No one likes to admit a weakness. Perhaps it's a sign of failure. But there's nothing worse than being asked the question, "What is your greatest weakness?" in the middle of a job interview. 

Each and every one of us has a weakness that hinders us in life. It’s no surprise that no one is perfect. We all have habits or traits that don’t always help us and in fact actually, make things more difficult for us.

Weaknesses can include: procrastinating too much even when you know you have a lot to do, being forgetful of things that are important to your loved ones (this definitely ruins relationships), and looking to the wrong things to make you happy.

These weaknesses make it harder for you to be at your very best. They might hinder you from performing well at work or school, or they might cause trouble in your relationships.

These weaknesses might also be just plain unhealthy for you. Some flaws may be simply embarrassing to admit. 

This could be why employers ask their potential job applicants to fess up their biggest weakness with sad details of potential character flaws and shortcomings almost like a confession.

Weaknesses might deter us from being at our very best, but it’s also important to remember that EVERYONE has weaknesses.

Everyone has some habit or trait that they’d like to get rid of. And while it is absolutely okay to not be perfect, it’s also great to work on your weaknesses if you can identify them.

If you need some help figuring out what your weaknesses are and how to work on them, you can look to the stars. Believe it or not, your zodiac sign can say a lot about your personality and character traits.

If you want to find out which of your traits are holding you back from being the boss AF person that you were meant to be, then you can get some hints from astrologyhoroscopes and the zodiac. 

Some zodiac signs have weaknesses that include being lazy or procrastinating on everything. Other signs have weaknesses that include being forgetful or reckless and those are the people you should try to avoid dating at all costs.

But all hope is not lost — the stars can also tell you exactly what you need to do to overcome these weaknesses:

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

aries zodiac sign weaknesses

The biggest weakness of Aries is her tendency to take on more than she can handle. She says yes to all projects and assignments that are handed to her, no matter how much she already has on her plate.

Taking on all this work eventually stresses her out, especially if she can’t make her deadlines.

To overcome this, she needs to learn to say no, pace herself and take on one project at a time.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus can be overly competitive. She always wants to be first in everything, and she gets jealous easily.

Whether it’s a girl that her partner is friends with or a new employee at work, Taurus sees other people as competition.

To overcome this weakness, Taurus needs to remind herself that she is doing enough and that other people aren’t always a threat. Just because someone else is successful doesn’t mean she hasn’t been either.

And just because her bae is friends with another girl does NOT mean he will leave her.
