It's Difficult For These 4 Stubborn Zodiac Signs To Empathize With Someone Else

There are some zodiac signs with bad personality flaws that I can deal with, but then there are some who absolutely drive me crazy. Thanks to their horoscopes, there are some people who are just more stubborn and uncompromising than the rest.

I know, I know, you can’t help what astrology says about your sign, but you CAN try to be better in spite of your sign’s flaws… and don’t tell me you can’t.

For example, you shouldn’t blame your stubbornness on the fact that you’re a Taurus and it’s in the stars for you to say no to everyone, or excuse that you’re a giant b*tch on account of your Sun being in Scorpio. You’re sign doesn’t make you a b*tch, you just are one, girl.

And speaking of Taurus and Scorpio, imagine what it’s like to have two of the least understanding and forgiving signs belong to your parents.

Look, I know what I said about not blaming your zodiac sign on your personality, but it’s also very hard to deal with two very volatile signs like Scorpio and Taurus growing up.

In fact, you could say that it was a total nightmare, especially when my pea-brained, middle school-self made mistakes.

You would have thought I burned down an entire city the way they acted when I messed up.

And sure, part of it was probably just the way they handled things, but you can’t tell me that their star signs didn’t at least play a very small part in their astrological personalities, too.

What’s worse, they aren’t the only Tauruses (Taureans?) and Scorpios in my family, which, as you can imagine, is like hell on earth. I’m joking… kind of.

I mean, just like the other zodiac signs in this list, they’re fun when you catch them in a good mood.

But when sh*t hits the fan, you should probably look for shelter very far away, possibly in another city or country, because these signs know how to make you wish you were never born.

Take Capricorn, for example. You definitely want to look up to this sign when it comes to getting ahead in your career (because he’s fiercely successful and a good role model), but get on his bad side — or simply be near him when he’s angry – and you’ll disintegrate with one look from him.

My point is, just because these signs have their redeeming qualities, they’re also very hard to handle when it comes to their not-so-redeeming qualities.

Not only do these zodiac signs have a hard time being understanding and empathetic, but they find it extremely hard to be forgiving, too.

But hey, if they can be nasty, so can I. Keep reading for the horoscope who how can be neither understanding nor forgiving towards other zodiac signs, and don’t say I didn’t warn you — this tea is scathing hot.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, you are incredibly uncompromising, which might be good in some situations, but in most others, it just makes you look like the biggest jerk on earth.

When it comes time to forgive and forget, you never forget (in case you need ammo later) and you find it incredibly hard to forgive, too (thanks to your love of grudges). For you, forgiveness is reserved for yourself and anyone else in your inner circle.

And don’t even get you started on being understanding, either, am I right? You’re a very self-indulgent person, AKA selfish, which means that it almost never crosses your mind to be understanding of what others are going through.

As long as you can breeze through life with ease, then everyone else should be able to figure out their own problems without extra help.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, you believe that pitying yourself when times are tough is a good way to protect your heart and not look weak. So, when it comes to others asking for forgiveness and understanding, you don’t want to give up your smokescreen that labels you a bad ass just to make someone else feel better.

It sounds harsh, I know, but you really do only worry about yourself. You can also be very grudging at times, opting to keep that chip on your shoulder instead of seeing things from other people’s points of view.

Hey, that’s fine and dandy if it works for you, but it’s going to suck when it comes to dealing with people who matter the most. When you only worry about your own problems, it’s hard for people to find a reason to keep you around.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio, you are definitely the scariest sign to be around, especially when you’re angry. Just because someone wants you to walk a mile in their shoes does NOT mean it’s going to happen, and how dare they ask you to do so in the first place.

You’re the person who actually likes being known as the mysterious, scary one who never seems fazed by anything or anyone. That’s great and all, but does being distrusting and secretive really make you look good?

All I see is someone who refuses to forgive even the tiniest mistakes and will grill someone about their mistakes instead of showing a little empathy. Too cruel? Maybe. But let me ask you honestly: Do you even care? Because sometimes, it feels like you don’t.

CAPRICORN (December 20 - January 19)

If anyone could take the cake for being the sign with the least amount of forgiveness and understanding, it would be you, Capricorn. Go ahead and celebrate that win, but don’t be shocked if no one else celebrates with you.

You try to treat everyone equally, which is great in the general sense, but when any other normal human would opt for empathy, you go in for the kill. You are a very unforgiving sign because you feel that if you can handle problems and deal with your mistakes like an adult, then anyone can.

And when people ask you for forgiveness or a little understanding, you get condescending; hey, if they can’t handle life, you should be able to make them feel bad about it, right? But what I think we’d all genuinely like to know is this: Do you ever get off your high horse?
