbreaking thing about you is how when you see red, there's no stopping you. Not everything or everyone deserves payback — some things, most things, you need to just let go of and move on. When you expend so much energy getting even with people, it's damaging to your mental and physical health. You can be the bigger person and be perfectly happy.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Your most heartbreaking thing about you is that you can stay in one place for long. It's one thing if you have the travel bug occasionally, but for you, it's more urgent than that. You can't ever just be; you have to keep moving at all times and this makes you behave erratically. No one is saying that you must commit to one place forever and never leave your house, it's more of an inner calm that you need to develop so you don't have to be somewhere new to find peace.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Your most heartbreaking quality is how you go from zero to 100 on the doom scale. Nothing is ever just bad, it's a disaster. You're constantly thinking of the worst-case scenarios. Here's the thing about worst-case scenarios: they usually don't happen and when they do, you're not really prepared for them. You can be realistic about a situation without going immediately to the bad place. Things happen and sometimes they morph into something horrible, but most of the time they don't; they stay annoying, inconvenient, and uncomfortable.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

The most heartbreaking zodiac personality trait you have is how sensitive you can be when it comes to your own feelings and how insensitive you can be when it comes to the feelings of others. It's a total disconnect. Treat others the way you'd wish to be treated and toughen up where you're concerned. No one is out to get you and when someone hurts you, they generally don't mean to hurt others and sometimes have no idea that you have.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

The most heartbreaking thing about you is how unsuspecting you are with other people and how you allow yourself to be conned repeatedly. It's great that you're open to other people but that doesn't mean you should allow yourself to be so easily led by them. You're smart, so trust your intuition about people and don't agree to things too quickly. If you need to do some research or have someone checked out before you agree to partner with them, do it.
